It's been two weeks, and I've even replied to the forum posting further and received no more replies or help with the program I was having. Publicly it looks like they were interested, but in reality? They made no real effort to try and assist with the problem.
Be advised that you can't seem to limit the width of the module by percent, only a fixed amount which is terrible if you're trying to code your site to scale to different screen widths. When you put in a percent it just seems to ignore it and expand the module off the side of the page/screen
What you are seeing in the demo is the MODULE and the settings the MODULE CAN DO.
The Component itself can do Grid or List view of the Layout.
the $link in that line is the url it will direct you too. If your logged in users home page is "mysite.com/home" remove the $link and enter (home)
There are so many things utterly broken by this. For example all my categories are present, but do not work.
If I choose category blog as a menu item and choose a migrated category, the site 404s. If I create a new category and choose that category, it's fine. That means I have to go through and recreate all the categories, but they're right there.
Weblinks required I went through each category and open and save (with changing nothing) to make them work and put them all the links back into their categories.
I almost think I would have been better off learning how to manually migrate the site, because what I'm left with is a migration that transferred very little and of the stuff it did transfer most of it is quite broken and useless.
