The Categories Module

The SobiPro Categories Module allows to list SobiPro categories in a standard Joomla! module position. There are several settings that allow a great deal of flexibility in the order the categories are shown and in filtering them, as well as the ability to customize the style of the categories through a module's CSS or any other stylesheet. By default it loads your SobiPro template's theme CSS file (default3 based SobiPro templates only).

Due to its adjustable sorting order and field settings, the Categories module serves a lot of different purposes, no need for additional modules. Use the module as a

  • Most popular categories module
  • Latest categories module

  • Module for categories expiring soon
  • Random categories module

Additionally the sorting order can be determined by a category input box field, a category single select list field or a category calendar field from the currently selected section (directory), so the module can also be used as a

  • Sort categories by field module

The categories can also be filtered by every category field select list, checkbox group or radio group item of the selected section (directory), so the module can be used e.g. as a

  • Featured categories module
  • Module for categories with specific content

You can use all these different module types simultaneously by using the module several times for one or more sections.
