With this new module we can display the contents of a category in a list layout. We can also display multiple categories.
Install the module in the standard Joomla way ergo through the extension manager.
Okay. Now let's head to the module manager, select add a new module and choose the new CE Category module.
In the left hand pane title it and do all your standard Joomla positioning etc.
Now we will go onto the right hand pane which is where all the exciting new features live.
Select normal to configure the module to show based on parameters you choose yourself. Choose dynamic to have the module detect if it is on a category view page and display contacts accordingly.
I think the next option explains itself nicely in the tooltip. Do you want the dynamic module to display on the contact page or not?
Order your field by:
then select underneath if you would to ascend or descend through your selection in the ordering style you chose.
Would you like your contacts to be grouped? If so choose a group from either:
Then once again choose whether to ascend or descend through the contacts.
If your well versed in PHP you can add your own format for displaying the dates. Even if you’re not you can go to the link provided in Contact Enhanced (this one) to read up on it and have a go.
The display options are similar to in the other contact enhanced modules wherein you can choose which information from your contacts you want to display for each contact in the module.
Once you’ve created contacts in Contact Enhanced chances are you will know what you want and want not to show. The list is very self explanatory, just select show or hide for each option you wish to hide/show.
As always the Advanced Options section is the same as all other Joomla modules, allowing you to add class suffixes etc.
I hope you’ve found this setup guide useful :)
