I am displaying several items in my homepage, which are grouped in a category. Let's say I have displayed several cars in my homepage, all of them are in the category 'Cars'. I have a menu item called 'Cars' which is displaying all items inside this category.

Now the problem is when I click any item (car) it displays in my homepage, instead of displaying in my current menu 'Cars'.

I am using K2, and for my menu item Cars I have it to display K2 » Latest items from (one or more) users or categories where I selected Category 'Cars'.

Why is it displaying my items in my homepage when I click any Car Item?

Best regards.

  • See if the answer of that question works for you. If yes, then this question should be considered a duplicate of that question.

  • Not a K2 expert, but that is not a "category menu item", it is a "latest items menu item". That is not good enough. As Lanah says in his answer you will have to create an actual category view menu item. May 18 '15 at 11:13

Lets start with menu, create this secondary menu:

1. Cars - display k2 category.
    a. Car 1 - display k2 article
    b. Car 2 - display k2 article.

and on your homepage create alias for 1. Cars - display k2 category..

You end up with example.com/cars/super-car-one link to your single article.


  • I don't get it, so you mean I have to create a sub-menu for each item I have?

  • if you don't create sub menu for every item you will get link like: example.com/cars/1-alias that's all. I'm preferring aliases for all my static content, but if you got dynamic content ( articles are added often ) just create alias for category.
