Post by toonytoony2004 » Fri Jun 14, 2019 11:42 pm

On joomla website, if creating a new menu as a Category blog menu, choose to have the article show on that page for 9 articles are divided into 3 rows, 3 columns and display the section of the article topic as well.

The point is that when the topic is not equal Will make the blocks unequal, not beautiful at all

How to limit the length of the article topic to be displayed.

Thank you

The title display is facilitated in the file blog_style_default_item_title.php located in the directory \layouts\joomla\content. You could override the code in this file.

To know about to override a file, please review the following documents: Another way could be using the Layout override as documented at https://docs.joomla.org/Layout_Overrides_in_Joomla.

Note:
Your template may already have override file for the above mentioned file.

You could also explore the possibility of creating and using an alternate menu item for the blog.
