I have installed the following on a Web Host.

PHP-Nuke 7.7
Patch 3.1

On Friday, I then put up about 18 Articles with the default Category of "Article" and published them to Home.

On Monday (today), I created a Category "Consulting", set all the Articles to this Category and set the show in Home as "No".

However, when I tried to set aone of them back to show in Home it did not appear.

Next I created new Articles and put them in Home, but again they did not appear.

Finally I tried everything, I could thing of including deleting the new category that I had created and setting everything back to what I had at the sstart of the day, but NO article would appear in the Home page.

What is going on. Can anyone help me. I am stumped to what to do next.

Regards
Rolf Pfotenhauer

I will try to duplicate this. In the mean time, check your stories table and make sure those rows have 'catid' and 'ihome' fields set to 0

Thanks evaders99,

While I was looking I switched the Theme from "Odyssey" (the one giving the trouble) to "DeepBlue" and the Articles are appearing again. This is strange.

I also checked the Stories Table and I found the following stored there.

Mostly they are set to catid=0 and ihome=0 with the following exceptions:

entry 7, catid=0, ihome=1
entry 11, catid=1, ihome=1
entry 20, catid=1, ihome=0


What does this mean?

I guess for a start that the problem must be with the Odyssey Theme.

Hi,

The ihome field in the $prefix_stories table controls if an story (news) must be published at first page (value 0) or not (value 1).

As I could see two days ago, when I had the same problem (and when I met this thread, searching for a solution), the Odyssey theme uses the number of stories to arrange them in two columns, but there is a little error in the process: in theme.php, there is the following sentence to find out how many stories must be vissible at first page:

$kokku = $db->sql_numrows($db->sql_query("select * from ".$prefix."_stories LIMIT 0, 30 "));

(kokku must be number in estonian).

In that sentence, the stories that are present in the table but avoided from publishing at first page (ihome != 0), are erroneously considered. I solved the problem for me, using that other line:

$kokku = $db->sql_numrows($db->sql_query("select * from ".$prefix."_stories where ihome='0' LIMIT 0, 30 "));

I expect it will be useful.

Just don´t use theme Odysee it has several bugs and don´t work proper when you use the multilingual feature for your website.

Of course, what Susan says may be an other solution. Here, in Spain, we say "Muerto el perro, se acabó la rabia" ("Dead the dog, no more rabies").

I agree that there are themes better programmed than Odyssey; for example, the name of theme is hardcoded in Odyssey, so, if you want to clone it with a different name to customize it (as I did), you must change all the occurrences of Odyssey. Also, the poor multilingual support, I think is caused by the lack of macros. In the other hand, its appearance is very clean.

Anyway, thanks for the advice.
