Create custom blog category layout in Joomla 1.5

If you need to customize the blog category layout in Joomla 1.5 you do like this: 

  1. Create the following subfolders to your template directory: 
    mkdir -p templates/yourtemplate/html/com_content/category
  2. Copy blog.php and blog_item.php from Joomla core:
    cp -p components/com_content/view/category/tmpl/blog.php templates/yourtemplate/html/com_content/category
    cp -p components/com_content/view/category/tmpl/blog.php templates/yourtemplate/html/com_content/category
  3. Customize blog.php and blog_item.php in the components/com_content/view/category/tmpl/blog.php templates/yourtemplate/html/com_content/category folder to your needs. These modified files will override the ones in the Joomla core if they exists.
