Joomla articles in front page won't display mult

My page at www.tgfc.org won’t display multiple front page articles. The front page is set to current news; coming events and meetings are published and selected as front page, but fail to appear in the front page. Any ideas! Regards, Chris.

Is the default menu item - i.e. go to yoursite.com/administrator
login
navigate to menu - main-menu - click on item called current news
this is the item ( I think you are using as yoru home page)
is teh menu type FRONTPAGE - you need to do this to make it show front page items

Otherwise create a new menu item - called home - lmake it type FRONTPAGE  - save
then form eth list of menu items chekc the littel box next to the hoem item and set as DEFAULT - top right - so it has a star next to it

ok to change current  news to  link to the front page - go to menu - main menu - click on current news and where it says type - there is a button - CHANGE TYPE - click on that and select under ARticles - FRONTPAGE - FRONTPAGE BLOG LAYOUT

Thank you, it now works, I’m only new to Joomla and finding lots of small issues, I see you are in Sydney and run classes on Joomla maybe I should attend one, One thing that would be useful would be a book on these simple solutions like your website has on latest J tips. Anyway thanks for your help. Regards, Chris.
