If you would like to change the structure/styling for an Article view, you need to create a Template Override, all of which is explained here:

http://docs.joomla.org/How_to_override_the_output_from_the_Joomla!_core

Template overrides allow us to edit the view of an extension without editing the core file which may get overridden in an update.

So once you have you override done, you can now edit:

ROOT/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/html/com_content/article/default.php

Hope this helps

  • thanx, I want to change the appearance of the article page. Does override help me? Sorry if this seems simple but I'm new to Joomla 3.3.6 – Ya Basha Feb 10 '15 at 14:06
  • Yes, Once you've created your article, you can edit the HTML layout in file given in my answer. – Lodder Feb 10 '15 at 14:07
