Problem with Category Blog layout on Helix3 template (j4)

Post by poaro » Mon Nov 21, 2022 7:21 am

Hallo,
I have 2 questions so if anyone can help me.
I installed Helix3 and I have a problem with Category Blog layout :
1. How to remove the Image Caption from the display and
2. How to remove the intro text?
I turned off the Intro text in the options, but it is still displayed on the page. I don't want to put the text in the Read more button.

Image Caption
Do you mean the caption of the Intro Image? Can't you just leave the caption blank when editing in the tab Images and Links?

Intro Text
The Helix 3 template v3.0.2 installs template overrides in its html folder. The category blog layout is in the file templates/shaper_helix3/html/com_content/category/blog_item.php. Line 60 displays the intro text and this line can be removed or the echo statement can be commented out like this:

Code: Select all

<?php // echo $this->item->introtext; ?>

Hi. Just advice - Helix 3 is outdated. The updates that it receives simply maintain work in J4 for those who used this template on their sites earlier. If you create a new site, use Helix Ultimate

I agree. It is very easy to replace Helix 3 with Helix Ultimate and Helix Ultimate works very well with Joomla 4.
