.x Tutorial on How to hide article details everywhere on your website. That means whenever you link to an article from the menu whether it be a article blog, category blog or single article, you will not see any of the article details show. The Article details that are displayed by default are the category name, published date, article author and number of hits. You can choose to hide all these article details using the Article Details Global Settings. Below I will show you how to easily hide all these Article Details.
Below is a screenshot of my Article After I made the below changes:
Overview of how to hide Article Details on All Pages:
- Go to
- Access the Global Setting Options for Article Details
- Hide all the Article Details
1. Go to your Article Manager
Article Manager manages all your articles on your website. You can create, modify, and delete articles.
- Login to your 2.5 Administrator Backend
- Click on ‘Content’, ‘Article Manager‘
2. Access the Global Setting Options for Article Details
You can change all Joomla 2.5 Global settings of Articles easily by accessing the Article Details Global Settings. All article settings that are set to ‘Global’ will change to whatever is set in these Article Details Global Settings. If you manually override an Article setting to another value other than ‘Global’, it cannot be managed using the Article Details Global Settings.
- In the ‘Article Manager: Articles’ – Click on ‘Options‘
3. Hide all the Article Details
If the Article details are assigned a value of ‘Global’ these values can be mass managed via the Article Details Global Settings which is where we are right now. You can choose to hide or show any article details.
- Click on the ‘Articles’ tab
- In the Article Manager Options, Set the following values:
- Show Category = Hide
- Show Publish Date = Hide
- Show Author = Hide
- Show Hits = Hide
- Click on ‘Save & Close’
Now you can refresh your Joomla 2.5 website and open up an article anywhere on your site. You will see that the publish date, author, number of hits, and category name are now hidden. If they are showing, you should check theor Category Manager from where the article is displayed from and see if any of the article settings are set to anything but Global. If they are set to ‘Show’, change it back to ‘Global’.
Hope that helps you,
