Can someone direct me to the files that seem to be the problem
Is there another module to do the news functions altogether (categories topics etc)
Thank you kindly

Update: I installed NSN News Universal just to see if perhaps it was a problem with this module. Turns out this did nothing whatsoever to fix the problem.

I backed up the database for
Then I went in the Admin and reinput the topics. That went fine.
Then I went into submit story and tried to put in the categories.
It said categories already existed although none existed in the DB.
Also all the stories were gone so I don't know where else they were stored. I tried to make a category that didn't exist before but that didn't work it ALSO said it already existed. So I added them manually the way they were prior.
So I input my FIRST NEW STORY and things seemed to work okay.
So I input my second story and ALL the news disappeared the way it had before. It seems it disappears one I use a different category other than the first one. I also noticed in the Administration menu Under LAST 20 ARTICLES my first article language is set to 'All' and article 2 is set to 'english'. So I go and Edit Article 2 to set it to Category 1 like Article 1. First thing I noticed is the language changed to 'All' Now both articles in LAST 20 ARTICLES is listed as language 'All'. I check the home again. NOW THE NEWS DISPLAYS FINE on the categories and index BUT NOT IF I CLICK A TOPIC ICON! It seems it all has to be the same to work. So I test this again and go into the Admin and change the 2 stories to make the topics Just the same. Now everything works fine! SO I go and change the topics (keeping both the same still)
Whaty I've thusfar concluded is that it doesn't have a problem displaying news exactly. It has a problem splitting it up over more than one topic (like using related topics or different topics per article) It also has a problem splitting them up over multiple categories within the same topic. To make News work on both index view, category view or topic view all of the articles MUST be the SAME category AND TOPIC with no related topics. If you split it over 2 categories the topics work but not the categories. If you split it over more than one topic the categories work but not the topics.
I have restored my original database now and it is the same with the errors. I hope this information helped you to think of maybe what the problem is.

News News Active (In Home) All Visitors [ Edit | Deactivate | Put in Home ]
You should see a link like above.
Make sure yours says that it is Active in Home.. if not click on Put in Home.
That should work, if not get back to me..

It is Active and in home.
The news displays on Index.php fine.
Its the categories and topics views in the links listed above
Everything works great if I had all the news and topics in one category and topic but when you start to split it up over 2-3 topics or 2-3 categories it starts to fumble,
Checked the SQL
I changed it just to test it...
No difference so I set it back to:

Dear All - that have helped me with this News Issue.
We found the problem to be some problem in the theme.php and we changed the theme (which was hard because we have a heavily modded site) but it all worked out. So if anyone ever has a similar error have them check the theme before going psychotic.
Thanks for all your help. If you PM me a link to your website I would be glad to link you as I am highly greatful for your support. Telli I also want to thank who helped me out too and my new friends. And tank..oh the list goes onnnnnnnn

yeah it is my theme, but I like this one because of the two columns in the middle.
What should I be looking for?

My problem was in the area of theme.php under themeindex. Im not really an expert at it I had to redo that area line by line - and frankly not knowing how. But now that you know the area thats wrong you can go looking for answers from people that would know EXACTLY what code is the culprit. Id look in theme bug forums on various sites. all I did was copy/paste the THEMEINDEX area of deep blue over to mine and then played with the html in between the PHP in that file for hours to get it right. No quick fix here. so It's like - I diagnosed it but I cant really fix it.

I have this same exact problem in 7.4 when using the Odyssey theme. Whenever I use more than one category, the topic listing for that category doesn't appear.
I guess the problem is with the Odyssey theme since it works fine with all the others. Can anyone point me to a solution?
