Layout type "just links" doesn't work in Category View

I've set up an article category on my forum (currently on localhost only) which is to contain several lengthy FAQs. For better readability, I'm trying to display articles in that category as links, but ironically the "just links" layout type is the only one that refuses to work, instead displaying my FAQs as "normal articles".

I've found a similar support request from 11 years ago (sadly, still unanswered).

Perhaps you can explain in detail, what 'refuses' to work for you?

I suspect that the just links layout does not do what you expect it to to, but it does work. In fact the name does not quite explain what it does. The 'just links' alyout is in fact more a 'minimal' layout.

Check out this example, here it is used: https://www.tinyportal.net/docs/index.php?cat=Changelog

But I agree, it is not the most useful layout option...

Personally I like this layout option for a category that you describe:

This is the 'Normal+Links' layout: you use one article as the intro / header and all other articles are just links...
