Display full article text in RAXO All-mode PRO

Post by rakesh » Apr 29, 2016 4:41 am

Hi,

My article is using a Read More bar inside the Joomla Article.

I''m loading the articles with the module RAXO_All-mode_PRO_J3.x_v1.4

But I need to display the FULL text of each article.

I believe there is no setting for this.
It only displays the intro text.

Please help.

If your articles are not divided by pagebreak into intro text and article body, the module can display all article text.
If there is the division, the module will show only intro text.

Hello

I think that we should have an option to display all text in module, both intro and full text.
There are many cases when we need to have intro text, so Joomla intro text divider is used in all articles.
With this option your module would be more versatile.

I agree with this, therefore, in our modules, there are very wide possibilities for working with article intro text.
an option to display all text in module, both intro and full text.
Please give an example (which is widely used) where you need to show the entire text of the article in the module. And where is not enough introtext?

Client wants it that way :)

They want to use both intro text option in all news articles and to have few raxo modules on a top to show only one item as big picture with text. There are plenty of space to accommodate all text from these specific articles.

So if I want to use raxo module for that I would need to use article without read more option.
I could use some other module for that but I like to reuse same module is possible,
to reduce server load and loading extra css files.

Anyway I solved my issue by creating custom raxo template based on default one by adding php code to display full text if there is any + some other styling options.

This would be much easier if there was an option (like in many other 3rd party modules) to show full text as well.

What I've learned in my 20 yrs of programming:
If you don't have a need for some feature don't assume that someone else wouldn't like or need to have that as feature.

That is why, when it comes to adding a new option, I always ask you to give an example and share a specific case of how it will be applied.
on a top to show only one item as big picture with text.
If you just need to display a big image with text in the top area of the site, then:
- there is no need to create an article for this;
- there is no need for the functionality of the news module;
Just use the Custom HTML module with this image and text and place it to the TOP area of the site.
I think this will solve the problem described, and I am a supporter of simple solutions.

I know how to use html and custom modules, most of content fillers doesn't.
Your solution is OK but for static website only, not for news websites where articles are changed daily by editors without backend access.

I used raxo module in several positions in several display variations in one page. In order to move news around, content editors would need backend access and fiddle with modules. In order to prevent that and spare them of messing with modules I used joomla tag systems named as module positions.
And I've set each raxo module to display content based on category or tag. So when editors needs to move that particular news item out from top position module into middle module or bottom module or wherever they want they just need to edit article and change tags and article will be shown in other raxo module.
So you see, custom HTML suggestion doesn't help in this solution.

Like I said I managed to get what I needed by custom coding module template override, I just wished that raxo had that simple to implement setting.

That's why I also pointed out that if you think that "this feature is not needed" doesn't mean that someone else might not need it.

I gave constructive critic with explanation why I needed it, and I'm not the only one who asked for it.
Now I rest my case :)

Best
Regards

In the situation you are describing now, I agree that custom HTML module won't work.

But we are talking about a different thing - about displaying full article text in the news module.
That's why I also pointed out that if you think that "this feature is not needed" doesn't mean that someone else might not need it.
I didn't say this feature is not needed. I'm trying to find out which commonly used situation requires this feature. For this purpose I'm asking for an example that will explain to me why the current module functionality doesn't solve this task.

I still don't understand you situation and why you need full article text here?
Especially knowing this:

Because in this case intro text is required on all news articles because in few places these are shown as blog layout.
So without module modification in order to display full article in raxo module we would need to remove read more and in that case this article would stick out in blog layout because of its size. One of dirty solutions would be to duplicate article but this would add clutter in admin and mess with facebook likes, shares or page hits.
