Every time that you post a problem, PLEASE add the Joomla and the extension's versions and revisions (for example: Joomla 3.3.6, Contact Enhanced 3.3.5), PHP version and Server's Operating System. If you only manage only one site it is easier if you edit your profile and just add that information to your signature. Don't forget to add a detailed description of the problem. If possible, write down all steps to simulate the problem.

Before submitting a new post, PLEASE make sure you are running the latest version, test in different browsers (IE, FF, Chrome,..) and clear Joomla and browser's cache after every change you make.

Also, most questions are already answered in our FAQ and in iFAQ and Contact Enhanced documentation pages.

Removing image and name links in 'List First Level Categories'

6 months 1 week ago #24812 by tapiochre
I have attempted to create an override for the emove the links for contact images and their names when using a menu defined for List First Level Categories but have failed.

By editing the $item->link to be
$item->link ="#"

I can stop the links from opening the contact form but its not ideal.

I think I need to work on this entire block of code but I don;t know how.
$item->link = Route::_(ContactenchancedHelperRoute::getContactRoute($item->slug, $item->catid)); 					
if($this->params->get( 'show_contact_image' ) == '1' AND $item->image ){ $image = HTMLHelper::_('image', Uri::base(). $item->image, Text::sprintf('COM_CONTACTENHANCED_CONTACT_IMAGE_ALT',$item->name ), array('align' => 'middle', 'class'=> 'ce-contact-img-cat')); echo HTMLHelper::_('link',$item->link,$image, array('class'=>'category'.$this->params->get( 'pageclass_sfx' )) ); echo HTMLHelper::_('link',$item->link,$item->name, array('class'=>'category'.$this->params->get( 'pageclass_sfx' )) ); }elseif($this->params->get( 'show_contact_image','tooltip' ) == 'tooltip' AND $item->image){ $image = HTMLHelper::_('image', Uri::base(). $item->image, Text::sprintf('COM_CONTACTENHANCED_CONTACT_IMAGE_ALT',$item->name ), array('align' => 'middle', 'class'=> 'ce-contact-img-tooltip')); HTMLHelper::_('bootstrap.tooltip'); echo HTMLHelper::_('link',$item->link,$image, array('class'=>'hasTooltip category'.$this->params->get( 'pageclass_sfx' )) ); }else{ echo HTMLHelper::_('link',$item->link,$item->name, array('class'=>'category'.$this->params->get( 'pageclass_sfx' )) ); } ?>

Would you be able to quiclky advise what this needs to be to remove the links please?

Hope its not a killer!

Dear Chris,

We've never had this request. If you don't want to show the Contact Form, you can disable the contact form only, so it will still display the link to the contact page, but without the contact form.

Customizations are out of the scope of our support, however I'll create a template html override for contacts_items.php so you can upload to

Best regards,
