    Hi -

    I added a news view module to a page and it shows the list of news items correctly, but when I click on the headlined link, it just reloads the page without showing the full contents of the news item that was clicked on. 

    I checked the video on the news module and the user manual on the news module and wasn't able to find out what I'm missing.

    Can you please help point me in the right direction?

    Hi Harry,

    Try following the steps from the attached video. Make sure that you have not set any property of the control or urlRewriteFormat declared in the provider is not changed

    <cmsEngine defaultProvider="Generic_Content"
                <providers>                        
                    <clear /> 
                    <add name="Generic_Content" allowWorkflow="false" allowLocalization="true" urlRewriteFormat="[Publication_Date]/[Name].aspx" urlDateTimeFormat="yy-MM-dd" urlWhitespaceChar="_" visible="True" defaultMetaField="Name" securityProviderName="" allowVersioning="True" allowComments="false" commentsModeration="true" versioningProviderName="" connectionStringName="GenericContentConnection" type="Telerik.Cms.Engine.Data.Providers.DefaultProvider, Telerik.Cms.Engine.Data" />
            <add name="Generic_Content1" allowLocalization="true" urlRewriteFormat="[Publication_Date]/[Name].aspx" applicationName="Generic_Content1" urlDateTimeFormat="yy-MM-dd" urlWhitespaceChar="_" visible="True" defaultMetaField="Name" securityProviderName="" allowVersioning="True" allowWorkflow="false" allowComments="false" commentsModeration="true" versioningProviderName="" connectionStringName="GenericContentConnection" type="Telerik.Cms.Engine.Data.Providers.DefaultProvider, Telerik.Cms.Engine.Data" />
                    <add name="News" allowWorkflow="false" urlRewriteFormat="[Publication_Date]/[Title].aspx"
                      ...
                                  .....

    Great - thank you. That worked. Now, I'm having a little trouble understanding what I've found in the forums related to the following: How do I change the layout of the news item list? There isn't a master control template like I edited for my blog module.
