Reiko: Joomla Articles Particle

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Reiko Demo for Joomla


Introduction

The Joomla Articles particle gives you the ability to directly list and pull in Joomla articles directly from the CMS and present them in a clean, organized way. It's important to note this does not take the place of the Page Content particle which essentially displays any article content assigned to the page. This is a controlled, organized particle perfect for showcasing content.
