Hi

What template style do you have assigned to the pages other than home?

If you check the layout does it include the content / component area?

Also as a side issue notice the map isn't working

Do you have an api key added to the map?
and do you have the latest version of the maps2 module installed?

Cheers
Paul

I only have home assigned. How do I assign something else and what do you mean by:
"If you check the layout does it include the content / component area?"

If you open up the template settings and go to the layout tab

Do you see any positions called "main" or "sidebar-1" or "sidebar-2" ?

I don't see those positions. I see something like that in the drop down selection. The attached screenshot has what I see.

Hi

You are looking at the right place

You need to assign the template style you have currently to the home page only

Then duplicate the template style and change the layout (as per your screenshot) to default

Then make the template style the default template style by clicking the star in the template style list

With the default layout you will now have the content / component area set to show

The screenshot shows an end product. I am not sure based on the original template what you exchanged for 'Auto sidebar 2' and 'Auto sidebar 1'. You have changed up the layout and I am not sure at which point to start the auto side bar stuff. The first 7 positions in the original tempalte are abovecontent, menu, panel1, banner, tabs, grid1, grid2. which ones do I change to the 'auto sidebar' and message and component?

In the quickstart there are two different template styles that are relevant

With the home layout on this template it assumes the content is module driven so it doesn't include the content / component content area

The component content area is including with this layout

Without a template style with this layout being assigned to pages (non home) then the content won't display

With most templates abovecontent and belowcontent require the content area to be available to display - the exception to the rule :)

and the default layout is set as default template style

With assignment a page assigned as default will be overridden if another page is assigned to a specific page

Okay, first problem is that I only have 1 template. I am using the file package, JB_NewLifestyle_J2.5_J3+_v2.0.6.zip. There is no 'Front Page' version of the template I am seeing.
