    I’m having a problem that i don’t know how to solve… Some of my Categories have long names and i can’t reduce them, so it shows the USER/AUTHOR | Category name | Data in 2 lines instead of 1. What do you suggest me to do?

    Can i change the date format to try to reduce the extension of the line?

    Thank you so much

    You’re right, the space will be not enough to show long name. You can change the font of info displaying in that part: author name / category title / data.

    But it’s better if you change the date format. To do this, you can download attached file > unzip and copy it to this directory: [root]/templates/ja_focus/html/layouts/joomla/content/info_block/

    Open the file ‘create_date.php’ you just copied, you will see that it’s using DATE_FORMAT_LC3 format.

    The date format is declared here: [root]/language/en-GB/en-GB.ini

    You can look for this line: DATE_FORMAT_LC3="d F Y"

    and change to the desired format.

    You can view the complete list of PHP date formats here:

    My above suggestion is applied to English, if you want to apply for Portuguese (pt-PT), you need to edit the associated language file of template in portuguese:


    I edited this line: DATE_FORMAT_LC3="d.m.Y" . It’s showing fine now, kindly check.
