Module frontend page shows 404


I am creating a module called article following the article in

At the end, i created the file articles.php within /application/views/ directory, but the site returns 404 not found.

Can you please help me with it?

Here are my some code:
$config['modules']['articles'] = array(
'preview_path' => 'articles/{slug}',
'display_field' => 'title',
'sanitize_input' => array('template','php'),

class Articles_model extends Base_module_model {
function __construct()
function form_fields($values = array(), $related = array())
$fields = parent::form_fields($values, $related);
$fields['content']['img_folder'] = 'articles/';
$fields['image']['folder'] = 'images/articles/';
return $fields;

class Article_model extends Base_module_record {
public function get_url()
return site_url('articles/'.$this->slug);
public function get_image_path()
return img_path('articles/'.$this->image);



  • Your model and declaration in MY_fuel_modules.php will give you access to edit the data within Fuel admin.
    Your view should be used in conjunction with an Articles.php controller to give access to it on the front-end (public side)

  • The preview path set for the module is articles/{slug} and there is likely not a view file specified at views/articles/my-slug-value.php. There are a some additional ways to fix this (along with almostcompletely's recommendation to use a controller):

    1. Setup post pages configuration:

    2. You may also try adding the following to MY_fuel.php to route all requests to articles/{slug} to the views/articles.php file where you can have logic in your view file to grab the slug value (e.g. uri_segment(2)).

    $config['max_page_params'] = array('articles' => 1);

  • Thank you @almostcompletely for your response.

    As per your suggestion, I did the same and created a controller named Articles.php and now my url is and I created a method like:

    public function index($id) {
    echo $id;

    But still I got 404 not found.

    What else did I need to do to achieve the view page.

    I need to list a articles in one page and I need to display single article in another.

    Can you please show me the right path? Also, do you have any complete example?

    Thank you so much and still I am waiting your response.
