Thanks Phranque, but that article is deprecated.
I read it a while ago, but then I discovered it is for version 1.6 and they are up to 2.5.6 now.
It is curious they dropped 'sections', and perhaps that is part of my confusion over 'categories'. It appears there was no real use for 'sections' so they dropped them? I get the same thoughts about 'categories'.
The need for categories seems to elude me.
I can't create an article without assigning it to a category, but if the category isn't there, you have to create a category BEFORE you can create an article? It just seems strange to me. (They even have a category called "uncategorized"?)
It is like the Joomla! CMS is saying,
"...so you want to write an article, ScottM? Well...before you start writing, we need to know what section of the newspaper it is going to appear in...., then we are going to need to know what newspaper is going to publish it before you write anything."
There is just something about Joomla! that seems backwards and it ends up being confusing.
It now looks like there is an extension (K2) that eliminates categories and article and just calls them "items".
