When I was starting with Joomla, my first struggle was how to change the frontpage article column size to single column. It took me a week to figure out that it can be done on the menu configuration. Well, those are the times when I was really lazy to navigate through Joomla's admin. This tip will aid new users on how change article column size on the frontpage.

By default, the frontpage article is configured to display 1 leading article, 2 columns, and 5 links. Look at the figure below:

To change the default, just follow the followng steps:

STEP 1:

Click mainmenu from Joomla Administrator Menu menu.
Click mainmenu from Joomla Administrator Menu menu.

STEP 2:

Click Home item from the main menu links.

STEP 3:

Set the Leading, Intro, Columns, and Links values.

Like JoomlaHacks.com, if you want a single column on the frontpage, just set the following values:
Leading = 1
Intro = 4
Colums = 1
Links = 5

Or you can also set
Leading = 0
Intro = 5

This setting will display 5 article's intro on a single columns and 5 more article links below.

NOTE:  This configuration is not only available in the "Home" (frontpage), but also for all pages such as blog sections etc.
