Custom items

  Info

This feature is available only in Pro version.


Custom items provide a convenient way to add custom content to a widget without using content from any specific Joomla component. Custom items are assigned to a widget by group, therefore all custom items must belong to a group.

To create a widget with custom content:

  1. Go to the extension Dashboard and click on "Groups", then click on "New".

  2. Enter a name for this group and click on "Save & Close".

  3. On the next step you must create some items in this group. Go to the extension Dashboard and click on "Custom Items", then click on "New".

    A custom item has the following data:

    Title
    The title for this item (required).
    Image
    An optional image. This image will be displayed in the widget.
    Title/Image URL
    An optional url for the item title and image.
    Category
    An optional category name. The category will be used in the wall filters.
    Category URL
    An optional category url.
    Tags
    Optional tag names. Tags will be used in the wall filters.
    Author
    An optional author name.
    Author URL
    An optional author url.
    Description
    Optional text that will be displayed in the widget as item introtext. HTML is allowed.
  4. Assign the custom item to a group and click on "Save & Close".

  5. Repeat the process to create as many items as you want.

  6. Finally, assign the group to a widget. You must select Custom Items as widget source and then select the group in the field Data source > Group.
