feature request: "More" link on upper right corner

feature request: "More" link on upper right corner

Postby baijianpeng » Tue Jan 08, 2013 1:34 pm

At first let me explain: when I say "More" link, I mean the "more article in the same category link", not the "read more link for each single article".

The current design of this module show the "More" link at the end of linked articles, just as another linked article title, but only "More ..." shown.

I would like to use another layout : move this "more" link to the upper right corner, in the same line as the module title, but float right.

See demo:

I had marked the "more" link with red arrow on above images.

Maybe some user still love the bottom position. Ok, could you please just add a new option to show the "More" link on the upper right corner? You know, this is very popular layout on news portal websites in China. We are familiar and feel comfortable with this design.

Thanks.

Hi,

I think that's a nice option for the module template, so I have included it in the current version. Please feel free to download and install it.

Regards!

I just give it a quick test, it seems that when choose to show "More" link at top, it will appear in the line where "Category Name" shown.

However, my expectation is: this "More" link will appear in the same line as the "Module Title", not the category name. Because when I use this module , I always choose to hide the category name, but use "module title" to show the category name - the benefit is, it looks better, since there is often a line under the module title to separeate it from module content.

So, if you love the layout of "show this link beside the category name", then I suggest to add another new option to "show it beside the module title".

Thanks.

I'm affraid we can't place the link there because the module title is rendered by the main template, not by the module's.

I suggest you try to move it there using CSS.

Yes, I also know that it is very difficult .

Well, I will try to use CSS. Since you added new option to place it under the module title, then, it will be easier to calculate the top position offset.

Thanks.

BTW, did you noticed that it is very difficult to login to your forum? Every time I come here, I need to login twice. Sometimes after I press the "Submit" button, your forum ask me to login again, and again! Very annoying! I suggest you convert your forum from phpbb to kunena, the latter will work with your Joomla well.
