    Hi, recommeneded to post here in addition to the Purity III forum.

    After adding in some information in the miscellaneous section of a contact it doesnt show on the front end when using list all contacts in a category menu type. All other information is ok.

    Is there a template overide in place to prevent the misc info displaying?

    I’m using Joomla! 3.6.4, Purity 1.1.7

    You can try with this tweak:
    1) Backup this file first: root/templates/purity_iii/html/com_contact/category/default_items.php
    2) Then open this file and add this line of code to show the misc information:

    <?php echo $item->misc; ?>

    For example, if you want to show it below the contact name/address/etc… you can put in this line:

    Hi, thanks for the advice. Unfortunately that path doesnt exist on my install, the only default_items.php file is held under plugins/system/t3/base/html/com_contact/featured/default_items.php. I did try to amend that but nothing changed.

    The thing is I have had images pulling through to the contacts list before, but a while ago they stopped. Now the user has to go into the individual contact rather than see the image alongside other contacts in their category. At a loss to work out why? Perhaps a update of the template might resolve it?

    Download & unzip the attached file and copy to this directory: root/templates/purity_iii/html/com_contact/category/ (create this folder if it doesn’t exist)

    Tried that, same result. Do I need to change a path elswhere so the template picks up this file instead of the current com_contact one?
