    • ok, so I changed error level to maximum and this revealed notification errors coming from the search component. I then realiused this was because your joomla version was out of date on v3.9.22 - so I updated uyou to latest v3.9.24 and this fixed that.

      Let me explain one example of why this happens...

      Let's go with a search term of "abbrev" which shows a result of one article called "List of abbreviations". You will see that the search term has a url of "/en/the-grants-b/list-of-abbreviations" - this menu item exists in your "Norway grants - English B" menu as menu item "the grants B" > "list of abbreviations" - this menu item has the black colored "Grant english B" tempalte OVERRIDE. So that's why it's black. You also have the exact same article targeted by another menu item too... in the "norway grants - English A" menu as menu item "the grants" > "list of abbreviations". - this has the "gant english A" template OVERRIDE assigned which is white. So that's why when you pick the menu item from the menu you get the white coloured page instead.

      So basically, you need to have distinct articles for each of your "grant a" and "grant B" menu items.

    • Can't be helped... at the moment it's ambiguous which menu item you're trying to use - and since they are both using alternate override templates that explains the color differences you see.

    • I've explained why...

      search is just looking through the articles to find a match, once it has found an article it looks for a menu item to render it in, you have two, it can only pick one.

    • Not sure how many more different ways I can say the same thing...

      Look at the breadcrumb on the page when you open the article from the search - that tells you the path of the menu items Joomla is matching (and using) to render the article shown. That is using the "b" style layout because that is the override tempalte assigned to that menu item.

      Again, this has nothing to do with any RT products, this is just how Joomla works.

    • Sorry but I have no other words to explain this to you... please go back and read all my previous comments. Also, it's how Joomla works - if you have questions about the workings of joomla please ask in the joomla.org forum.

      None of this relates to any RT products - it's pure Joomla.
