  2. Gallery: media thumbnails only
  3. List: media with details displayed in a list
Search Filter

Search Filter

HWDMediaShare uses the default search filtering options from Joomla! Filter by a keyword and the media will display based on your search criteria.

Dropdown Filters

Drop-down Filters

Use the select drop-downs to further filter the media you're looking for. Select the media by type, meta information, or display the number of items you wish to see.

Blog Layout

Blog Layout

The media page uses the standard blog layout css/output used in Joomla's com_content component. This is to ensure that the component will remain consistent with any template you install that uses the standard Joomla! css output styles.

Media Meta Data

Media Meta Data

The Media page also displays the meta data for that media and includes the author with a link to their user channel as well as the number of times the media had been viewed.



Staying consistent with our goal of retaining Joomla! standard output the pagination for the HWDMediaShare component included default Joomla! pagination.
