How to delete unwanted text

Postby instantclick » Fri Mar 02, 2012 2:25 pm

I am getting some unwanted text at the top left of each Article Page. It says 'You Are Here: Home' etc and similar for other pages.

Would anyone know how to get rid of this. The site can be found at

Login to backend, then click on Article manager open the article that is showing on your front page eg: View Vehicles then look on the right hand side Parameters (Advanced) open this and choose NO instead of Use Global. look through the list and do the same for the rst of the stuff you do not want to show.

This looks for me like breadcrumbs which is one of the modules default set on in yoomla. You can switch it off in modules manager. And rest you can hide/show in article options or in menu item options. I would suggest try 1st in menu item, if you display article from menu.

It is definitely breadcrumbs and can be turned off in the module manager.
