Showing the extra fields on the Frontend 

And finally, how we show the extra fields on the front end?


1. Articles

The Aixeena CCK articles extra fields are stored on the Joomla #__content attrbs field, so you must show the as other attributes:

$attrb = json_decode($this->item->attribs);
echo $attrb->fieldname;

2. Categories and menu items

The Aixeena CCK categories and menu items extra fields are stored on the Joomla params fields (o each table), so you must show the as other params:

$this->params->get('fieldname')) or $params->get('fieldname'))
