How to override the output from the Koparent

There may be occasions where you would like to change the way a Koparent Extension (or a Module) is displayed on your site. Of course, you could recode Koparent from scratch, but that may be a bit ambitious for you and you will not be able to upgrade Koparent without making that changes again! Thankfully, there is another way.

The standard output from any Joomla! Module or Component can be overridden by adding code to the html directory of your template.

Getting a head-start with overrides

If you are new to Joomla! development, then it is probably easiest to start with an existing view, and try modifying it to get what you want. To do this, you should make a copy of the existing view in the html directory of your template, and then modify the copy.

The directory structure you need is:


For example, if you want to change the way that the 'Advert' view displays a com_koparent advert, then you should copy the file at


(note the slight difference in directory structure)

Similarly, if you want to change how the mod_koparent_quicksearch Module is displayed, then you should copy


Joomla! comes pre-packaged with a frontend template called Beez. Inside the Beez template directory, you'll find a directory named html

the entire directory structure is as follows:

There you can see how simple modifications can make big impact on the site and how it is easily changed.

Further tips

Template overrides are almost limitless. They allow you to add, edit, and remove the components of the Joomla! core output. Note: For the FireFox web browser, an extension called Firebug is available, which is useful for browsing a page's HTML source and matching it up with the PHP code used in template overrides. Now firebug is also available for IE called Firebug Lite.
