Hi

When I click on 'Read More' link of an article, it opens within the frontpage. It should open a new page with the article only, like in the original template. Is there a setting that I need to change?

Thanks

Hi

This is the way Joomla works, since 1.6.

You have to create a new menu item that points to either that article or the article's category. It doesn't have be a published menu item, just created. Then on that newly created menu item don't publish any modules. It's a bit of a pain, to be honest, but it's just the way Joomla is set up now.

Not working properly. It only works if the menu item is published.
