I am using Articles - Categories module in my Joomla website (my custom template) and it works great, meaning that it lists all articles with intro text from the categories I want.

But it does not show the intro-image of these articles although I defined them in each article "Image and links" tab. Is there a way to show intro images?

I suppose that I need to do some template overriding.

You can see it here:

I just want to mention that bold black titles are categories titles and bellow them are listed articles with intro texts.

Need help!

Thank you!

Yep, I would also do the template override.

Fetch the file components/com_content/views/categories/tmpl/default_items.php and copy it to <your_template>/html/com_content/categories/default_items.php. (I am not totally sure about the correct name, see the Joomla docs about this)

Now you can edit it. In the file components/com_content/views/category/tmpl/blog_item.php I found <?php echo JLayoutHelper::render('joomla.content.intro_image', $this->item); ?>, this could perhaps make the deal.

Nice big machines, BTW. :)

  • Solved! I put the code: <?php $images = json_decode($item->images); ?> <img class="image_intro" src="<?php echo $images->image_intro; ?>" alt="<?php echo $images->image_intro_alt; ?>"/> after the following code in my overriding file of the joomla core file modules/mod_articles_categories/tmpl/default.php and intro images of articles shown up in module Articles-Categories listing. If anyone has other solutions, come on shoot... – Miha Jul 22 '15 at 9:45

Solved! I put the code:

<?php $images = json_decode($item->images); ?> <img class="image_intro" src="<?php echo $images->image_intro; ?>" alt="<?php echo $images->image_intro_alt; ?>"/>

after the following code in my overriding file of the joomla core file:

modules/mod_articles_categories/tmpl/default.php

 * @copyright   Copyright (C) 2005 - 2015 Open Source Matters, Inc. All rights reserved.

defined('_JEXEC') or die;

?>
<ul class="category-module<?php echo $moduleclass_sfx; ?>">
    <?php if ($grouped) : ?>
        <?php foreach ($list as $group_name => $group) : ?>
        <li>
            <ul>
                <?php foreach ($group as $item) : ?>    
                    <li>   

and intro images of articles shown up in module Articles-Categories listing. If anyone has other solutions, come on shoot...

Path should actually be: modules/mod_articles_category/tmpl/default.php

One more important suggestion, place the changed files in your own template in /[yourTemplateName]/html/mod_articles_category/default.php

This way the file will not be removed when upgrading Joomla.
