Read more leads to a blank page

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

I have installed the quickstart package of New Lifestyle and when I choose read more from the slideshow it leads to a blank page. It happens with all the three slides. Could you please help me?

Ah ok

This means Joomla is getting a bit confused and reloading the home page

Create a menu - call it hidden menu and add either individual article or category links to it that cover the three pages you want it to link

I have used the hidden menu technique to correct the missing item ID challenge in the past.
But I'm having a bad-hair day!... and I'm unable to fix the item ID issue this time. Can you walk me/us through the exact steps/information entered, to get the "linked articles" ('Read More' in the homepage slide show), in your quickstart package to display please?

Thanks,

Hi

Create a new menu - I call it hidden
Create a category link for the category in question in that menu

You don't need to publish the menu in a module

If I want to assign different modules to different articles for that category I will instead create individual article links in the hidden menu

Here's what I've done... and here's what I see Paul. I don't see the option to select a category.

Right so in the hidden menu you need to create some new menu links

The links you create would be the content used in the slideshow -
category blog link, single article links etc

Why does this item id issue happen?

The itemid, along with some other functionality, tells Joomla what modules the requested article or component should load. This usually works great, but when a component or article has no menu item, and therefore no itemid, Joomla assigns a default value of 1.

For almost all sites Itemid=1 is the frontpage, so Joomla loads up all the frontpage modules with your component or article awkwardly squished in, if it shows at all.
