I can't find the custom readmore button. K2 button or from Joomla core?

Post by pascalmariany » Wed Jun 09, 2021 7:21 am

For a client I'm administrating his Joomla website at www.devolkswagencamper.nl. The orange button is at this page: https://www.devolkswagencamper.nl/campers and is called "Offerte aanvragen".

The goal is to change this button text and it's URL. I checked everything in the back-end. The site uses the K2 extension. I also checked the source code and I can't find it.

The source code from the editor (K2 item):

Code: Select all

<p>Deze blauwe Volkswagencamper is een type2 camperbus waarin niet alleen gereden kan worden, maar ook in kan worden overnacht. De camper is dus multi inzetbaar voor vele gelegenheden. Denk aan een romantisch kampeeravontuur, gezellig weg met vrienden of als spectaculaire trouwauto waarin ook nog een huwelijksnacht kan worden beleefd.</p>
<hr id="system-readmore" />
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Mr. Aqua is van het bouwjaar 1978 en komt oorspronkelijk uit Duitsland. En hij voelt zich het prettigst bij een maximale snelheid van 90 kilomter per uur. Er kunnen maximaal 5 personen in worden vervoerd, dit is incl. bestuurder. En er kunnen 4 à 5 personen in overnachten.</p>
<p><strong>Eigenschappen:</strong></p>
<p>Bouwjaar: 1978<br />Land van herkomst: Duitsland<br />Brandstof: Benzine<br />Type: T2B<br />Motor: 1600 CC (47 PK)<br />Maximale snelheid: 90 km p/u<br />Mogelijkheid tot zelf rijden: Ja<br />Aantal personen: 5 personen (incl. bestuurder)<br />Indeling: 2 zitplaatsen voor en 3 achter<br />Mogelijkheid om te slapen: Ja, met 4 à 5 personen</p>
<p><strong>Inventaris camperbus:</strong></p>
<ul>
	<li>Koelkast</li>
	<li>Tweepersoonsbed</li>
	<li>Bestek, borden etc.</li>
	<li>Wasbakje</li>
	<li>Waterreservoir</li>
	<li>Kookplaat</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Moment of fame:</strong></p>
<ul>
	<li>Het Perfecte Plaatje RTL 4</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Reserveer nu:</strong></p>
<div class="huurkalender-embed huurkalender-embed-container_booking">
	<iframe src="https://www.huurkalender.nl/vacancy/booking/mr-aqua-6567.html?type=iframe&amp;lang=nl" width="100%" height="650" id="iframe_huurkalender_booking3_6567" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>
</div>
This code:

Code: Select all

<hr id="system-readmore" />
when deleted, deletes both buttons on the page and directly the full article is shown. Which is normal behaviour I found out.

Maybe you know where to find the orange button and change it's text and URL? I'm new to Joomla. Thank you!

Welcome to Joomla forum!

The labels on buttons can be changed via a Language Override:
https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Language_O ... _in_Joomla

The color of the orange button can be changed via CSS in your template.
A lot of templates have a custom.css or user.css file that you can use to override the template's CSS.

Thanks for your quick reply. But what about changing it's URL? Also in the languages override?

No, URLs are dynamic. You cannot change those in the language override.

What would you like to change?

You can change a lot with template overrides: https://docs.joomla.org/How_to_override ... omla!_core

And you can change a lot (like the HTML on a page) with plugins.

I managed to get some sort of URL with Direct boeken within the item from K2: https://www.devolkswagencamper.nl/campers

This is not so neat as the two buttons underneath. The black button with text Meer informatie can stay. But the button Offerte aanvragen should be changed to Direct boeken and with a different URL.

Please do not post requests for paid support in the regular forum boards.

You can post a paid request in: Professional Development Services: viewforum.php?f=177
Or find a service provider: https://community.joomla.org/service-pr ... directory/

Sorry!

I made some steps. Maybe I've found an alternative. I use the plu-gi ReDirecter and I managed to place extra buttons with Direct boeken.

To be continued! :-)
