If you are a first time admin of Joomla,  you may notice when you post an article, you see a quirky “Details” text appear above the publisher info such as:


Welcome to my Site

blah blah blah

Here are the steps to remove the Details text from Joomla articles within Joomla 2.5.x:


  1. Login as Admin
  2. Click Extensions -> Language Manager
  3. Click Overrides in the Subnav
  4. Click New to create a a language variable override.
  5. Add the following for Language Constant:   COM_CONTENT_ARTICLE_INFO
  6. For the Text:   make sure its completely empty
  7. Save and you are done.
I had issues with this getting to work correctly.    If you want a surefire way to remove it, alternatively you can modify the Joomla core
componentscom_contentviewsfeaturedtmpldefault _item.php
to remove the text or comment out the echo.
