Have used older version of this template and now the new 2.5.

When I click link to read story from news display or front page the article opens and the News Display images and thumbnails are blank black boxes without any images.  I attached a screen shot.

Thanks

Thanks for the quick help...

Also have a new question. 

On the top menu link for Home, if you go to read a story or leave the front page for another page the home link at the top only keeps you on the page you are on and not take you back to the front page.  It just started doing this so I'm not sure if I changed something without knowing or not.

Thanks...

Rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess and enable the SEF and URL rewrite settings in the global config

Once that's done, see where you are with both the news slider and returning home from other pages.

Made the change and while it allowed for a return to the front page, the images no longer showed up.  So I put it back to the way it was but left the file name changed.

Do you mind sharing what the fix for this was?  I am having the same problem.

My Shape 5 News Display shows perfectly on the main page, but after clicking on any article, I get the same blank boxes explained in this post. I have the Shape 5 News Display selected for all pages in the Module Manager.

My website is www.westfirebirds.com

Hello,

In the Joomla Global Configuration try and disable SEF URLs and URL Rewriting and test it from there. It is possible that your images aren't being redirected properly by the servers settings.
