Why the articles' links do not opening inside the Monthly Archive?

As may of you asked about why the articles' links do not open inside the Monthly Archive we published the below cause.

First of all, let's see what Monthly Archive exactly does.

It provides a list of Joomla or K2 content divided into months and years. It is supplied with a lot of features and multiple parameters, improves user navigation and works as a search tool too. It is great for blogs, news portals, journalists, authors, speakers, and any other content based website.

Ok, let's see now what it doesn't.

It does not replace the core component of Joomla! (com_content) or K2, it only divides the content into months and years displayed with a title and a part of the full text of (intro text) and its image.

Hope the question has been clarified now because a lot of customers asked before.

Feel free to contact us anytime if you have similar questions or need any help with Monthly Archive component and module.
