Spacer parameter type

The "J1.5" namespace is an archived namespace. This page contains information for a Joomla! version which is no longer supported. It exists only as a historical reference, it will not be improved and its content may be incomplete and/or contain broken links.


The spacer parameter type provides a visual separator between parameter field elements. It is purely a visual aid and no parameter value is stored.

  • type (mandatory) must be spacer.
  • default (optional) (translatable) is a string which will be used instead of the <hr /> that is inserted by default.

Example XML parameter definition:

<param type="spacer" />

You can replace the basic horizontal line with a title which can be used to group parameters. For example,

<param type="spacer" default="Advanced parameters" />

Note that you can also include HTML markup but it must be encoded. For example, to put the text into bold you can use:

<param type="spacer" default="&lt;b&gt;Advanced parameters&lt;/b&gt;" />
