I am trying to display a few K2 articles from the different K2 Categories on the website's HOMEPAGE. I created a HOME menu and made the Manu Type "Latest Items from one or two K2 Categories" see image



But for some reason nothing gets displayed on the HOME page. However if I create another Menu item with the exact same setup, the articles from the different categories get displayed nicely in the main Content (Component) section.

Can someone please help. What should I do different to have the articles displayed on the Default HOME page.

I am using RS!Penta as my template.

For the life of me I can not get a Blog view of articles on the Home page! Bizzare!

Thank you.

Hello,

The deault menu item should be a K2 Categories Menu item.
In the menu's settings you can select the categories and the menu item's properties.

Yes, that's what I have. I created a new Menu (Home page) and set the Menu Item type to "Latest News from K2 Caterogires (one or more)" and set the options accordingly. But it is not showing up properly on the HOME page.

I am emphasizing the HOME page, because that same Menu setup works if I were to create a regular page, other than HOME page. So it seems that there is an issue with displaying on Components or as Featured items on HOme page. I am using RS!Penta template.

If NO components are being rendered (K2 and default articles), then this is a template issue which should be addressed by the template's devs.

Would you recommend any templates that would render components that I can use as a sample?
Is there anything that I can manually change on the template configuration files to enable components on my template? The help from the developers is much to be desired!! So we are left on our own.

Hello,

Pretty much all templates render the component on the default page.
Depending on your needs you can also browse our templates www.joomlaworks.net/joomla-templates

Finally since I do not know the specifics of the template my answer will be a bit vague.
<jdoc:include type="component" />
This is the code used to generate the component.
It should be wrapped in an if/else statement for the homepage (default menu item). In any case backup before you do any edits.
