link from articel to category

Post by renegate » 13 Feb 2013, 09:18

Good morning,
I need some help to set a link from a article to the second category of phocadownload.

There is a menu called "downloads" with severalt categories and second categories and a lot of pdf files.
The menu works good. From menu I can reach all categories like I want.

The problem is: How to get a link from a article with the phocadownload-button to the second categories?

If I open the category with the menu download i get this path:
... /familien-und-bildung-download/category/31-downloads-kindertagesstaette-alban-stolz.html

If I want to open this category with a link form a articel i get:
... /component/phocadownload/category/31-downloads-kindertagesstaette-alban-stolz.html

I can see the category, but with the wrong template and without any menu.
Anything works wrong.

Hope of any help!

Infos:
in Joomla 1.5. everything was fine!
after migration working with Joomla 2.5.8
install phocadwonload new version
install Plugin und Button Plugin
use SEF

Thanxs
Renate

Hy Jan,
I did it again and it works. Thank you!!
Now there is the category with the right Menu. That`s good.

Not working is the right template. There are 5 points in the menu and every point get their own template. I set it over the menupoint and checked it in Erweiterungen/templates. In the backend everything seems ok. But in the frontend seems like every category get any template. Doesn`t which one.

Can you help me, to get this right?

thanks and greetings
Renegate

Hi, don't know how this works, but maybe the templates are assigned to menu link ID (Itemid) so they are displayed on the page where you have the menu link and it can be on different sites the same :idea:
