An example of the featured items module, showing one of the tab pane layouts.

This highly versatile module allows you to feature articles picked by id, by section or by category. The module displays a thumbnail plus an extract from the text with a link to the article for each item. The items can be displayed in a variety of layouts, including lists, tab panes, rotators, highlighters, accordions or thumbnails only, with a choice of transitions for the rotator and highlighter. There is a choice of colour schemes. Also the module can use GD graphics for improved thumbnail quality.

The articles can be selected either from the Joomla core content component, or the K2 content component.

K2 Integration

The module now includes support for K2 as the content source. It can display text taken from the K2 intro text, and images taken from the K2 image field or embedded in the text.

 

 

Social Integration

 

The module also includes integration with K2 Users, Community Builder, Mighty Extensions Touch and JomSocial. It can be used to display articles by the profiled user whenever a user profile is viewed.

 

More Features

 

  1. The entire article intro text can now be displayed, with all html tags, or just an extract.
  2. The module supports content plugins.
  3. Also as well as pre-selected categories the module can now display articles from the current category or section. This is a powerful feature that now means that you can do things like display random articles, or the latest articles from the category currently being viewed.
  4. The module can now cache resized images for improved efficiency

Javascript

Some of the module layouts use the Mootools javascript library, whch is the official javascript library supported by Joomla, and which comes as part of the Joomla core. The layouts work with all versions of Mootools used by Joomla, and can co-exist with extensions that use JQuery without conflict.
