remove numbers in category list

Let's say you do not like the display of the numbers in a category list layout (I didn't)

For example
1. this is first article
2. this is second article
3. this is third article

None of the parameters within Joomla allow you to turn this off.

You need to edit the template override file:

This is the file to edit: default_items.php

Location:../templates/<your template name>/html/com_content/category/default_items.php

 

If you are using the "beez" template overide files look for this section of code:

<th class="sectiontableheader<?php echo $this->escape($this->params->get('pageclass_sfx')); ?>" id="count">
<?php echo JText::_('Num'); ?>
</th>

You can comment it out to look like this:

<!-- <th class="sectiontableheader<?php echo $this->escape($this->params->get('pageclass_sfx')); ?>" id="count">
<?php echo JText::_('Num'); ?>
</th>
-->

Further down the page look for this code:

<td headers="count">
<?php echo $this->pagination->getRowOffset((int)$item->count); ?>
</td>

comment it out also to look like this:

<!-- <td headers="count">
<?php echo $this->pagination->getRowOffset((int)$item->count); ?>
</td>
-->

Save the file...

Note: There are similar pieces of code to remove numbers in the categories for weblinks:

This is the file to edit: default_items.php

Location:../templates/<your template name>/html/com_weblinks/category/default_items.php
