The Joomla! link structure has been mystifying me off late as I try to create some links in the content area without the template, menus etc. changing. Until now the only links I used were in menus, but never "inter-content" links.
According to Alledia's Understanding Joomla ItemID, there are two identifiers that are key to calling Joomla content - the ItemID and the ID. What these correspond to are alluded to in Alledia's article.
Key questions are:
- Where to get the Id from
- Where to get the ItemId from
The ItemId is the unique identifier that Joomla! uses to construct your page with the different modules, their positions, and other such page-structure related decisions the CMS has to make.
