Chris, thanks for responding to my question. I'm getting closer but I'm not there yet.
When the user clicks on "Read more" I have it set up that he goes to a page that contains my website's design, but includes n13/index.php. Is that not right? Because what's happening now creates two problems:
1. There is a "Read more" at the end of every item on my home page, even if there is no content in the item's "Article" box, or full story page.
2. When the next page pops up, it also has a "Read more" at the end of the content, setting up a loop.
Any idea how I can correct either or both of these?
