For about 40 hours into learning Drupal...
At one point I followed this
adjusted it to my D7 setup and got the result I wanted :-)
Now hours/days later I noticed that the block that displays the list of News_items on the front page is no longer 'working'.
I played with tlp.php files - views - blocks etc - NO IDEA what/when/where triggered the fact that this block is no longer being rendered :-(
Going through things to find the issue but running out of ideas as to where to look.
Here is what I have checked & double checked :
Structure - Content Type - news = Published , Promoted to front page
Structure - Views - news_list - Filter criteria = Content: Published (Yes), Content: Type (= news), Block Settings Access: None (= no restrictions)
Structure - Blocks - my adjusted theme - news_list-block/configure:
- Pages is restricted to Front - Content Types = news - No other restrictions ...
Under admin/content I see 3 items of type news with status published... + Promoted to front page is ticked on.
Now I have played a bit with tlp.php files in my theme but returned back to defaults (I believe).
I switched to bartik briefly to make sure and got the same "no-show" there.
The 'News' page show the 3 items - no problem.
It is the damn block I lost... misconfigured... I think...
Suggestions? I don't want to delete all 'news' related node/block/view and start over again - would like to find why it is not showing and learn from it...
Thanks a bunch.
