Trouble with header display

Trouble with header display


Scratching my head on this one.

See http://dev.fabulous-woman.co.uk/index.php/hampshire - the empty box on the right hand side is a metamod module to display articles of a specific category.

If the header for the zoo module assigned to show on this page is set to "Hide" - nothing will show even though the title is set to "show" within the meta mod module.

If the header is set to show within the Zoo module - it shows the module header twice.

This occurs regardless of how the meta module is set up. It works 100% on the banner ad ...

what am I missing?

Many thanks in advance

Re: Trouble with header display

Hi pschwartz,

There's some terminology I'm not understanding quite yet... can you help me here?

What's the "header" in the Zoo module you are talking about? Do you mean the title of the module? I think that's what you mean.

Here's how it works:

1 - if you use the "title on/off" in the MetaMod, this only controls the title of the MetaMod, not the title of the module(s) it includes. In most cases you would turn this OFF if you want each included module to have its own title.

2 - Each included module can have its own title, but whether this gets displayed or not depends on the way that the module position or MetaMod decides to display the module. There's a dropdown box "style for included modules" which gives some alternative ways of displaying it, and some of these don't display the title of the included modules, only the content.

Does that help?
