Page and Module Class Suffixes in Joomla

Page and Module Class Suffixes in Joomla

When creating modules in Joomla, you may have seen a "Module Class Suffix" option.

When you add menu links in Joomla, you may have seen a "Page Class" option.

Did you know that these two features are very closely related? These features allow you to add custom CSS to specific modules or pages. This makes suffixes a really good way to style individual modules and pages.

We believe that a template framework should be minimalistic - it should have the bare minimum to load and function. Wright 3 tips the scales at just 563kb! As a result, when compared with other frameworks:

  • Wright-built sites load more quickly.
  • Wright-built templates are always the first to be updated when a new version of Joomla is released.
  • Wright works reliably with the most popular and the obscure Joomla Extensions.
  • Sites built with Wright are easier to migrate.
