Additional article views in 1.6

Post by joshuap » Wed Apr 28, 2010 10:23 pm

I'm not sure if it's been suggested yet, but could we have menu item types for "all categories" blog and "all categories" list views? This would allow Joomla to function better for those who want to use it for a single blog site with top-level categories. In the old Section/category model these views might not have made sense, but in my opinion now that Joomla has finally ditched the Sections (thank god), having top level article views is a given.

I've never contributed code to the Joomla project, but if someone would tell me where to start, I'd be happy to add this functionality myself.

Hi and welcome Joshua

First place to start is Brad's blog link.

Second is the developers on Google Groups:

Ask them and they'll open a code branch for you to contribute.

Hi Joshua

An "All Categories" view is indeed in 1.6 and ships with a single default layout. However, in Joomla 1.6 you can add additional layouts to the HTML overrides folder in the default template now.
