hi maggoo, i wish i could post a link but the site isn't live. i could give temporary password if necessary.
i started by uninstalling yj nf 7, cleared and purged cache, reinstalled....
problem still exists. click ANY article and receive 404 error message: article #57 not found.
since this didn't do anything, uninstalling search, news slider 8, and yj nf 6 etc would seem a bit superfluous. it will also mean i will ave to customize them all again.
any other ideas? i could upload the original layout.css file.
other than the module files themselves, the only files i edited have been layout.css, template.css, red.css, and links.php.
