Dear Shape 5,

Sorry to ask such a ridiculously simple question....
I would like clicking on the top box to link to a specific 'article'.
Is that possible- and how?  I understand the parameter interface asking for /content/65/158.... etc... but when I view the site by FTP, there isn't even a folder called /content ...  and what does the 65 and the 158 mean?

Yes - I know to joomla experts this will sound ridiculous - but please take pity on a newbie, and let me know how this translates?

Thank you for your patience and undertanding!

Hello, you can set links in the module's backend but you need to put in the exact url of the article, the module cannot look up the article's link.

Hello,

You would create an article in Joomla itself through the article manager, once you do that you just assign a menu item to the article.

If an article you are trying to link to is not in a menu already, I tend to create a menu called "background" this makes it easier to link to the article. copy the link to the article and paste it into the link area of the module.
