dealing with downloadable files

7 months 3 days ago #73325 by mauriciocgpereira@gmail.com
Hello,
I've got a field that it's supposed to have files users may download.
In the front end it renders in a strange way, as you can see.
Where can I customize this, what's the php file used to render this links to download files?
Thanks

I edited the field admin and introduced the value prefix and sufix and also a opening and ending texts for the field. Yet I noticed that the generated code places the files link after this values.

Please see the generated code in this page: padmakara.brandful.pt/biblioteca/item/119-retiro-outono-2017 and go to where is the link "Download" and you can see that generated code is:

<!-- BOF transcriptionFile block -->
<p class="uk-text-small uk-margin-small-top">
</p>
<div class="fcfile_actions">
<a href="/biblioteca/download/1/119/160" class=" fcfile_downloadFile" title="Click to download this file">Download</a>
</div>
<p></p>
<!-- EOF transcriptionFile block -->

where it should be:

<!-- BOF transcriptionFile block -->
<p class="uk-text-small uk-margin-small-top">
<a href="/biblioteca/download/1/119/160" class=" fcfile_downloadFile" title="Click to download this file">Download</a>
</p>
<!-- EOF transcriptionFile block -->

the div shouldn't appear and also the last <p></p> shouldn't appear

Probably the only way to achieve this is to change the file that handles the downloads.

Hello

if you cannot do it with parameters and CSS
then you can duplicate the layout file of the file field and customize it

Yes, that was the ideia, but how do I know what's the file used to render that particular field?

Thanks

Hello

you mean you have multiple fields of type "file" ?

if you have 3 fields of type file
then let the 2 fields use the default layout and only edit the 3rd field and select the new layout there and save field configuration

Hello,
I think that there's a small confusion here! :-)
When I edit the field where do I see what's the layout file so that I can edit it?
Thanks

Hello

the layout -file- selction is inside

Viewing TAB / File display TAB

Inside the TAB, the first parameter is the layout selection

Read the popup description
and copy the layout file

value_inlineboxes.php
to the same folder or to Joomla template and name it , e.g. as
value_devicemanual.php
or
value_myspecialdisplay.php

and then customize it
