Hi...I have a couple of questions on blocks.

1.) I have changed all permissions according to the install docs, activated the News block, entered topics and subtopics, entered a couple of articles, and clicked on "update" in the admin menu, but I cannot get anything to show up in the "News Topics" block.

2.) When I go to the blocks section on the admin menu, and I click on a block to edit it, "Main Menu" for example, should I be able to see the content (HTML) that generates the menu in the content field of the form? If so, it is not showing up. If not, how do I edit the content of the Main Menu and any other blocks?

Well, I figured out #1 above. I had to go back and re-edit a topic after I had changed the permissions to force the system to recreate the topictree.txt file in /modules/news/cache.

Still wondering about #2, though.

2 -) No, the generation is automatic!
the field "Content" is for "add" before or after more information!
For add or remove options from main menu is easy. or set right into groups, or if not use the feature, disable the module!

Experiment with this: create new Custom block, put a title, and create a "Content" inside

And look the result, remember activate this block (visible).

2) The main menu is auto-generated, so it cannot be edited from the admn section. The content field of the blocks form for modules blocks is to add additional contents to each block. You can add your contents to either before or after the original cotents of a module block.

Okay, so if I want to change something on the Main Menu, for instance (i.e., reword something, remove sub-options), I have to disbable the default main menu and create a new custom main menu block?
