After Russia's seizure of Crimea in 2014, encounters between Russian and NATO forces became more frequent and, in many cases, less safe. One such encounter between Russian aircraft and the USS Donald Cook in 2016 was the "most aggressive" by the Russians in some time — here's how US sailors captured the tense moments. A senior Navy leader recounted the dangerous 2016 encounters in more detail, saying that in the closest pass a Russian Su-24 fighter's wingtip came within 30 feet of the ship — close enough that "if the guy sneezed he might have buried his wing into the Donald Cook,"...

With the opening of a new period of competition between the US and its NATO allies and a resurgent Russia, the North Atlantic is once again vitally important. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The National Defense Strategy issued by the Defense Department in 2018 declared a new era of great power competition with "revisionist powers" — namely, China and Russia.

In Austria, the far-right has emerged from a Russia scandal largely intact and is poised to perform well in snap elections on Sunday just four months after the country's government collapsed.  The 2015 migrant crisis and deep anti-immigrant sentiment have empowered far-right parties across Europe. In Austria, the wave of nationalism brought the far-right into a governing coalition with the conservatives in 2017.  The coalition between the conservative party and the far-right cemented former Chancellor Sebastian Kurz's popularity and the far right's place in mainstream Austrian politics, while deepening polarization. Like populist parties across Europe, Austria's far-right is characterized by its opposition to...

A YouTuber is being criticized for saying her trip to Greece was "not fun." Haley Pham, who has 2 million subscribers, recently uploaded a vlog about her trip to Italy and Greece.

Content Layouts
PDF Print E-mail

Joomla! provides plenty of flexibility when displaying your Web content. Whether you are using Joomla! for a blog site, news or a Web site for a company, you'll find one or more content styles to showcase your information. You can also change the style of content dynamically depending on your preferences. Joomla! calls how a page is laid out a layout. Use the guide below to understand which layouts are available and how you might use them.

Content

Joomla! makes it extremely easy to add and display content. All content is placed where your mainbody tag in your template is located. There are three main types of layouts available in Joomla! and all of them can be customised via parameters. The display and parameters are set in the Menu Item used to display the content your working on. You create these layouts by creating a Menu Item and choosing how you want the content to display.

Blog Layout

Blog layout will show a listing of all Articles of the selected blog type (Section or Category) in the mainbody position of your template. It will give you the standard title, and Intro of each Article in that particular Category and/or Section. You can customise this layout via the use of the Preferences and Parameters, (See Article Parameters) this is done from the Menu not the Section Manager!

Blog Archive Layout

A Blog Archive layout will give you a similar output of Articles as the normal Blog Display but will add, at the top, two drop down lists for month and year plus a search button to allow Users to search for all Archived Articles from a specific month and year.

List Layout

Table layout will simply give you a tabular list of all the titles in that particular Section or Category. No Intro text will be displayed just the titles. You can set how many titles will be displayed in this table by Parameters. The table layout will also provide a filter Section so that Users can reorder, filter, and set how many titles are listed on a single page (up to 50)

Wrapper

Wrappers allow you to place stand alone applications and Third Party Web sites inside your Joomla! site. The content within a Wrapper appears within the primary content area defined by the "mainbody" tag and allows you to display their content as a part of your own site. A Wrapper will place an IFRAME into the content Section of your Web site and wrap your standard template navigation around it so it appears in the same way an Article would.

Content Parameters

The parameters for each layout type can be found on the right hand side of the editor boxes in the Menu Item configuration screen. The parameters available depend largely on what kind of layout you are configuring.

As with previous releases, Joomla! provides a unified and easy-to-use framework for delivering content for Web sites of all kinds. To support the changing nature of the Internet and emerging Web technologies, Joomla! required substantial restructuring of its core functionality and we also used this effort to simplify many challenges within the current user interface. Joomla! 1.5 has many new features.
