Add or Remove Prefix to Component Name in Joomla Menu


I would like to demonstrate you the new feature of removing and adding a prefix to your Component name in the Joomla menu Take a look at the menu there’s this little arrow in front of Component Builder And that’s the prefix we talking about in the past it would add that automatically Now it will still do that but you can actually change it so Go to the global options of a component And under the global tab You see a new area called Add Menu Prefix And there’s a little description there And you can say no And then it won’t have any prefix Or you can change this to any Other prefix you want Are there you don’t need to add a space here and the space is automatically done so you can check out This list here. There is a link to a list of HTML character entities that you need to use here This will obviously translate to that arrow And You need to make sure to use something that can be it just placed inside of an XML file So That means that if you wanna use strange characters like that arrow You need to use the HTML you could also use your company name or You can use anything it’ll basically just add that As a prefix to the component name So just of illustrate this Let me change this a little bit So I am grabbing the the value here The one without the x is the one we looking for so this the & hash Value this one here I’m gonna grab that little circle with a dot. Well let’s take the one with the Circle in a circle that looks nice Ok I’m gonna take that one I’m gonna add it in here And I’m going to click save Ok it’s asking me to add some other info as well Ok try again save and close Now let’s go and compile one of the demo components here So you can say demo And compile And install it Now you’ll see it has this little circle Next to the demo name That’s the way we can Change that little Prefix And then obviously the option to just remove it altogether It’s also there Basically Saying no prefix save and close And let’s do it again Compile and install And now you’ll see it’s just the way usual components will look there is the demo So this little Prefix can be added or removed now thanks to this new feature
