Articles Disappear & Categories Keep Changing

Post by ninpolearner » Thu Feb 08, 2018 4:32 pm

I'm new to Joomla. I made a Joomla website once before and I remember it being a little confusing, but I figured it out and it worked find. Maybe I don't understand how things might work differently now, but I keep finding that the category I specified in a menu item has changed to another category. When I change it to the one I want, other menu items change to the category I specified for the previous menu item.

Also, articles that show up on the front end can't be found in the article manager. Searching returns no results. Where is it storing these articles?

I'm seriously confused. I must be doing something wrong. Anyone know what's going on here?

All articles are stored in the database. The front page may also display modules which you can manage in Extensions - Modules.

Are you talking about a new installation of the latest version of Joomla, or the old installation that may not have been updated for a while? Which version is it?

What is the URL?
