I am Using Joomla 3.8. I added some contacts to the system and a menu. The menu contains a menu entry "Contacts" that lists all of the contacts of a certain category. This all works fine and was easy to do using the built-in menu entry types provided by Joomla.

However now I would like to add an additional sentence about e-mail privacy to that contact list. Since the list is generated by Joomla (and is no editable article) I have no idea how to add custom text above or below the contact list.

How can I do that?

  • Is it a static bit of text? Can we see a link to your page? Or a screenshot with a bit of photoshop work with what you wish to add?

  • Yes a static bit of text. But I think I found a good solution myself. I will write an answer. Jul 22 '18 at 9:06

I think I found a very good solution for the problem. Key is the fact that multiple modules can be located at a single position.

I created a new custom module. Using the WYSIWYG editor I put in my e-mail privacy hint (including a link). Then I located that module to the footer position (which was already used for the copyright) in the right order (privacy hint above copyright). I selected to enable this module for the contact list menu/page only.

The result is exactly what I need. An additional advantage of that solution is that I can easily enable for additional menus/pages.
