I copied the template into a template file as described and generally this works, but wehen I use the template, I can not get the more link.
Here is my code in the page:
[catlist id=7 numberposts=1 excerpt=yes excerpt_size=10 thumbnail=yes thumbnail_size=160,109 thumbnail_class="alignleft" morelink="Zum Artikel" template=template-left]
Unfortunately the site is still on localhost, but when you need more information, I am happy to respond.
What could cause this problem?
