Why does link open page below home page content?

Post by TheEdge » Wed Mar 25, 2020 11:20 pm

Hi,

- Joomla 3.9.16
- Site URL: https://tjillarijustice.rcdhost.net.au/

For the life of me I cannot work out why a ReadMore link for a component on the home page opens the content below the main content of the home page instead of going to a new page and displaying the content.

I attach an image(s) showing the behaviour:

Open home page and click on ReadMore:
j_1.png
While URL changes to https://tjillarijustice.rcdhost.net.au/ ... ple-2.html it still renders the content on the home page in the main content area:
j_2.png
If someone would like to take a look at the back end I will provide access via PM. However any pointers are appreciated as I am clearly missing something obvious here I am sure.

@Webdongle What do you mean test with Prostar? Use a different template and see if the behaviour persists?

I think the solution to this case could be using a hidden menu for the article. You can find the solution to this article. I find it explained quite well.

Not quite. I mean test with Protostar because it is know to work and can be used as a 'control'. Not just because it's "a different template".
