TOPIC: Why extra fields like width2, width4 ?

Why extra fields like width2, width4 ? 14 Oct 2013 09:19 #3157

I have a generally question.

Why where are thoose extra fields like width2, width4 ? If i don't use them the pictures in the category view are allways small.

On the other hand i can set the image size in the category settings "Layout grid" (small, large...). But this settings don't have any effect! Are they overridden by the extra fields?

So i ask if i have a bug and generally, would it not be better to set the size in the category view by category settings (instead of extra fields)?

The best way is to install demo page and find the difference in the joomla setup.

Hmm, i did. But i really don't see the sense.

In one subcategory i set "Inherit parameter options from category" to "none". Now the pictures (items) assigned to this subcategory are very small in the category view.

In items extra field still is width2 or width4. And the "image size" parameters are all at "large". But the picture in the category view ist still small.

At least k2 seems to be a thing which seems very oversized here. The template is for free and it looks nice, but sometimes i wish to pay a fee for some words about the sense of width2 and width4.

Did you have realised a website with vihrea, sanderlt? I did it here:

www.andreasjell.de/portfolio

It looks nice but that k2 stuff is not really good: For example if i want a gallery in the artice i must upload the images complete (!) as zip and after that they are unsorted.

By the way you can make a small size using any other width (width1 fr example).
