Why do links in modules redirect to the home page?

This is a very common FAQ everyone asks after the installation. I click on a link in the module and it shows the home page. This occurs because you have failed to configure a setting Set Itemid for all modules.

To change this,

  1. Login to your site back-end.
  2. Go to Extensions → Module Manager.
  3. Edit the module for which you want to change. Example, Latest Projects.
  4. Under the Advanced tab or Module tab (for some modules), you will find the setting Set Itemid.
  5. Set it to your preferred and suitable/meaningful menu item. For example, Open Projects.
  6. Now refresh the front page and click on links. You will find the page gets redirected to the menu item set.
