I understand; my tweaking templates has tweaked more than one application to death ;-).
Right now, I’m a little slammed, so unless you seriously intend to use the application, I’ll put doing a test-install on the back-burner for now. If your feeling on using the program changes, just post back and I’ll try to find time to do an install to see if I can figure out what might be happening.
Just a thought, since you referrenced Joomla in you last post, have you considered using Joomla Newsfeeds to grab just career related articles vis rss/atom for your site?
That way you could control your content easily enough by tweaking the parameters of your feeds.
