Can not HIDE the word "Subcategories"

Post by nice2odie » Sun Dec 15, 2013 5:34 am

In Global Configuration, I have set the "Display Subcategories" to HIDE but yet it STILL DISPLAYS.

This text screen capture is one example:

Subcategories
  • Post Production
    Videography
Both "Post Production" and "Videography" are categories, which is fine. But I do NOT want the word "Subcategories" showing. In Global Configuration, I have this set to HIDE everywhere I've looked. I must have missed one ..where?

Thank you.

Check the same Option on the Menu Item.

I'm now attached TWO screenshots to illustrate the issue. I can fix this by editing the en-GB.ini file and clearing out the text from between the quote marks BUT I do NOT want to have to do that because the Global Configuration has an option to control that ...but the templates are NOT respecting that. So, the bug that was in prior versions (3.02, and 2.50) is back.

The first shot shows the word "Subcategories" on the web page. That's the word I do NOT want displayed.

This screen shot shows the Global Configuration -> Article Component -> Category tab

To temporally fix this, I needed to edit the file in language\en-GB\en-GB.ini in this line:
JGLOBAL_SUBCATEGORIES="Subcategories"

I change that to
JGLOBAL_SUBCATEGORIES=""

Then that words disappears from the web page.

I thought that was supposed to happen with that option switch to HIDE it.

Yes it will turn off that heading, but it depends on if the Menu Item is set to use Global Options or set directly in the Menu Item. So check the Menu item first.
