Hello Smiley
I just install Lime Light site shaper on my web server but i have some issue regardind Categories.
This is the website adress :

My first issue is :
I have some related articles classified over the same category.
I want to create a link in the main menu that will display a list of these articles. I create a new menu item, select category list and i choose the category.
This new menu item has a parent in main menu.
It appears on the web site but when i click on it, boum ... 404
On, you have to put your mouse on DPC then the menu item concerned is "session ? venir"

Second issue
Always an issue with category but that time in a module.
I create a module to display some articles (the same as previously in fact) on some page of the website.
The module work, display articles but when i click on title, page seems to charge without template (or css or something like that)
You can see it on :

Is that a configuration problem on my category/article/menu item/module/template, is it an issue on template or a joomle one ?

Thank you in advance Wink

If you are getting a 404 error somewhere the template does not control any part of that. That is entirely controlled by Joomla itself. If you have enabled SEF urls under global configuration make sure you have renamed htaccess.txt to .htaccess on your server. You can also try disabling SEF to see if that's the root of the cause.

Modules always show on their parent page when clicking the read more link, that's a default feature of the module. The only way around that is to create a menu item that points either to the article or the category, and on that menu item don't publish any modules. Again, that's a default feature of Joomla itself.

Thanks for your quick answer !
You were right, Search Engine Friendly URLs was activated and that was the source of the 2 issues.
I just disable it and now, categories work find.

Thanks again !
