Joomla 4 release not only improves the inherent features but it also brings a lot of new useful features. An interesting feature is that Joomla 4 allows you to add your articles to a menu without leaving the article itself. This feature provides an efficient way to speed up the process of publishing articles by removing the need to close articles to then go to the Menu Manager.

In Joomla 4 templates, you can totally control your site without much effort. This tutorial is about the steps to add a menu item directly from an article.
