Joomla 1.7 – How to remove the words “Book!”, “Shop!”, and “Contribute!”

Joomla 1.7 - Banner Modules Contribute! Books! Shop!
Joomla 1.7 - How to Remove Banner Word Contribute! Books! Shop!

I was searching for about 30 minutes how to remove the words  “Book!”, “Shop!”, and “Contribute!” from the module positions – position-9, position-10, position-11 in the Joomla 1.7 Beez_20 Template.  These 3 footer module positions hold the banner module which respectively display “Book!”, “Shop!”, and “Contribute!”. Then I realized, why try to fix it when you can create a new one just as easily.

So below I will show you how to create a new banner module which remove the words “Contribute!”, “Books!”, and “Shop!”.  For example, I want to remove the word “Books!”.

Overview of what needs to be done:

1.  New Banner Module in Module Manager

You can copy all the Banner Module information from the old Books Banner Module or configure the module to show your customized banners.

  • Login to your Joomla 1.7 Administrator backend
  • Click on ‘Extensions’, ‘Module Manager”
  • Click on ‘New’, ‘Banners’
  • Fill out the values below:
          • Title = Books!
          • Show Title = Hide
          • Position = position-10
          • Status = Published
          • Access = Public
          • Target = Open in new window
          • Count = 1
          • Client = Bookstore
  • Menu Assignment – On all pages
  • Click on ‘Save & Close’

2.  Unpublish old Books! Banner Module in Module Manager

If you chose to refresh your site now, you will see 2 Banner Modules activated in position-10.  So you will need to deactivate the original “Books!” banner module.

  • Click on ‘Extensions‘, Module Manager
  • Use checkbox to select old Banner Module.
  • Click on the button at the top “Unpublish”

3.  Rinse & Repeat

  • Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the other 2 banner modules.
  • The Modules and Words are linked to the modules in the Module Manager.  For example:
    • Words = Banner Module Name
      • Books! = Bookstore
      • Contribute! = Contribute
      • Store! = Store

4.  Test

Now refresh your Joomla 1.7 website.  The word “Books!” should no longer be there.  Your website will look like the screenshot below:
