Can someone let me know how to add some text / syntax at the bottom of all joomla articles. So lets say I wanted to add xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx to end of each article as shown in the image would that be possible? I'm using joomla 3.4.1

You can use template override to do this

Copy the /components/com_content/views/article/tmpl/default.php file to /templates/{your template}/html/com_content/article/default.php

Edit and seek for

    <?php echo $this->item->text; ?>

Then add your html after this line.

You can also modify the value of $this->item->text using php

  • tbh, this is a different question to the Batch Edit. That was resolved by @ffrewin, as a result I ended purchasing DB Replacer. This question asks how to make one sweeping change to every article. I want to add some thing like xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx which can only be viewed in source editor – Carltonp Jun 30 '16 at 17:41
  • Hello Jose, copying the default.php to my com_content/article/default.php sounds like it could potentially damage my site. – Carltonp Jun 30 '16 at 17:45
  • You must copy it from components/... To your templates/... Read my answer – José Sánchez Martín Jun 30 '16 at 18:03
