Links in category description to articles

Post by reverendwolf » Sun Sep 19, 2021 12:38 am

Looking to have links to articles in the category from the text in the description. I have tried to use the article button but I just get an empty pop-up box. Do I have to just copy/paste the address into the link pop-up box or is there a way to have the articles list in the box from the button?

Thanks,
JJ

When you click on the button Article in TinyMCE the pop-up window should contain articles list as shown below:
article_selection_J3-9-28.jpg
article_selection_J3-10-2.jpg

You may notice, that the same behavior is exhibited in both Joomla! 3.9.28 and Joomla! 3.10.2.

What version of Joomla! is being used in your site?

Joomla! 3.9.27 Stable

Joomla Platform 13.1.0 Stable

When I do what you have suggested I just get an empty box.

That can be caused by a badly written front end Template. Update then test with Protostar
