Hello!
I use OTNews and it is very easily to understand and it works very nice!

Only thing I really miss, the readmore link opens the article down on the same page,
But it do not bringing you to it.
You have to find out by yourself to scroll down.

Is it possible to put the action to the link Read More to go automatically down to the article ?

thanks in advance!

Hi,
You can see the demos of OT News here: http://demo.omegatheme.com/joomla17/extensions/.

Maybe in your case, when click to any readmore, it will open the category blog link, so all the articles appear (!?).
If so, in the parameters, please choose "Show category link" to "No" and choose "Show Readmore" to "Yes". Then Save and review.

Thanks for using our products!

Hello, thanks for an answer.
But it is not the solution, because I already did what you suggest about the configuration.

Maybe it is because I use Joomla 2.5 already. It is not working like your DEMO site.

You can take a look at the url. There you see what it does.
www.projektburo.nl/website/index.php/jou...-100-tonnen-nutzlast

Thanks again...
Hope you can help, because my client wants to publish to his clients but not no with this...

I think it can be arranged in this code from mod_otnews/tmpl/default.php
lines 55 - 64
<!-- Show Content -->
<div class="ot_content"><?php echo $item->content; ?></div>
<!-- Show Readmore of Head item -->
<?php if($params->get('readmore_head_item') == 1) {?>
<div class="otnews_readmore"><a href="<?php echo $item->link; ?>" class="ot_readm"><?php echo JText::_('READMORE') ?></a></div>
<?php }else {?>
<?php echo ''; ?>
<?php } ?>
<!-- End -->
</div>

Hi,

I've seen your site. :)
The problem is the menu item assignment (page assignment). Currently, your OT News module is choose to display on all page! You need go to module edit page, then assign this module to the menu item (page) you want. For example you need to assign module to this page only: http://www.projektburo.nl/website/index.php/journaal, choose menu item named "journaal" only.

Thanks!

Hello thanks again,

You mean the module add to one of the menu?
So I did allready choose only for Journal. See the picture added here...
Otherwise you have to see the module also on the other menu pages... that is not the case.

Do you have an other suggestion, or maybe I provide my login to the admin (in a private way?)

Thanks!

Hello,

You did not enter my website wich you wanted to do for me, to help yet?

I saw this new topic with my reply and yours on it with an answer (see below that answer)
I followed the link you wrote for the solution.
But you make it a bit too difficult for me.
My php is not that good for writing something good wich will work...
And I do not want to use it on the home page...
I hope you understand that this NEWS module is so nice that people will use it everywhere on websites, I think.....

Can you do for us what you did for the other person See it below?
"Hi,
You can download the modified version of Mega MiniNews module (mod_megamininews) included in mega_eSporter for Joomla 1.7. I 've added support Itemid params and you can add an Itemid of page you want.
Just download, install (not need to remove old one) and then config."



Hi Lorenzo,

As user "gwszvh" said, you can see that topic. The problem can called: module appears again.
The Ot News is designed for homepage, so if:
1. you put the module at homepage,
2. choose module to display at homepage only (in menu assignment section when edit module in back-end)

If you meet 2 above conditions, then when click to readmore or link, it shows article on the page which module won't appear again. (See demos here)
If you put module on inner page, the module will still show when you click to readmore or link.

My topic has a few answers with no solution yet for me. Maybe it will work for you.
Its called "OT News - miss the action from read more"


Actually we have "The solution for all that cases" - that is "add custom Itemid to the readmore link and article link, then choose module not shown on that Itemid/page". This solution required you know some about Joomla, php so can modify the module.

There is a topic same this problem and solved, another module, but can help you all understand why.

Hi,
I've uploaded the modified version here - please login to download (if it ask you login twice).

The usage:
1. Create a hidden menu and add a menu item called "journaal" - for example. I call it hidden menu because we don't publish the module of that menu on front-end, just create and publish menu and menu-item.
2. After create menu-item, you'll have menu item id. Paste that number at Itemid parameter of OT News module. Also, at Menu Assignment area, choose:
- Module Assignment: only the pages selected.
- Menu Selection: please only select menu and menu item at the step 1.

That's all. when click to any article links or readmore links, it will show that article on the page specified.

Goodluck!

Ok now it is working !!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

But its only working if I set Search Engine friendly urls on NO
Also the other options must set on NO otherwise I get the blank wit red page with this text

500 - View is not found [name, type, prefix]: 12journaal, html, contentView

One Other question:

The page is opening in een new page now, that very nice!.
But is it possible to get on this new page the Category and Article Title again on the top of the page? Instead of these it see the word Articles above coming on... I did not use that word anywhere..Why is that showing, do you think?
Also the front-placed picture again on the new page would be nice..

Hi,

Maybe some configurations not right or suitable. We tested with SEF enable ok. Also, if you need please send us admin access and we can check this.
Also the other options must set on NO otherwise I get the blank wit red page with this text
500 - View is not found [name, type, prefix]: 12journaal, html, contentView
If you turn Use URL rewriting on please make sure mod_rewrite supported.
But is it possible to get on this new page the Category and Article Title again on the top of the page? Instead of these it see the word Articles above coming on... I did not use that word anywhere..Why is that showing, do you think?
You may need read more and more on docs.joomla.org about this.

I am also trying to have my articles open in a new page instead of below all the categories and have a quick question.

When I setup the menus as below:

1. Create a hidden menu and add a menu item called "journaal" - for example. I call it hidden menu because we don't publish the module of that menu on front-end, just create and publish menu and menu-item.

Q: When I add the menu item to the hidden menu what menu type should I be using?

Thanks!

Hi,
You can use any type you want (eg: an single article view or a category view ) because we just need the id of that menu item to put to module parameter. Then at module we choose not display module at that page (that menu item) in menu assignment.
