Links A .. E fields

Links A .. E fields

The contact links A through E are treated in a special way, thanks to the fact that one can specify a name that can be used as a replacement for the value. Those names can be set in the Contacts global configurations (Contact tab, under Contact links) and for each Contact (in the Display tab).

Here is how the fields behave, depending on the values set for the Link Name and the extension's label.
Link Value: https://www.joomla.org

Pre-fields options

Pre-fields options

Pre-fields are elements that show before a field. These can be a label or an icon.

Setting the All pre-fields value can help aligning the fields on the contact cards when labels or icons are shown. Here are behaviors you can expect to see from the values you set in the extension.

The following examples show the name, country and website fields without label or icon.

All pre-fields Label width Result
set to 'nothing' 0 All pre-fields set to nothing, no width
set to 'nothing' 70px All pre-fields set to nothing
set to 'label' 0 All pre-fields set to label, no width
set to 'label' 70px All pre-fields set to label
set to 'nothing' All pre-fields set to noting
set to 'icon' All pre-fields set to icon
Here, depending on the theme used and how the layout is setup, you may want to hide the noicon class via CSS on the field fieldname.

Wrapping field values

Wrapping field values

By default, all values are forced to show on one line, to the exception of text blocks and formatted addresses. It is now possible to wrap values so that they can be seen no matter the size of the card.

Wrap under: No

The value of the field wraps, but does not use the space under its pre-field.

set to 'nothing' portrait All pre-fields set to noting, wrap under set to no
