How to link to an article from within an article in Joomla! 3 without having it assigned to a visible menu

This is likely not the best way to achieve this, but so far I’ve found this to be the simplest way. If I find a better way, I’ll update this article accordingly.

. Create the article that you want an article to link to.
. If one doesn’t already exist, create a hidden menu.
. Create a menu item for the hidden menu.
– Select “Single Article” as the menu item type.
– Select the article you created that the article should link to.
. In the article you want the link to be in, highlight what you want to be the link text. Click the article button at the bottom of the page and select the article you created.
