Do i need jQuery?

Yes this module require it.

Text not showing, why?

Make sure you have some text in your article.

I can't save or apply admin settings, why?

We recommend to use Firefox 4+/Chrome/Safari/Opera for admin management. It has some problem saving settings from Internet Explorer

Why do article open on the same page?

When your articles or category of these article not assigned on menu item joomla will open article under home menu item. To avoide this you should create a menu item and assign a category for it, then you can hide the menu item.
