Try to show all Web Links Categories on one page

Post by stephenhenry » Mon Oct 01, 2007 3:34 pm

I'm trying to show all Web Links on one page, but be able to still group them by category, and have the headings for each category shown. 

The goal is the have the Category header, links, next category header, links, etc. as the user scrolls down the page.

I've managed to list one category twice, but how to I a  different categories to show instead?

Thanks for the help,

Steve

Did you find a fix for this as I'm trying to do the same thing. I guess we could just do it as a normal page but it would be nice to use the link feature. I seem to spend a lot of time doing things the old way in joomla because I can't work out the proper way. This must be possible :-\

Nothing yet.  I've found some modules and componets that will list them all on one page, but only the title, no description.  Hopefully someone can help.

I tried "All Weblinks Module V1.2" Which seems to work a lot like the "Weblinks in Columns" component.  I was able to get both to work, but neither show the descriptions.  THe Columsn component also seemed to need one column per category, but I didn't play with it to much.

I've made some progress here using the  All Weblinks Module V1.2  http://extensions.joomla.org/component/ ... Itemid,35/


Ater installing the Weblinks Module I modified mod_allweblinks.php as follows:


Change:

$content .= "catid&id=$row->id")."'>".$row->title."
";



To:


$content .= "catid&id=$row->id")."'>".$row->title." "  .$row->description. ""  ; 




Now I need to figure out how to change the background of each link so they alternate like the original weblinks listing. 


Right now I'm doing a hack job of placing just the module within the page.  At some point I'll probably switch to the weblinks in columns component so I'm using an actual component instead of using a component just to show a module.  If you need help changing your web links page to show just the module and nothing else let me know and I can tell you how to do that, but like I said, it's a hack job, but it's temporary. 

First I need to figure out out to alternate the table backgrounds. Hopefully someone here can help.

As far as I remember, I did this on a site a while ago (on a mambo site, but the idea is still the same). I just went in and edited the weblink component, and removed part of the WHERE clause in the SQL statement.

Its a while since I did it, but it might work ???

I am interested in having a list of the web link categories with descriptions show up in a content.  This sounds pretty similar to what you guys are talking about, but your knowledge level is way above mine.  If someone knows a straight forward way to do this, please let me know. 

Thanks, Kurt

I am trying to do the same thing in Joomla 3.3 and unable to do this. Has anyone found out how to do this or found an extension? I need to get this done ASAP.
