Hi,
in order to get such layout you would need to create 3 views, for each one you must configure the view to 'filter' using the category column with one of the values. Now you can use a default article and the module view (3 modules, with positions listview1, listview2, listview3 for ex) in order to create your desired layout:

CATEGORY 1
{loadposition listview1}


CATEGORY 2
{loadposition listview2}


CATEGORY 3
{loadposition listview3}

Hope this helps,regards

Thank you that solution is working except that it leaves a great deal of blank lines that I would like to remove.
Please see http://www.alynnsbutterflyinn.com/joomla/index.php/events

Can you advise how/where/what to remove so that I can delete that excess space between the modules.
Thanks!

Hi,
ok, you have several extra spaces that you can remove. First, your can try to remove a couple of new lines (br tags) that are at the module template:


joomla\modules\mod_listmanager\tmpl\content.php

lines 1634 and 1638

and also your template is adding an extra margin of 20 px to each of the forms, at your css


joomla/templates/ALBI/css/template.css (line 861) you have


form {
margin: 0 0 20px;
}

You can correct at the template or if you prefer to apply only to ListManager forms, you can add this to LM css


joomla/modules/mod_listmanager/assets/css/default2.css

#lm_wrapper form{

margin: 0px !important;
}

Hope this will do the work, let us know if you need further help with this.

Regards
