Hi there.

I have the same problem as the OP in the following post:

http://www.artetics.com/index.php?option=com_fireboard&Itemid=5&func=view&id=15023&catid=55


I have the news ticker showing on every page and when I click on an article, it updates the current page with the article. I want it to open a new page with no link to the page that was showing when the ticker was clicked.

For example, on my website here: http://maltonsport.org/pixel/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=110&Itemid=875

The ticker is at the top, if you click it it opens the article on the facilities page, even though it has nothing to do with that particular page. How would I get it to open on a stand alone page on the site?


Many thanks in advance

Adam

Hi,

Do you mean facilities menu item should not be highlighted?

Kind of yes. It would be nice if it would create its own stand alone page without using the current page as the parent page - it has nothing to do with the facilities, or any other menu page (if you know what I mean?).

If you look at the breadcrumb on this page:

http://www.maltonsport.org/pixel/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=111&Itemid=878

it makes it look as though that news article is about the 3G Football pitch when in fact it\'s nothing to do with it.

One last thing, is there a war to remove the title \'Article\' from the new page? We\'d like it to just show the article title.

Please add the following CSS rule to modules/mod_artnewsticker/css/style.css file:

#jsn-mainbody-content-inner4 h1 {
display: none !important;
}

and clean your browser cache.

How would I go about putting a sidebar on this new page? Normally I\'d just assign the sidebar module to the page but this new page isn\'t a menu so I don\'t know how to do it.

Or, if this is not the menu item, what is the position of the module? sidebar?

Hi, Ive also got this problem, was hoping the solution would be in the thread but as it was solved by private email I wondered if you could point me in the right direction. Ive tried editing the JRoute line to include the menu id (302) but just end up with two ItemIDs in the URL.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Mack,

I don't know if you ever solved this, but I had the same problem and I think I've got the solution. On your site, in modules/mod_artnewsticker/mod_artnewsticker.php there's a section of code that looks like:


foreach ($rows as $row) {
echo '<li class="news-item"><a href="' . JRoute::_('index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=' . $row->id) . '">' . $row->title . '</a></li>';
}


That's where it's getting the rather simplistic link from. With the help of a look through the Expandable News Ticker code, I've changed mine to this:


foreach ($rows as $row) {
$slug = $row->id.':'.$row->alias;
$catslug = $row->catid.':'.$row->category_alias;
$link = JRoute::_(ContentHelperRoute::getArticleRoute($slug, $catslug));
echo '<li class="news-item"><a href="' . $link . '">' . $row->title . '</a></li>';
}


Seems to work for me, assuming this is the same issue you were having. You could also add a 'target="_blank"' in the href here if you felt like it.

HTH
