Hi. The code on your screenshot does not look like the right override of Categories list Module [mod_articles_categories].

You always need to use two files.

default.php - This is the shell calling the list of categories.

default_items.php - This is a list of categories that are called in the shell.

For the output of category custom fields, you should edit default_items.php, by adding the following parts of the code to it:

--

Code: Select all

use Joomla\Component\Fields\Administrator\Helper\FieldsHelper;


<?php $customFields = FieldsHelper::getFields('com_content.categories', $item, true);
            foreach ($customFields as $customField) {
                $customFields[$customField->name] = $customField;
            } ?>
       <span><?php echo $customFields['my-field']->value ?></span>
You can replace <span>...</span> with a tag you need and place this line where you need it in layout.

If you want to rename the module php template you should rename both files (for example to custom.php and custom_items.php ) and also you should to change it in the code, in both files.

Code: Select all

$getFields = FieldsHelper::getFields('com_content.categories', $this->category, true);
$fields = ArrayHelper::pivot($getFields , 'name');
echo $fields['CatIcon’']->rawvalue
;

Hi @erick-b. I think if you provide a solution, then it must be a worker. Otherwise, the forum will turn into a dump of garbage. Your solution does not work for two reasons.

1) It is necessary to connect ArrayHelper

2) $this->category does not work in the module. Instead should be used $item

We are talking about the Categories List Module here [mod_articles_categories]

Code: Select all

use Joomla\Component\Fields\Administrator\Helper\FieldsHelper;
use Joomla\Utilities\ArrayHelper;
Fields = FieldsHelper::getFields('com_content.categories', $this->category, true);
$fields = ArrayHelper::pivot($getFields , 'name');
echo $fields['CatIcon’']->rawvalue
no needs for that stupid foreach when you want only one field, and with pivot you get the fields by name

instead of $this->category use $item , $this->item ... or whatever is already present in your code

It is funny that if someone tries this code and is convinced that it does not work, you will lose a reputation, instead of self-affirmation (which is apparently your goal). ;)

That "stupid foreach" is an universal solution for all cases, if you have more than one field for example.

Did you intend to make typos so that this code does not work for a non -professional? Here people ask for help actually, and not measured skills. If you are not ready to be "his mother", then this forum is not for you (IMO).
