Hello, 
Firstly, thank you for your help.

I have created custom fieds that i used in a Custom Form / Content Types called : "news"
This "News" Content Types create a Joomla Article for each submission.

Then, i have setup a Lists & Search Types for "news" and i have defined :

  • List Template : seb_blog
  • element Template : simplesimon (with personnalisation)

In my Joomla menu i have setup a link pointing to Search & List.

NOW MY PROBLEM IS THE FOLLOWING : 

In SeblodCCK v1 we could assign template to categories or menu elements.
Today version 3.3.2 i have 2 major problems

  1. How can i generate the "Read More" link for my custom Forms Article ? In CCK 1 i was using $cck-> ... (art_link) ...
  2. When the article is showing i can't see my custom fields ... None of them ... How can i template Joomla article to get my custom fields to display ?

THIS IS WHAT I WANT :

  1. Using Menu Lists & Search I display the begining of the content like image, title, introduction...
  2. Click on "read more"
  3. Display the article with all the information description, ...

In version one I used to pass a variable to the url like site.com/article.html?display=true and display the rest of the article using PHP IF value, with version 3 I have no idea how to get this to work.

Thank you very much for your help, you suggestions ! HOPE YOU COULD HELP ME.

Hi Hugo,

In your List and Search, under option number 2 you can define a type of link you want applied on a field. Setting the type will allow you to link to the Site Form or the View (Content). You shouldn't have to pass any variable unless you want to set some value.

So you can add the link on the title or if you want to have a "Read More" field, use a free text field.

Make sure that you have added the fields that you want to show to the Content section of your news Content Type. Even if they are in the custom template, you need to add them to the content type.

Hope this helps,

Randy
