Custom Pages in Cassiopeia?

Post by MAD King » Thu Jun 30, 2022 10:26 pm

Hello,

I probably have too much Joomla 3 in my head, but I cannot figure out how to do a custom footer in Cassiopeia.
Any help here?

Joomla 4.1.5

Is your question about creating a custom HTML module and assign it to Cassiopeia's Footer position?

Probably. I just want to move the copyright note to the bottom of the footer in one line, under the modules.
Right now, it shows up in the module as a text with line breaks.

Re: Restyling the footer module

There are a couple of ways to do this. This is, perhaps, the easiest:

Create a custom CSS file and add the following lines to the end of it:

Code: Select all

.footer .footer1, .footer .footer2 {
	display: inline;
	padding-right:  10px;
}
“If you think I’m wrong then say, ‘I think you’re wrong.’ If you say ‘You’re wrong!’, how do you know?”

I already have three modules on the footer which I need for other things.
I just want the copyright line blow these three modules and not assigned to another module.

Cassiopeia has 'Debug' Position at the very bottom.

I thought about that, but then I thought it is for debug.

How often do you turn debug on? haha
It's a position that is hardly ever used. Might as well put a custom module (with your copyright there.

... or you could create a language override.

Many ways to address this. I, personally, wouldn't assign the module to the Debug template position. That position may be rarely used but, if it's needed, it's better to not complicate matters by using it unnecessarily. The Footer template position is where "footer" modules should be assigned. ;)

Set "col-12" as module class suffix.

I can't see how this makes a difference, @Per. Can you please provide screenshots of before and after you change the module class?

When you set the module full width, it should break down on the next line.

Does not work on mobile.
Only large screens.

Is there already a tutorial on how to add a new module position to Cassiopeia?
I think I will just add one.

Same as any other template. Add a jdoc statement.

https://docs.joomla.org/Jdoc_statements#Module


Have you tried to add "col-sm-12" for small screen?

A custom module can be added to the module positions at the bottom of the screen easy enough.

To "locate" it at the very bottom, change the "ordering" of the modules in that module position, thus stacking the module below all the others in the same position.

The obvious item here is that more than one module can be applied to the same module position, then "ordered" to arrange how they appear.

I doubt you should create a new module position. See the following diagram for a list of positions:

You need to take care with nesting of divs!
