Content layout in Joomla! 1.5 is controlled in important ways by the view
selected when a menu link is created. The Joomla! core includes a set of
content views, some of which are described as blog views and some are
generally described as list or table views.
For this task you will create a new section view that from a menu link
first presents a list of categories and then when the category names are
clicked, presents a blog view of the articles in the category.
I am a sophmore at a private High School in Denver, Colorado. I've enjoyed working on web coding projects all my life, and have enjoyed time working on the zOOm Media Gallery and old Joomla-SMF bridge. I'm just finishing up getting my Aptana IDE ready to get to work on this project. So far it seems fairly straight forward. It requires modifying the menu component (admin) in order to add the new view. Then the creation of a new view in com_content to display a table with the list of categories. Clicking the category would then link to the corresponding category (view=category).
The only thing I haven't been able to come up with yet is a name for the new section view.
