Joomla Open Content Page Without Template

April 22, 2012

This is a nice little trick if you want to open an image or a page for printing in Joomla without having the surrounding template. Instead of having a link pointing at a page like:

index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=65&itemid=

Change the link to point at:

index2.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=65&itemid=

Opening it in index2.php just gives you the content without the navigation or other parts of your template. This means you might want to open the link as target=”_blank” so that the user can close the window again afterwards and get back to your main content.

This works in Joomla 1.0 – haven’t tested it in 1.5 yet.
