Edit gallery module (can not find were to)

Post by candasys » Tue Apr 16, 2019 2:37 pm

On the site we inherited there is a gallery page created in a Module. I've found the module but cannot find where to edit the images with the Module. I can see the in page builder but cannot edit there.

I've gone to Modules:mod_widgekit -> click on the gallery widget which hold the images and still cannot find anywhere to edit the images..

I can set everything for style sheet to the number of row and cols to use but can not edit the images.

I moan about wordpress, but Joomla turning out to be far more frustrating >:(

Logically, modules would be in the Module Manager......???

If it is a widgetkit module it can only be edited in the component.

This is what I see for a gallery widgetkit.
This is a custom gallery, I am guessing now, but when the widgetkit was created "use joomla" was selected and not custom. If that is the case then the content can be edited in the relevant joomla articles.

Unfortunately not. if you edit as an article you get the top text then a blank space where the widgetkit module content should be. :(
