Customize your SEBLOD 3 template

 

You can change the styles used for the articles title and the items area by editing the styles in your AcyMailing template.

You can also modify the way your article is displayed by creating your own template which will be used to render the file.
Please follow those instructions, we don't recommend you to modify the SEBLOD 3 plugin directly otherwise your changes will be overwritten when you update AcyMailing.

Create a file in the the folder media / com_acymailing / plugins (if the folder does not exists, please create it first).
The name of the file should be seblod.php
If this file is available on your server, AcyMailing will use it and won't use the default one.

On this file you can access to the element $varFields that contains all the needed data.

You can display:

  • The article's Id: {id}
  • The article's name: {title}
  • Created date: {created}
  • Published date: {pubdate}
  • The url of your item: {link}
  • The description: {introtext} / {fulltext} / {text}

Using all those variables, you can create your own template, for example:

Show/Hide php code
View source
<div class="acymailing_content">
<h2 class="acymailing_title"><a href="{link}" name="seblod-{id}" target="_blank">{title}</a></h2>
{text}
{onecustomfield}
Views: {hits}
</div>
