How to modify the design of modules?

Post by denied » Sun Jan 07, 2007 2:36 pm

How can I modify the design of the modules? I know how to modify the main template (from the template tutorial) but I didn't find nothing about modifying the layout of the modules. I want to change the tables with div's. How to do that? What files i must to modify and how to modify that files?
Thanks.

Basically you would have to go through each module and edit their individual pages and replace the tables for divs.

There is another option in that you can try the Accessible Joomla! patch http://developer.joomla.org/sf/projects ... ble_joomla

It all depends on the level of modification you want.

If you just want to replace the outer module structure, just use the -1 switch on 1.0.x and "xhtml" on 1.5. i.e

Code: Select all

<?php mosLoadModules ( 'left', -1 ); ?>
If you want to customise both the module structures and the modules themselves, you need to edit frontend.html.php in your /includes directory (1.0.x, still need to confirm where this is located in 1.5).  a8e doesn't touch frontend.html.php (which is where the underlying switches are located for module creation). The rest of the files you need, if you are physically editing each module is located inside the /modules directory.
