Hi,
I have a problem with a new install of K2 on J3.9.3

If I make a change to the category item layout for the list view settings nothing changes on save.

I am trying to set a 2 column 6 item display, but on save nothing changes from the 1 column it came set with. I notice as well that it also makes no difference to the image size selection for the category list. Or if I turn off the RSS feed logo.

Something is not communicating properly.

Hopefully someone has some ideas?

I have cleared the caches and tried in different browsers but that makes no difference.

Regards, Brendan

Unless the category is inheriting parameters from another one (in which case, the changes you mentioned in the categories Display settings will not reflect in the frontend), perhaps your K2 template overrides are missing code...

Hi,
This is a clean install of k2 on a relatively new install of Joomla
K2 is using it's original files and there are no overrides.

I have had this problem before and never found a solution, which always led to uninstalling k2 and not using it.

In this k2 install there is just one category with only 2 items, set to one menu item. So, it's not a complicated setup.

Any other ideas?

Brendan

You do understand that since 2009 we'd probably find such a huge bug.

You're misconfiguring something for sure.

If it's a menu item pointing to multiple K2 categories, the grid layout should be configured in the menu item itself.

If it's not an inheritance issue, then please prepare some screenshots of the K2 categories and/or menu items in question.

Hi Fotis,
Thanks for the info....
"If it's a menu item pointing to multiple K2 categories, the grid layout should be configured in the menu item itself."

You are correct. I was adjusting the settings via the category as this is how I have always thought it was done.

I'll try to remember for next time!
