Random ordering + word wrap

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Hi,

First I want to say thank you for a brilliant module!

I installed CC and got it running in 5 minutes, and it works fine except for 1 thing: I'm using it to show random articles on my frontpage and some articles have very long titles (~50 chars and longer). Shorter titles show up nicely - words are being wrapped and appear in 2 lines, but these longer ones (should be 3-4 rows of text when wrapped or smth) fail to wrap and ruin the grid. I use 3-thumbs-in-a-row scheme, so when this happens, 3rd image jumps down to the next row below.

Additionally, when I switch on random ordering for articles, right coumn jumps down occasionally. Sometimes no images show up or 1-2 show but the 3rd one in missing. When I switch to any other ordering - most read, latest etc. it works like a charm! What could be the problem here?

I'm on Joomla 1.5.20, keepitsimple theme (www.joomlaxe.com/template/54-clean-and-simple-jx-keepitsimple.html) with no SEO addons.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Paul

Try increasing the margin bottom value in the module parameters. The module will struggle to include all the text in the available space, so it spills out to the right. With more vertical room, the title should continue to wrap...

Hi again!

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work. I'm not a CSS guru, but I've tried adding bottom margin to every single tag :laugh: but to no avail... Right column also keeps dropping down occasionally.

P.S. Just found out recently that my selection of sections and categories to show articles from (set in backend) is also being ignored when in random mode...

Any ideas?

Set the bottom margin value in the module parameters! You don't need to edit your CSS.

It's either I'm blind or it has only thumbnail bottom margin, and no I 've tried that and no effect - titles don't wrap properly.

I looks fine at the moment. I can't see any title break-out.

BYW, it may be beneficial to post the url here, then the others may also be able to help you. We don't need your login details, just the main url.

I would love to... but unfortunately I'm not allowed to do it - the website is still in development stage and I have a non-disclosure clause in my contract.

P.S. I've attached a screenshot of the issue, may be it's gonna help...

Hi there,

Prob best for you to create a ticket with the url details. (Seth is off for the day now)

That way we can all help. Hard to say from the photo but looks like the link is display:block but Ill know more when I can look at it directly.

Have you tried to switch ordering modes? I've set it to Most Recent First to avoid the bug - all three latest titles are short and are displayed correctly. I've just changed it back to Random + you need to press Ctrl+F5 several times to wait until a long title shows up. Can you please confirm that these titles are being output correctly:

Title: I installed with my own language, but the Back-end is still in English
Title: What is the purpose of the collation selection in the installation screen?

Hey there,

There is surely an issue with long titles and there is a fix for this.

I've updated the code for the module and we will release an update for Captify Content later today.

You can make the changes manually by editing the following file

/modules/mod_captifyContent/tmpl/default.php

replace the following line of code (there are 3 instances in the file)

<div class="ccItem" style="margin-right:<?php echo $imgRightMargin ?>; margin-bottom:<?php echo $bottomMargin ?>px;">

with this

<div class="ccItem" style="width:<?php echo $image_width ?>px;margin-right:<?php echo $imgRightMargin ?>; margin-bottom:<?php echo $bottomMargin ?>px;">

That should fix the layout for you.

Cheers,
Jason.

P.S. Did you check on the right column and randomizer issues?
