Is it possible to adapt so that the articles are in alphabetical order, or preferably, ordered according to their order set in the back-end?

My articles in the minitab are such that I would like an overview article to always sit at the top of the list on each tab.

thanks :)

btw Joomla 1.7

Hi thellie,
In the back-end, at this module edit page, there is parameters area at the right side. You'll find the "order by" options.

Yes, I have seen them already, but the order options are limited to ones related to 'Recently...' and 'Most hits..'

I would like one based on the parameters I mentioned, but these options are not available.

Which files would I need to hack to add these options myself? I'm fairly comfortable in PHP and MySQL, so am not worried about giving it a go.

Hi,
Great to hear that! You can find the file named "helper.php" in "modules/mod_otminitabs/".

Goodluck and thanks for using our products!

Ok, thanks.

Below is the amended code, but I had to manually change the ordering parameter in the #_modules table, to the new option (o_asc), as I couldn't work out where the MySQL table is updated. I also added the option to the en-GB files in the language folder, but as the MySQL update doesn't work, this is currently redundant.
        // Set ordering
        $order_map = array(
            'm_dsc' => 'a.modified DESC, a.created',
            'mc_dsc' => 'CASE WHEN (a.modified = '.$db->quote($db->getNullDate()).') THEN a.created ELSE a.modified END',
            'c_dsc' => 'a.created',
            'p_dsc' => 'a.publish_up',
            'h_dsc' => 'a.hits',
            'o_asc' => 'a.ordering'
        );
        
        $ordering = JArrayHelper::getValue($order_map, $params->get('ordering'), 'a.publish_up');
        IF($order_map='o_asc') {$dir = 'ASC';} ELSE {$dir = 'DESC';}
        $model->setState('list.ordering', $ordering);
        $model->setState('list.direction', $dir);

Hi

I have tried to change my code to

// Set ordering
$order_map = array(
'm_dsc' => 'a.modified DESC, a.created',
'mc_dsc' => 'CASE WHEN (a.modified = '.$db->quote($db->getNullDate()).') THEN a.created ELSE a.modified END',
'c_dsc' => 'a.created',
'p_dsc' => 'a.publish_up',
);
$ordering = JArrayHelper::getValue($order_map, $params->get('ordering'), 'a.publish_up');
IF($order_map='p_dsc') {$dir = 'ASC';} ELSE {$dir = 'DESC';}

But the ELSE function doesn't seem to work....


Best regards
Morten
