I had the same problem months ago. After installing a site for a new client, with more than 1000 image to upload, I implement this action:
Create a folder for each month 2015-08, 2015-09, 2015-10...(Its more fast look images in same month)
Install JCE Editor with Media Manager
With this Editor and this plugin you can upload unlimited images at same time. ...
You can link to a category which has two child category (red and blue in your example).
Your Menu links to category A which contains category b (blue) and category C (red).
You can put your slider in an article which belong to category B or C.
Then, you can order your articles.
Instead of trying to do nested categories you might want to just make a single article and link to that. Then use loadposition (or NoNumber modules anywhere) and just embed some modules INTO the page (not into module positions, though you could also do that).
Then you can stick whatever you want on the page, including a module that lists all the categories ...
I don't see any point to follow a tutorial for Joomla 1.5, when you try to work on J3.
There are so many differences between the 2 versions.
For what you want to do, a simple google search would give you plenty of resources.
Here there are some:
How to save Custom Fields in Core components
Add custom / extra field to a category
Maybe not the exact solution you're looking for, but I recently used an extension called Mod LCA, a module that displays all your articles by year, month, day etc. The free version has a backlink to the author, but the pro version is about $3, IIRC.
There might be other modules for you in the Articles Structured Lists category from JED.
Alternatively you can change your default editor to "none".
This will give you a raw HTML format for every text you type, so tags will stay where you want them.
Users -> *your user name* -> Basic settings -> Editor
But if you are not that experienced with pure HTML, stay with the solution from Lodder.
My preferred way of doing this is to create a module for your code (using for example Custom HTML Advanced or the built-in Iframe Wrapper module. Publish the module to a custom position (like GoogleMap). Then load the module into any article using this code:
Joomla will take care of the rest, and insert the code into your article.
Maybe this is not the problem, you make sure you have clicked the column title for sorting. Also, you can try to filter articles by category first, because I dont think you can sort articles from different categories.
The global parameters for any component are stored in the params column for the component in the #__extensions table. One route would be to load the params using Joomla's component helper class like so:
$params = JComponentHelper::getParams('com_content');
Once you have the params you will be able to get and set them like this:
while I'm not sure why the drag-and-drop order behavior isn't working for you, for modules at least, if you open the module there is an 'Ordering' configuration option that lets you select the order it should appear in.
Maybe a dumb question, but does your cursor change to the 4-way arrows before you grab the item to drag it?
I can't say for sure why is that happening, but I have a hunch...
I bet you any money that your site went through few Joomla updates, and that at some point in time was on J! lower than 3.6.3.
You see, J!3.6.0 which was released on 2016-07-12, introduced a change in New Article Ordering. Until then, since a dawn of time, every new article when created, ...
It seems there no inbuilt feature for that. But there is a plugin for that from Nonumber called "Better preview". It also allow to preview unpublished article (not in a new browser tab but in a back-end popup window).
EDIT: its quite buggy on multi-language website (path issue)
I just sorted it out... and found what was causing this.
The issue was caused by a bug in the ACL Manager extension. I had ACL Manager 2.4.4 installed and that had a bug as reported here, although the post mentions the bug was for Joomla 2.5, it seems it is also for Joomla 3.x.
Disabling ACL Manager System Plugin, resolves the Articles Manager issue.
You are starting from 20 independent Cpanels. Then, you are trying to connect to the same database and load a site for each Cpanel from a single folder. Mainly, you are going against Cpanel design principles of hosting.
The article Multiple Domains and Web Sites in a single Joomla! installation assumes multiple domains in the same Cpanel. Plus, you only ...
I don't think this problem happens for everyone. I think the specific search keywords that you are using are the problem - or maybe something else specific to your website(s) (perhaps a common plugin?). I tried the above pattern on 3 different sites on 3 different servers all running ModSecurity, but the rule (rule #390606) wasn't triggered.
Having said ...
OK I've solved this one with help from @FFrewin & @Lodder
After (painstakingly) comparing all my database tables with a similar Joomla 3.4.4 site I noticed that I was missing some rows in my #__content_types table.
I only had two rows (#__Article and #__DPCalendar), whereas I should have had around 15 rows.
I exported the populated table from a ...
I tried various things on a clean Joomla and was not able to find anything obvious, or replicate the issue. This seems to be something specific to your site.
I can give you a few troubleshooting directions:
Start disabling the majority of plugins one by one as a first step, to see if it is related with any of those.
Possible originations of this message ...
You are really right. A note field for articles can come very handy.
In the meanwhile I suggest you to add your own field for notes in articles using this plugin:
I also suggest you check this:
Is there any way to create new publishing options for ...
You can check the permission of your new created group for this action:
Menu System >> Global Configuration >> Articles >>
Tab "Permissions" >>
Click in your new created group (in this example was "manager");
Check the permissions for your new created group:
I've wanted to edit the intro and full image paths directly myself. They are simply fields with a readonly attribute, and you can actually enable them with a couple of lines of jQuery:
Figured it out, instead of using the List All Categories just choose a single article and then create a new module for that page to display all of your Category/Sub-Category articles. Here's how to do it...
Go to Extensions » Module Manager and Create a new "Articles Category" module, leave the mode set to "Normal"and specify the module position where you ...
I think that you will need a custom component and a plugin:
the plugin will change the state of new articles to unpublished. onContentBeforeSave event will help you with that. More details about the content events can be found here.
the component will list new versions of articles. You will need some kind of task there to accept a new version and update the ...
Template Overrides work also for Administration. Just copy content of /administrator/components/com_content/views/articles/tmpl to /administrator/templates/isis/html/com_content/articles/. Then you can edit items view (/templates/isis/html/com_content/articles/default.php) and add the images. Of course if you use administration template other then ISIS just ...
Yes that's possible, try this URL:
This works with every other filter as well. Just look up the name attribute of the filter HTML element.
Use ContentHelperRoute to get article category url. It can be one like this this article view:
If you need this out of com_content component you will have to add ContentHelperRoute declaration too:
Do something like this:
$catID = JRequest::getVar('catid');
echo "<a href='index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=".$catID."'>Link to blog view of category</a><br />";
This works, of course, only if you have article shown in "component" position at the moment. Link is blog view of current ...
There can be more than one ways to achieve something like this, but many of them might require a bit of extra work and programming experience (custom menu items, template overrides or alternative layouts).
Brian's answer seems like the easiest and a straight-forward way for your case.
You can populate a single article that you will dedicate for this page, ...
