Article show icons

Post by GillianBPP » Wed Oct 13, 2021 1:59 pm

In the 'help' for articles it says that there should be the following between 'Navigation' and 'Hits' under 'Options' in the Article Options tab:

Show Icons
Show Print
Show Email
Show Voting

Where are they?

Is this a bug that needs reporting to Github?

TIA

Confirmed, the Article Help refers to print/email icons, but no setting under the Article Options tab. My suspicion is that those particular items were removed in J4.0.

This is the only documentation I can find: https://docs.joomla.org/Article_email_a ... n_settings.

I think the help article (within the CMS) is incorrect concerning the print/vote/email icons in this instance (concerning Joomla 4 anyway). The voting/print/mail icons would appear to still be available in Joomla 3.10.

Maybe the docs need to be updated to flag these as a "joomla 3.x" feature only.

Ok. What a strange thing to do, removing those options. So the only way to print or email an article in J4 and not its surrounding modules is to manually add the appropriate button to each article or add one to an article or category template override? I use the print button for a restaurant's food menu, for example. Visitors don't want to print all the decorative stuff as well.
