The homepage layout somehow got changed, the announcements used to be in the center of the Homepage and when I added a new announcement, all of the announcements got moved below the info that is on the right side of the Homepage (the sign in block, the Who's online now block, the Profile Updates block, etc.) I cannot find a way to rearrange the items on the homepage. And I don't know what I did to cause this problem.

This linkname (shown below in quote) needs to be shortened by using a SHORTNAME vs the full url. Just like this forum, type a shorter name, select it and then pick the Link Icon on the upper right, 2nd row in the Editor.

This is the line to change:

Here are detailed instructions to accomplish what Jack is saying. Do these steps in order.

Under Admin Functions, click on Edit Site Pages.

Under Home Page, click on Edit Page.

In the phrase "Check out their website for their menu, etc.," highlight "website" by dragging your cursor across "website" and releasing it.

In the image editor, second row of icons, click on the "Link" icon, the third icon from the right.

Highlight "https://mission-bbq.com/index.php?option=com_jbusinessdirectory&view=companies&companyId=97&Itemid=240." Copy and paste it into the Link icon box.

Click "OK."

Delete "https://mission-bbq.com/index.php?option=com_jbusinessdirectory&view=companies&companyId=97&Itemid=240." You no longer need it.

Click "SAVE CHANGES."

In summary, you can't have the long URL "https://mission-bbq.com/index.php?option=com_jbusinessdirectory&view=companies&companyId=97&Itemid=240" on your home page. You have now created a shortcut to this link, which takes you to the Mission Barbeque home page by clicking on "website".

You may visit our site's home page to see many examples of shortcuts.
