Parent Category/Category Showing Still!

Post by dpitfield » Thu Dec 06, 2018 7:51 pm

Category and Parent displaying when they are not set on the page level and menu level. It seems to reset itself at times? I just want to have control of the at the page level. It has been driving me crazy for months, please help.

Config:
Display Category: Yes
Display Parent: Yes

Menu:
Display Category: Hide
Display Parent: Hide

Page:
Display Category: Hide
Display Parent: Hide

Here are some actual page examples:

Home Page:
Professionalsoccercoaching.com

Page Examples where Category and Parent are showing but should not be:
Soccer Drills
Football Drills

In both cases they have the same set up as shown above but they both display still!
Attached image of set up and also the screen shot of the page showing them still. They were not displaying earlier, something happened?? :(

Menu items settings override the settings used in Joomla articles which, in turn, override global settings.

In order of priority:

1) menu items
2) articles
3) Global Configuration

Thanks, I have the article settings and menu settings both set to not display the parent and category but they are still displaying? Here are the admin settings for the page:
U12 Soccer Drills

So it seems they are not overriding the global settings? :(

Here are the page and menu settings for that page:

1) What are the "global" settings? Have you tried to change them?

2) Do you have a hidden menu item somewhere that is using the global settings?

The global is set to display these (as I have hundreds of pages where I do need to display them) But a handful of important pages I cannot have them displaying, as they are currently.

Attached are the global settings. Its not just for this one item, it happens to other articles with thee settings also:
Here is another example with the same settings:
https://www.professionalsoccercoaching. ... l-training

The first time I set them up they did not display, but now they do for some reason.

Global is yes, but article and menu are both set to no.

I'm so baffled.....??

My guess is that you have a hidden menu item that uses the global settings. I suggest that you check all your menu items and check the settings for all of them.
