Hello Shape5,

I am having a little problem with articles linked from S5 Masonry on the home page.

This one for example:-
http://www.pokemondungeon.com/news/games/pokemon-go-spoofers-to-be-hit-by-android-71-update

This was clicked from S5 masonry on the homepage, but when it opens instead of opening just the article, it keeps all the stuff that is only MODULE ASSIGNED to HOMEPAGE ? (Top Boxes should not display on article page, they are set to only be assigned to home, same with Popular Features block)

I am trying to get it to just open in it's own article like on your demo version: http://www.shape5.com/demo/game_world/index.php/latest-news/35-xbox/135-next-battlefield-version-is-revealed

Could you please tell me how?

Hello,

That is the default way that Joomla works. What you need to do is create a new menu item that points to that articles' category, and on that new menu item don't publish any modules. By not doing this Joomla does not have a page assignment to use for the articles, so it automatically inherits the layout and module assignments of the parent page. Once you create a new menu item then it knows what layout and modules to use on the read more page.
