These column sorting input fields shows the current method of sorting applied to the table. Use the drop down field choices and click the column heading name. Alternatively, click on the column heading to sort the list by that column's value. This will also change the value in the drop field to correspond with the column header name.

Click a second time to reverse the sort, which will change the corresponding drop field.

How to access

Column Headers

Click on the column heading to sort the list by that column's value.

Help35-Contact-Manager-columns-en.png
  • Ordering: (default). The column in which to sort displayed items in the table. The values are the same as the column heading names.
  • Checkbox: Check this box to select one or more items. To select all items, check the box in the column heading. After one or more boxes are checked, click a toolbar button to take an action on the selected item or items. Many toolbar actions, such as Publish and Unpublish, can work with multiple items. Others, such as Edit, only work on one item at a time. If multiple items are checked and you press Edit, the first item will be opened for editing.
  • Status. (Published/Unpublished/Trashed) The published status of the item.
  • Title. The name of the item. For a Menu Item, the Title will display in the Menu. For an Article or Category, the Title may optionally be displayed on the web page. This entry is required. You can open the item for editing by clicking on the Title.
  • Linked User. The username this contact is linked to (if applicable).
  • Access. The viewing level access for this item.
  • Language. Item language.
  • ID. This is a unique identification number for this item assigned automatically by Joomla!. It is used to identify the item internally, and you cannot change this number. When creating a new item, this field displays 0 until you save the new entry, at which point a new ID is assigned to it.

Column Filtering

Above the column headers on the right, there are 2 drop down input fields, Sort Table by: (preset to Title ascending) and a number (preset to 20) to display. Help35-colheader-Column-Filter-Titel-Ascending-DisplayNum-en.png

These column sorting input fields shows the current method of sorting applied to the table. Use the drop down field choices and click the column heading name. Alternatively, click on the column heading to sort the list by that column's value. This will also change the value in the drop field to correspond with the column header name. The list will then be sorted in order by that column and a sort icon(up or down arrow) will show next to the column name. Click a second time to reverse the sort, which will change the corresponding drop field.

  • Ordering: (default). The column in which to sort displayed items in the table. The values are the same as the column heading names.
  • Ascending (default). Shows ordering of selected column, ascending or descending.
  • # (default is 20). Shows the number of items to display on one page, default is 20 items. If there are more items than this number, you can use the page navigation buttons located at the bottom of the table. (Start, Prev, Next, End, and page numbers) to navigate between pages.
