I am using the Latest Events module but changed the settings to display the most recently created events. I set the module template to Iconic but on the frontend, it shows the created date above each event. This is not in the format string, which is blow:

${title}<br />${eventDate}[!a: - ${endDate(%I:%M%p)}]<br />${category}

Attached is a screenshot with the dates above the titles. Could you help me remove it?

The iconic layout is designed to show a formatted date to the left of the event details. Normally this is the event start date but for recently created events its the event creation date.

It looks as though your site isn't picking up the iconic styling so you could set the module to use the 'default' layout instead and this date field will then not appear.

Thanks for the quick reply.

The reason I chose the Iconic template for this module is because it doesn't show the border color on the left side of each event. In the default template's case, it's black. I have another module on the same page for Upcoming Events that displays border colors for the categories of the events. I do not want visitors to be confused by the border colors between the two modules.

Is there a way to remove the border color for the recently created events? Iconic doesn't have that but it has that created date at the top.

Hello anh,

Try the others like Alternative? ext?

Otherwise just inspect with Firefox and Firebug and find the class, apply a border-left: none !important; to it and place it in your template.css file in your Joomla! Template.

Feel free to PM me if you would like Custom Installs or Joomla! related work for a competitive quote.

Thanks for your help, Tony.

It looks like the Iconic template was displaying the created date from jevdateicon1 and jevdateicon2 classes in the latest.php file. I commented those out and the dates were remove from the front-end.
