Filtered News is a Joomla module that allows you to display article guides at the module location. It has all the configuration missing from the standard Joomla module Newsflash and new features: multiple display layouts, configurable content elements, text character limits, including images.
More than once, I have been working hard to address the limitations of the Joomla Newsflash and What's New modules. These two extensions only provide a basic display of news items and are severely lacking configuration settings. Necessity is the mother of the invention. Fortunately, it has driven JoomlaVargas developers to develop this great module, including all the features of Newsflash and What's New and more.
The following is an example of the Filtered News module. The box on the left uses the news scrolling layout. News items change every x seconds. The box on the right uses a normal list layout.
This Joomla module is a great way to display fresh content and do it in style. The following is a list of its main features:
- Installed and "out of the box" without any problems.
- Easy to configure
- A variety of display layouts. The slider and scrollbar layout is particularly good
- Count: Controls the number of articles displayed
- Order: Order, random, latest, hottest
- Only articles from the past X days. Show articles within the number of days you specify
- Image resizing. If the article has an image, you can choose to include it and resize it. You no longer need to make sure the thumbnails are included in the introductory text. Filtered News will resize and use the first image it finds in the article. How much time is saved!
- By section, category, author, recent days, keywords, homepage filtering
- Specify height, width, background color, border, fill
- Specify the article elements to include: image, title, text, author, date, category, section, readmore
- Limit the number of characters to display from the text
- And more! There are too many configurations to describe
I highly recommend this module. It can get the job done and get everything you get from the free Joomla news module.Natural Insomnia Program - Blue Heron Health News (view mobile),Click here! Breaking News: New Copy Crushes It! -- Article-style (view mobile),Click here!
