How to use Giver Template with Joomla Article

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
I am trying to create a blog with articles using the core Joomla Category/Articles, with the `Giver` Template. However, the template is interfering badly with the article layout. How can I remove the template's Title Panel (with slope etc) from a core Joomla article that has no menu item? Of course I wish to keep the navigational menu.

The article is also stretching across the entire screen from edge to edge. How to contain it in the template layout? Hoping this is an easy fix.

Thanks,
Geoff

Hi there,

Thanks for your query. Please follow the instruction if you want to use the Helix ultimate default feature.

Grab the blog.php file from this location
templates/shaper_helixultimate/html/com_content/category/blog.php

Replace the file on this file location
templates/dentro/html/com_content/category/blog.php

Hi Toufiq,

I think I'm having the same problem as Geoff. I tried your solution by moving the blog.php file from the "shaper_helixultimate/html/com_content/category" folder to the "/giver/html/com_content/category" folder. It did nothing.

Here's what a sample inner page looks like:

I need to change the pink title background and reduce the height. How/where in the world do I do that? I also want to change the margins for just the article copy/content so it doesn't go all the way to the edge of the screen.

Thanks!

I was wrong for referencing the blog.php file. It was the article/default.php file. Replacing this file didn't really do anything either.

I just need to know where to go to change the default style of inner pages that are not an SP Page Builder page.

Hi

sorry but this answer has already been given above and failed :(

* our template is NOT DENTRO but GIVER

* the template override we are interrested in here is the ARTICLE view not the CATEGORY BLOG view. overriding the \category\blog.php view can't solve the article\default.php view

* even, as footlev already wrote above, if I override the article\default.php view the issue remains


We are several guys sharing the same issue here . Can you help us please ?

thanks

@Pulsar,

I did a workaround. Here's my solution:

1. For ALL internal (non-homepage) SP Pages, the first row is the header background. I accomplished this by creating an SP module that includes a single row with the below settings.

General Tab:
Screen Shot 2019-10-18 at 7.40.22 AM.png

Style Tab:
Screen Shot 2019-10-18 at 7.40.06 AM.png

I then add this module as the first row of every SP Page Builder page. This row on each SP page also has "Fluid Row" and "Remove Gutter" enabled in the row settings.

2. For all other internal pages NOT built with SP Page Builder, I added the following CSS...

/* set background image of header for article pages. Not too tall and not too short. */
.article-header-wrap {
background-image:url('/images/header/fmx-header-background.jpg');
min-height: 200px !important;
max-height: 250px !important;
padding:75px 0;
}
/* style article content under header to be centered on page and no wider than 1140px */
.article-info-wrap {
padding:2em;
max-width: 1140px;
margin: 0 auto;
}

/* Position of header text (title) */
.article-header {
margin-top:2em;
}
.article-details .article-header {
margin:3.5em 0px 0px 0px;
}

I think this is all I did to fix the issue. The Giver template is definitely NOT very intuitive in this way. I think there are other similar issues for other category pages but I should be able to take the same actions to fix.

Hope this helps.

Hi

After many tests I discovered that the article detail layout in http://demo2.joomshaper.com/2019/giver/index.php/blog/10-top-reasons-why-we-must-all-think-about-global-climate-change depended on the ARTICLES themselves !!

As usual I pexpected some menu item setting ar at least a category setting but nope! Each article in the CHARITY category is designed with the embedded article page builder ! (see screenshot)
