Article name, author, publish date visible on screen

Post by clemenslinders » Mon Sep 20, 2021 7:09 am

Hi,

I am new to Joomla and I wish to use Joomla to create a regular website.

I simply want some text on the Home page (in this case: website is under construction).

Only by making it a special article I could get is to show on the home page.

However, it now also shows article name, Author and publish date.
How can I make this disapear?

In the article under options there were a bunch of options that were set to show, I changed this to hidden (but this made no difference).

I installed Joomla 4 (during installation I could choose between 2.5 and 4.0, no 3.5??).

It installed the CassioPeia template (to which I made almost no changes).
I created an article, category (linked these two), I removed show where you are. And in the article I set u bunch of show options to hidden.

Image

I hope someone can help me.

PS: I would also like the Word: HOME to be removed??



Kind regards,



Clemens Linders

Welcome to the Joomla forum!

Go to System - Global Configuration - Site and click 'Site Offline', then modify the wording in the field 'Custom Message' and upload an optional image, then Save & Close. That is the simplest way to advise visitors that the website is under construction.

While your site is under construction, set it as off-line in Global Configuration.

An easier way what you want to achieve is to have the site Offline.

Log into the back-end, go to the screen "Global Configuration" (System => Setup > Global Configuration) and in the tab Site, for the option "Site Offline" choose the value Yes. If need be, you could use a customized text message and and image to go in the Home page.

When the site is set offline, only authorized personnel can login and see the site.

Once your is site for others, you could set this option to Off and the site would show up.

Thanks for letting me know how to officially set my site to under construction.


But still if I want to continue than I do not want Article name, author and publish to appear on screen.

So my question remains, how to make this go away.



Kind regards,

You set the Options in the Menu Item, not in the article.
