CW Content Image

CW Content Image

CW Content Image is a module that displays the image associated with the current page, whether the page is an article or category page, or if it is a tag page, separating the display of the page's content from the page's image.

By separating the display of the page's content from the page's image, CW Content Image enables you to more easily customize the layout of your site.

Creating a Template Override

If you want to override the standard layout, you have to create a template override as follows:

  1. Copy /modules/mod_cw_contentimage/default.php to /templates/{YOUR_TEMPLATE}/html/mod_cw_contentimage/default.php *
  2. Modify as needed

* Note: If you want to have multiple template overrides, you can create multiple copies of default.php, but give it different names. Each new override will be available in as an option in the Alternate Layout parameter in the Advanced parameter tab in the module.
