Step 4
Fill in the field CUSTOM LAYOUT it is EXTREMLY IMPORTANT and very easy
JUST CLICK AND DRUG

Custom layout which used in this example is the following:
<a href="[link]"><div style="float:left;width:200px;height:130px;overflow:hidden;margin-right:10px;margin-bottom:10px;">[image:200,130]</div></a>
<div style="margin-right:20px;">
<a href="[link]">[articletitle]</a>

<p style="text-align:justify;">[article]</p>

<p style="text-align:right;"><a href="[link]">[readmore]</a></p>

</div>
Step 5
You need to name your profile as you want, I called it "2 columns position" for example.

Step 6
Save your profile

NOW YOU HAVE A CATEGORY BLOCK PROFILE

THIS PROFILE WE SET UP ALLOWS YOU TO SHOW THE ARTICLES IN 2 COLUMNS, 30 WORDS EACH ARTICLE WITH PHOTO and read more ... active link (REMEMBER IF THERE IS A TABLE IN THE TEXT AND THE PHOTO IS LOCATED IN THIS TABLE, THIS PHOTO WILL NOT BE DISPLAYED IN THE CATEGORY BLOCK MAIN PAGE, ONLY WHEN YOU CLICK "READ MORE..." )

Now what you need is create a category of the articles, in my case this Category name is OUR SERVICES as it is displayed above the group of articles in the page.
When you have 2 or more articles in this category. You need to create a NEW menu item. You should chose MENU ITEM TYPE - Category Block. Then chose the category you want to display and finally very IMPORTANT you should CLICK ON the next bookmark COM_MENUS_EXTENDED_ FIELDSET_LABEL and then SELECT SAVED PROFILE and chose the profile you just created. You may create different profiles.
