Andrea created the topic: K2 subtemplate not applying correct classes
Hi, i recently created a new k2 subtemplate in order to test a new way of showing item in category lists, copying the folder of another templates in "/public_html/templates/MYTEMPLATE/html/com_k2/templates".
Then, in category.php, i changed the itemContainer and itemContainerLast to itemContainernew and itemContainerLastnew, but after assigning the new template to the test category i created (this one: verticalife.it/it/prova-category-italia-new ) the category still uses the "default" itemContainer.
What i'm getting wrong?

Thank you for your help, best regards

Andrea

The paths are probably wrong.

You should use something like:

/public_html/templates/MYTEMPLATE/html/com_k2/default/
/public_html/templates/MYTEMPLATE/html/com_k2/new/

This is what i got (image below): all the custom templates we already use for K2 are stored here and work as expected...
The subtemplate i'm willing to work on is "category-italia-new".
Thanks in advance for your kind support, best regards

1) You should move all subfolders of /templates/MYTEMPLATE/html/com_k2/templates/ into /templates/MYTEMPLATE/html/com_k2/ to be future-proof.

2) Make sure the category template setting is not getting over-written by a menu.

Hi Fotis,

thanks, i've managed to fix that problem, however now the items in the category don't show the readmore div (catItemReadMore), even though the original subtemplate i copied and used for these new modifications does (see this page: verticalife.it/it/viaggi-tour-grecia-outdoor ).
Any ideas?
TY

Andrea

Check your category settings ;)

The new template may "carry" the view check and if that check is set to off, you won't see the "readmore" link as you said.

Hi Fotis,

i've manually set the category parameters to look just like the one i copied it from, hence the readmore in "Item view option in category listing" is enabled, but to no avail.
I'm kinda confused atm...

The display of that element is controlled by either the category, item or menu options. Also check if the category these items belong to inherit their parameters from another category. In that case, the parameters from the 2nd category would prevail.

Hi Fotis,

thanks for your reply.
As stated before, the category the items belong to doesn't inherit its parameters from another one. From the menu item options, i can only select which Joomla! template should be used, not K2 subtemplate. I selected the one we're using for our website anyway.

I'm referring to K2 menu items. You can select a K2 sub-template there.

I'm NOT referring to Joomla template assignment, that's a different thing.

In any case, it's a matter of parameter inheritance.
