Yes to publish in home.
The mod is very similar to the old one i am using, altern8news, so I think I'm doing what's right. I'm gonna uninstall it and reinstall. Maybe something happened during the download via ftp?

or i can try this other news module?

Re: Problem editing news items

XM-Spotlight and LatestNews Module are modules that create blocks that display items from the news module.

did enabling debugging show anything? and also are you using php5?

XOOPS Version: XOOPS 2.3.0
PHP Version: 5.2.6

Not sure how to enable debug but will try that. I'm sorry for so much trouble. Maybe i should just keep using that old Altern8news and just not be able to edit items unless I copy and paste into a seperate editor then back again. Double work but I'm about out of luck here.

Re: Problem editing news items

ok now what about.. in the topic manager (in the news module administration) and look for the 'Publish in front page ?' setting.

Re: Problem editing news items

what about creating another topic(category) and see if items in there have the same problem?

(i'm out of ideas.)

I have about five topics already and all the same.

Thanks anyway for all the help. Maybe someday the creator of altern8news will create a newer version. Or not.

If you have them set to display in the centre block positions (any of the six) then turn them off.

Ah.... have you checking in the News module's admin to make sure that they are all approved? The might not have been if you didn't do it manually prior to changing the setting.

4. when I don't have it set as start page I click on "news" in the main menu and get the same blank page. The only time I get the page visible is when I go to admin and the list of news items I click on them and see them exactly as it should be.


So you can see complete individual aticles but not summaries (i.e. The Scoop) on the index page.

I'm a pain right?


Nope. There is something very simple which is not set correctly - we just need to find out what.

Please can you go to Modules Admin and find the News module in the list. Is there a value other than "0" in the "Order column?

If no, then set it to a positive number. If yes, then click on the "Update" icon to refresh the module.

If this doesn't work then upload the module again; the only other explanation is corrupt or missing file.
