Thanks for your update about article layout. I looked over your link, but the part entitled Alternative Layout is not helpful to me. Because even as an experienced Joomla web developer, I have no idea what is a "layout" in Joomla. I have suggestions to improve your Article Layout documentation.
Your documentation says the layout can be placed in templates/my-template/html/com_content/article/, but WHAT do I place there?
The answer is earlier in this thread: a version of this file: components/com_content/views/article/tmpl/default.php, modified to suit.
What do I name this file? It's not clear that the layout name corresponds to the prefix part of "default.php." (I understand now that you have shown me by example. I'm thinking of your other users now.)
You write as though "article layout" is an ordinary Joomla concept. But I've never heard of it. You also parenthetically mention "template override," which I have heard of, but my few attempts over the years to actually use a template override in Joomla have just not been successful.
What I mean is, as the author of Articles Anywhere you probably understand article layouts inside and out, but someone who purchases Articles Anywhere extension may not know about it at all. So if it is an ordinary Joomla concept, surely there are some Joomla documentation links you can refer to to help your readers to understand it. I think it would be helpful to include such links in your documentation on Alternative Layout.
An aside, now that I've been working with WordPress for a few years as well as Joomla, I've learned to do template overrides in WordPress -- successfully.
