Display files via mini front page PRO

Hello team,
I use the module Mini frontpage Pro and provide PDF files that come from the article to open.
At the moment it is so that if you click on the title or the picture you land on the detail page of the article, but this is too cumbersome for my application because I don't want to use a category page.
The category should ONLY run through this module.

I would like the PDF icon to be visible to the visitor and to be able to open it immediately.
It would also be nice if you could remove the link from the title and the image to the data page so that you don't end up there in the first place.
You are welcome to take a look at the page, here is the address:
http://hesse.demo-hmstepweb.de/

Or is there a combination that you can implement using the flying modules, in which case I would still purchase this?

Thanks in advance

Best regards from Hamburg

    Hi, I'm not really sure what you're trying to achieve. Can you explain it in more detail? Can you publish the module somewhere on your website and then tell me what you want to have?

    Sorry, was not entirely understandable,

    But it's very simple ...
    The standard is that minifronpage does not show any links from content.
    I just want the icon (PDF) to be opened as a link on the start page in the module.
    You can see the module on my home page at the top right next to the slider and there I would like the PDF link to be included so that the visitor is not first redirected to the category level.

    Thanks!!

    Am I missing something? I can't see any minifrontpage pro module published on the home page

    Hi, you do that by creating a template override. If you don't know how to create template override you can follow this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiPzIiTWnLM
    Then open the template file depends on what theme you use then find this code :
    echo JHtmlString::truncate(strip_tags($item->introtext), $introtext_truncate);  ?>

    change that with
    echo $item->introtext; ?>

    Hello,

    many thanks for the help,
    Is that the code to remove the link for the image and the heading? I'll look at this again
    I use the theme "carousel"

    In the picture you can see how I meant it, at this point the link to the file should be inserted with an icon (PDF) or as text.

    Hello,
    absolutely upper class, that's exactly how I wanted it!
    I removed the PDF icon because it distorts the layout, it is enough that the infotext is linked.

    I still have one thing, is the link to the picture and the title for the forwarding ur detail page removed?
    In the category setting of Joomla I deactivated everything but the link in the module still remains.
    I don't intend to redirect the visitor to a detail page.
    Now I have created a second module ("carousel") that is used in the category (under "New").
    In the category overview I would like it to be exactly the same, could you write where the template override is located in order to copy it and incorporate it in the second module?

    Great job, thank you very much. That's what I call super service

    best greetings

    Just like that!!!!!! as already written ... great support
    Where can I find the template change?

    By the way, that would also be something for the next upgrade to make it switchable!

    Many thanks and best regards from Hamburg

    Where can I find the template change?
    This the file I have modified : .../modules/mod_minifrontpagepro/tmpl/carousel.php
    You can access it that file by using ftp or you can also access it from the administrator page, from Extensions > Templates > Templates > Yootheme Details and Files
    Choose from the left side, html>mod_minifrontpagepro>carousel.php
    By the way, that would also be something for the next upgrade to make it switchable!
    The modification will stay there when the new update is installed, because the modification is done from the template side (called template override in Joomla)

    Thanks again for the brilliant work!

    I meant the upgrade for you as a supplement to the module itself, so that it is offered for sale by you with this option. But I think since it depends on the Joomla theme, it is hardly feasible.

    Hello,

    two more questions,

    1. You have built in a copy for me to choose from for all themes, where is the difference to the original themes, or are they just a secured template?

    2. In the category overview (under the item "News") I would like to use the theme "infinity!" I would also like to remove the link from the title and the image, unfortunately I do not get the carousel code in the corresponding php file changed.

    The changes refer again to the German side.

    Best regards from Hamburg

    1. You have built in a copy for me to choose from for all themes, where is the difference to the original themes, or are they just a secured template?
    You can compare these two files to see the difference :
    - /modules/mod_minifrontpagepro/tmpl/carousel.php
    - /templates/your_template_name/html/mod_minifrontpagepro/carousel.php

    There's a technique in Joomla to override the module output layout. This technique called template override. You can do that by copying the layout file from the module to the html folder inside the template folder, then modify the code. That's what I did to your website before. This technique is an update-safe technique, because when you update the module later, it will only overwrite files inside the modules folder, and the file inside the template folder will remain unchanged.

    2. In the category overview (under the item "News") I would like to use the theme "infinity!" I would also like to remove the link from the title and the image, unfortunately I do not get the carousel code in the corresponding php file changed.

    I have modified the file /templates/your_template_name/html/mod_minifrontpagepro/infinity-ajax.php and removed the link from title and thumbnail. Please try.

    Oh, I just saw that the content at infinity is now available twice, once the correct one (with a link) and a second the pure text ...
    But I haven't made any changes, just restarted the browser

    Best regards

    Hello,
    yes it still occurs, it affects the German site, the menu item "news", it runs through a category module.

    Best regards

    Have you tried to hard refresh your browser or clearing all browser caches?

    I guess I put myself wrong ...
    I mean the displayed content that exists twice
    see image.
    Only the linked content should remain, as it is on the start page in the carousel template.
