however when I look at the source code of the displayed page, the target reference isn't there. Is this the correct file/line to modify?
Preferably, what I'd like to do it direct the link to a pre-defined 'news' page showing the whole story. If I can edit the line that creates the link for the Full Story text, I think it would be possible. The file/line above however, does not seem to be the right place.
Thanks for the reply. I can't seem to find this section of code in any of the files though. I can't seem to identify where the template code it stored.
Looking over this code block though, it does seem like the right spot to send the news story off into its own page, but I don't think I'll be able to make my final result from there.
I've looked at hundreds of news apps like this, both free and commercial (which would be fine with me too) and yours is one of the finest I've found...but I need it do just a little more.
Specifically, I must find a way to list the news "headlines" on my main page, but link to a different page to show the actual story. I'm hoping I can fudge this code to do that by using the category functions, but I'm beginning to think it may be a lost cause. While I'm not a great PHP coder, I am competent, so I was/am hoping to find a way to do this.
What is your gut feeling? Am I trying to do something that will take lots of modifications to work? Would I be better off spending my time looking for something else?
Please understand I'm NOT complaining. I'm just trying to figure out the best use of my time. If the mods to N-13 News are doable and not to difficult, then I'd prefer to stay with this app. On the other hand, If its going to take a lot of work, I might be better off spending the time and money to find something that already works as I need.
I don't see any mention on your site, but would you be willing to make custom modifications on a paid basis?

By editing the template what I means is, once logged into the admin area, if you goto Options > Templates > edit the template you've currently got selected. Here you'll see the "News Structure" section I mentioned in my previous post. Simply paste the code in there.
Displaying headlines and having them open/display the news on a seperate page is possible and wouldn't be that complicated to do.
Regarding making modifications to suit your needs on a paid basis. This is certainly doable and I'd be willing to spend the time modifying the script. If you'd like to discuss this further you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively if you use windows live messenger you can add me on there with the same address.
