When you create a new category and make the featured article, it still doesn’t show on front page. I experienced this issue in Joomla 3.0 and spent almost an hour to fix this. You can try below options.

Login into Joomla Administration

  • Click on Menus>>Main Menu
  • Open Home Menu and ensure its Type is “Featured Articles”

  • Click on Advance Options tab and ensure you have selected your desired categories or All Categories under “Select Categories”


  • Click on Save and close
  • Refresh your homepage to verify your Featured Article appear on front page.

This has helped me and I hope it will you too.
