Parameters:

Page Class Suffix: This field can contain a suffix that is to be applied to the CSS classes of this page. This allows individual page styling with relative ease. For example, if the suffix .bl (short for Blog) is entered here, all CSS code elements in this page will have .bl added to them. h2 becomes h2.bl. Separate entries in the CSS file of the template would then be applied as entered.

Back Button: Set whether there is a Back navigation button inserted at the base of the target page being displayed. Options are Use Global (the setting made for the whole site in the Global Configuration), Hide, or Show. The Global site settings are overridden by these individual page settings.

Page Title: Select Show or Hide to set whether the Page Title text entered above will appear at the top of their respective target page displayed in the Front-end of the web site.

Linked Titles: The Global Configuration ->Content Tab screen has a setting within it that sets a Global rule with regard to whether Content Item titles are linkable, or not. It may well be that the Global rule is No. However, there may be occasions when it would be useful and/or essential that a title is linked. It is possible to do this using this feature which can override the Global rule and allow Items on the target page display to be displayed with linkable titles. The options available are Use Global, Yes, and No.  Select Use Global to follow the Global rule for the web site. Select No to always use standard format text titles. This function will only work when the Item Titles field above is set to Show.

Intro Text: Select Show or Hide to set whether the Intro Text is displayed above the Main Text after the User clicks the Read More... link on the Front Page and therefore views the full Content Item. This setting will have no effect if no Main Text has been entered and therefore the full Content Item has been displayed on the Front Page.

Section Name: Select Show or Hide to set whether the Section Name is displayed or not. The Section Name is the name given to the Section when it was created in the Section Manager, and any changes needed are made there.;

Section Name Linkable: It is possible to make the Section Name text appear as a link to the actual Section page and therefore display a list of all the Categories within that Section.Category. This function will only work if the Section Name is set to Show in the previous field. Select Yes or No (default) to set whether this function is activated.

Category Name: Select Show or Hide to set whether the name of the Category, the Content Item belongs to, is displayed beneath the Content Item name.

Category Name Linkable: It is possible to make the Category Name text appear as a link to the actual Category page and therefore display all Content Items within that Category. This function will only work if the Category Name is set to Show in the previous field. Select Yes or No (default) to set whether this function is activated.

Item Rating: Use this feature to set whether the Item Rating images are displayed in Content Items on the target page display. Select Use Global to follow the Global rule for the web site. Select Yes to override the Global rule and always make the Item Rating appear. Select No to override the Global rule and never show the Item Rating. This feature does not control the function of enabling rating.

Author Names: Use this feature to set whether the name of a Content Item's Author is displayed in the Content Item on the target page display. Select Use Global to follow the Global rule for the web site. Select Yes to override the Global rule and always make the Author Name appear. Select No to override the Global rule and never show the Author Name.

Created Date and Time: Use this feature to set whether the the date and time that this Content Item was created are displayed in the Content Item on the target page display. Select Use Global to follow the Global rule for the web site. Select Yes to override the Global rule and always make the Created Date and Time appear. Select No to override the Global rule and never show the Created Date and Time.

Modified Date and Time: Use this feature to set whether the the date and time that this Content Item was last modified are displayed in the Content Item on the target page display. Select Use Global to follow the Global rule for the web site. Select Yes to override the Global rule and always make the Modified Date and Time appear. Select No to override the Global rule and never show the Modified Date and Time.

PDF Icon: Use this feature to set whether the PDF icon is displayed in Content Items on the target page display. The PDF Icon (sometimes also just represented in plain text) allow the download of the Content Item as a PDF file. Select Use Global to follow the Global rule for the web site. Select Yes to override the Global rule and always make the PDF Icon appear. Select No to override the Global rule and never show the PDF Icon.

Print Icon: Use this feature to set whether the Print icon is displayed in Content Items on the target page display. The Print Icon causes a new browser window to open with the basic text content of the Content Item displayed without any of the web site graphics or design showing. This allows a User to conveniently print the Item. Select Use Global to follow the Global rule for the web site. Select Yes to override the Global rule and always make the Print Icon appear. Select No to override the Global rule and never show the Print Icon.

E-mail Icon: Use this feature to set whether the E-mail Icon is displayed in Content Items on the target page display.

Select Use Global to follow the Global rule for the web site. Select Yes to override the Global rule and always make the E-mail Icon appear. Select No to override the Global rule and never show the E-mail Icon.

note711_small NOTE: Changes made to the Parameters within this Menu Item, only affect this instance of the Blog - Content Category Menu Item display and does not alter the Global rules that may be set for them within the Global Configuration.

Key Reference: This is the unique reference key that can be used to identify a particular document. The Key Reference is searched for by the "option=com_content&task=findkey&pop=1&keyref=key.reference.name" function in the joomla_root/admin/com_content content.php file.

In addition, the key reference is used to link directly with the Joomla! Core Help Screen information. It will either open the files saved locally in the Component com_help whilst offline or link to a web site. By default this is http://help.joomla.org however this is editable in the Global Configuration.

When the Help icon in the top right hand corner of most Administrator screens is clicked, a corresponding reference attached to that icon calls the correct page either locally or remotely.

DocBook Type: This is a feature under development and should not be used on a production web site.
