How to: Layout of k2 category same as News Show SP1

Featured Lock Resolved
Hello everyone!

I am using NEWS II template and loving it!

In default page I have modules showing news from k2 categories. Their layout is beautiful.

But when I go to "menu" with k2 category layout, it looks bad. I would like it to look like module News Show SP1 looks.

My webpage is:

If you do not know what I want, please ask for more details.

I tried to add module news show sp1 to menu button linked to category of k2. And select only one category I want to show in this page. But If I go to article, it shows module again (logically - it is still under the name of menu)

If I add new menu button with "featured articles" (which does not exist as I am not using joomla articles), and add module sp1 to show k2 categories, it makes new links for articles. ( - before it was: /http://index.php/NAMEOFMENUCATEGORY/article)

Sorry for my English :-)

Thank you for your help in advance!

Hi, first of all thank you for choosing us. The purpose of News - II homepage to show the berief of all news from all categories to the audiences but the individual news page only show the listing of that news category. So, this is not wise ot use module in sub pages to dispaly news.
Thanks for understanding.
