I'm working with Joomla 3.3.6 and I've been looking to achieve something like this:

WHAT I HAVE

category description

"article title1" "article title2" "article title3"

"article title4" "article title5" "article title6"

"article title7" "article title8" "article title9"

.......

WHAT I WANT

category description

SUBCATEGORY TITLE1
"article title1" "article title2" "article title3"

"article title4" "article title5" "article title6"

SUBCATEGORY TITLE2
"article title7" "article title8" "article title9"

.........

Can't find any extension, only found a workaround with modules, but it has some negative points.
Probably I've got to do a override!
Note: I'm using the Nite yootheme template
How can I do this?
thanks in advance

UPDATE - FOUND A SOLUTION


1) follow the instructions on how to create a layout override in a yootheme template in this link: http://yootheme.com/themes/documentation/developers/customization where it says "LAYOUT OVERRIDES
2) becaus we're dealiing with the category blog, following the instructions in '1)' copy the blog.php file
3) open the file in a txt editor
4) search for this piece of code

if ($count = count($columns)) {

and right below it place this code:

$this->item = &$item;
$subcat = $this->item->category_title;
$articles  .= '<h3 class="uk-h3">'. $subcat .'</h3>';

that's it

Yes, a layout override is the best solution at component level.
