How DO I..... link headlines to news story

Postby ArkAngel » Tue Dec 04, 2007 5:46 pm

OK.. need help on a few items here. I looked through the addon'sbut not sure what i'm looking for.

I just got Coranto installed and it looks great and I'm pretty sure I can use it.. but.. i need to change how it works slightly.

What I need is to have a news headline on my main page and then when you click the link of the headline it takes you to the news-story. Is there an addonor two that do this already?

Start reading here, and also search the forums for any particular things you wonder about.

Feel free to ask if there's something you don't understand. Just don't make us re-type things that have been explained hundreds of times before.

And welcome to Coranto :)

The only addon you'll need is the Category addon, which is allready included in the Coranto install. You'll need to enable it from Administration -> Addon manager though.

The link I gave you spouts the following link:

http://www.sumaleth.com/coranto/ct_headlines.html

... which explains how to set up headlines that, when clicked, lead to full stories.

There are several ways to do what you want to do. If late ron you want Coranto to create static HTML files (instead of just showing dynamic news pages) you might consider the Maginot addon.

You may want to read this. It shows how to use viewnews.cgi to view the full story after clicking on a headline link.
