To access the properties of the module and its toolbars, click the menu selection in the upper left corner, then select toolbars.

A toolbar is a field that the visitor chooses to minimise or maximise themselves. They can then control their layout depending on whether they want to see a lot of information or less.

Example toolbar

Two minimized toolbars and one maximized

To set a toolbar, tick the Show toolbar box.

This setting controls the font of the toolbar heading. The fonts you access are governed by your permissions, as well as the fonts that are set up on your website.

Minimized icon

Here you select the icon to display at the heading of the toolbar when the bar is minimised. With a minimised view, the toolbar is closed (you see only the heading) and other modules on the page.

Maximized icon

Select the icon maximum from the list. With a maximised view, you only see the content that is in the toolbar. You will not see other modules on the page. This setting is only available on modules, not layouts.

Normal icon

Select the normal icon from the list. A normal view (Reset) displays the toolbar open and other modules on the page.

The icons are visible only in view mode! Maximised icon is only available on modules, not layouts.

If the visitor chooses minimised view and leaves the website, this toolbar will be minimised for the visitor the next time they visit the site. The settings are saved.

Show toolbar minimized as default

Tick the box if you want the toolbar to be minimised the first time a visitor arrives at the page. The visitor can then decide which fields are minimised or maximised.

This function requires you to have a license for Customised views.
