Zentools and Link A in Joomla 3

Zentools offers numerous options for organising and displaying Joomla content, including galleries, slideshows, accordions and a lot more. In this tutorial a combination of a Zentools grid and Joomla's Link A functionality is used to display content.

Using Joomla's Link A in a Zentools module means that when the module is clicked, you are directed to a different page from the original content source.

This provides an excellent way of linking to pages that normally can't display content in a Zentools module.
