Attributes Tabs

Attributes Tabs:

Publishing Tab:

Published: Select the No or Yes radio buttons to set whether a new Contact is published and therefore available for viewing in the Front-end or not.

Ordering: Changing the order of display of the new Contact is not available whilst it is being created. By default the new Contact Item will be positioned at the top of a Category's' listing, within the Contact Manager.

The Category order is controlled in the Category Manager: Contact screen.

Once the Contact Item has been saved for the first time it will be possible to change the order in the drop down order list, for that particular Contact Category.

Access: Identify which User Group level can view this Static Content Item. Select from Public, Registered, or Special. See User Access Levels for further details on these.

Images Tab:

Image: Select an image from the drop down list of images currently available. The images must be stored in the root_joomla/images/stories in order to be available. If no image is required select the - Select an Image - from the drop down list. This is the default setting in Joomla!

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.

Select No to override the Global rule and never show the Print Icon.
