Articles overview Joomla 3 and 4

Post by Lumiga » Tue Sep 21, 2021 9:20 am

Hi Joomla 4 users,

In Joomla 4 I can see much less articles in the overview and it is much more unclear to find an article because the title is very narrow.

Does anyone know how to improve this so that the titles have more space?

See screenshot from Joomla 4 compare to Joomla 3

Kind regards,
Lumiga

If you don't use Joomla's multilingual functionality then you can switch that off and the Association + Language columns will be gone.

You can switch off the Votes + Ratings column: System > Plugins > search the "Content - Vote" plugin and switch it off.
and the Hits column: Articles > [Options] > Articles tab > "Record Hits" set to "No".

The wide table problem has been the subject of discussion among core developers but without an agreed solution. I adopted a left-right scroll approach for my own purposes and wrote it up here:

If you want to use something like for com_content you will need to use a template override.
