Vehicle Labels (Ribbons) Since v4.1.0

In version 4.1.0 we have introcduced a new label system, the older label system is still active and will be maintained. In version 4.1.0 and later it becomes possible to set your own labels. It is a bit more work to set up, but you have unlimited labels from now on. As it is hard for us to add all the labels you like, we made it possible to select your own labels. 

One thing to keep in mind;

  • You have to add the newly added labels once to the CSS. (make an override for the CSS or add it to your website CSS)
  • You have to create your own label in png format. (The size can be defined by CSS)
  • Good to know; When setting a vehicle with the label "New" you have to unset it yourself!!
  • Good to know; It will also work when the label system is turned off in the RD-Autos Configuration.

How to use the new labels?

  • Once you have created the ribbon/label in photoshop or another program then save it as a png file to your computer.
    Naming conventions: your-label-name.png or yourlabelname.png (all other characters are stripped)
  • Then upload the file to the next folder on your hosting package;
    [website-root]/components/com_rdautos/assets/labels/
  • Edit your CSS, and add the label like this below the other label classes.
    .label-hot{
    background: url(../labels/label-hot.png) no-repeat;
    }
    In the above example the name of our png was: label-hot.png 
    The label class needs to be the same but without .png

  • Then navigate to your backend and edit a vehicle, you will see an extra select box which will hold all your labels.
  • Select the label you want and it is being shown.
