Categories Module

The Categories module allows you to display your available blog categories in a module position.

The module can be installed on your site by using the default Joomla! installer (Extensions >> Install/Uninstall >> Browse >> select the module >> "Upload File and Install") and can be configured from the Module Manager.

The configurable parameters are:

  • Module Class Suffix : A suffix to be applied to the CSS class of the Module. This allows for individual Module styling;
  • Active Item Class : Assigns a custom CSS class to the category that is currently being viewed.
  • Select Categories : (Leave empty to show all) Select which categories to display;
  • Ordering : Default/Title/Parent Title/Author's Username;
  • Ordering Direction : This is the ordering direction (ascending or descending);
  • Open links in : Same page/New page - this option will determine how the categories will be opened (on the same page or in a new browser window).
  • Show Articles Count : Set to Yes to display the number of articles found in each category.
  • ItemId : Enter a custom Itemid.
