URL problem leads to template problem

URL problem leads to template problem

Postby isherwood » Tue Jul 31, 2012 4:44 pm

Hello. Thank you very much for this extension. In my case it's nearly perfect.

My problem is that the articles display in the home page template due to the fact that the URLs are built without the article's category or menu item alias. For example, if I'm at /my-blog and click an article teaser title, I'm not taken to /my-blog/article-title, I'm simply taken to /article-title. In my RocketTheme template (and as is the Joomla way), all the home page modules load around the article and the menu indicates that I'm on the home page. Instead, the modules for /my-blog should load, and the menu item for that page should be active.

For example, see http://humanistsofmn.org/member-blogs/eric. Click on any article title. The modules above the article body shouldn't appear, and the Blogs menu item should be styled as active.

I've dealt with this issue many times before, and usually creating a hidden menu to the category blog clears it right up. In this case, Author Blog seems to override Joomla's default behavior and displays the articles in the home page layout.

Thanks again, and thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
