HWD Categories

The categories page works great using standardized Joomla! output for css and HTML. Easily define the default order in the backend, and allow your users to re-select the order as they view in the front end. Simply click the 'view all' link in the Joomla! slider and see every category.

Use the select drop-downs to further filter the media you're looking for. Select the media by Title, Most Popular and Most Media.

The Categories 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. You can use this with details(Details) or without(Gallery).

We also give you the option to view the list of HWDMediaShare categories using the default J! Categories css styles and output (List). This will fit into any template that uses the default Joomla! css styles.
