new article url not loading / global configuration options not showing

Post by galtamas » Tue Jun 19, 2018 5:06 pm

Hi!
I've recently wanted to add a new article to my website but bumped into two weird problems:
1. I can upload new articles, they show up in any place on website listings but clicking on them the URL don't work anymore. Last article uploaded on 17th May worked and any other article URLs still work only newly uploaded URLs don't. I don't know what to do anymore to make new aliases work.
2. As I tried to find something in global configuration I noticed that config options doesn't stay selected, I can not view button states(everything is grey), only dropdown list options are shown correctly. What heapened here?
I'm very new to joomla so I don't know what and how to ask exactly, sorry for that.
Please help me if you have any idea on these two questions.
Thanks

Also here is the actual URL which doesn't work(it loads homepage instead):

The URL was removed because my ISP reports "We think this site may be fraudulent or contain viruses that could be harmful to your computer, so it's been blocked by your account's Web Safe settings."

No the images do not help.
You have not defined "Upload new articles"
Your images suggest that Creating a new page opens the Home page and that settings in Global config can not be edited.
You have also failed to post the results of the fpa viewtopic.php?f=714&t=793531

How can "upload new articles" mean creating a new page? I t means what it says: creates a new article which than can be linked to a menu item or listed in news section. The article can be created with title+content and everything, it appears on admin page in article list and can be edited too. On the frontend is the problem. The URL slug doesn't work. Every time I access the link to see the detailed article page instead of showing me the full article the website reloads to the home page.
The global configuration is a separate problem, on admin page when I go to the global configuration page, I can not see any of the configuration items selected, all the buttons appear gray as if no choice was selected at all.

Re: new article url not loading / global configuration options not showing

Post by toivo » Wed Jun 20, 2018 11:21 am

The session path should be shown as writable in the PHP configuration.

The configuration has three world writable (777) folders. They are a major security risk. Your site may have already been hacked because at least one ISP is reporting that it contains viruses.

Go to the 3.x Security forum and follow the instructions in the sticky posts at the top of the forum how to clean the site and follow best security practice: viewforum.php?f=714

You could also use a service like myJoomla.com, where the first software audit is free.
