CSS properties to add to the view to tweak the output

Example .wlp_directory ul { color: white; }

Bootstrap compatibility If you are using a Bootstrap template, select which version of Bootstrap your template is compatible with. It will ensure the extension outputs the proper classes for the Bootstrap version you are using.

The Joomla option loads the Bootstrap version packaged with Joomla (which is the default behavior). All other options WILL NOT load Bootstrap
Show errors Will show the errors encountered while creating the view (mostly during thumbnail creation), if any. It can help determine why some logo won’t show, for instance
Remove whitespaces Removes white spaces from the HTML output for faster page loading. Please report any issue
Load Icon font In rare cases (when no icons are shown), will prevent the loading of the icon font library, reducing page loading times
Load Chosen script Beautifies the select boxes with this jQuery script packaged with Joomla


Re-create pictures whether to re-create the image thumbnails every time the page is loaded or not.
'No' will improve server performance once the module is properly configured and ready for prime time
Auto Clear Cached Image Install and enable the Auto Clear Cached Image system plugin and automatically refresh the image associated with the weblink you just saved. No more manual intervention needed, all extension instances are updated at once!
Unique files Creates image file names that are unique to the view. To share images across views, set to 'no'
Thumbnails cache path The path for the thumbnails created (by default, in the media folder under /thumbnails/wlp).
It is possible to save the files to the temporary folder of the Joomla configuration or the /cache folder
  • Thumbnails are created only once by default. Set re-create pictures to 'yes' to trigger their re-creation at every site access. Leaving the option to 'yes' is useful during the site creation phase. Set to 'No' when going public.
  • When thumbnails are deleted manually or by emptying the tmp folder, they are re-created automatically.
  • Using the images folder as thumbnail folder has advantages: easy access to manual deletion (by-passing the 'Re-create pictures' parameter set to 'No', which can make the process faster when many instances of the module exist), no file permission restrictions.
  • Weblink external images need the allow_url_fopen PHP setting to be enabled to be transformed into thumbnails.

Header files

Reset headers Triggers the re-creation of the stylesheet and the script files at every page access.
'No' will improve server performance once the module is properly configured and ready for prime time.
Stylesheets are cached in the /cache folder. Deleting the cached files from the administrator console (System -> Clear Cache) prevents resetting the Reset Headers parameter to 'yes' when changes are made
