New Updates to Our Featured Items Modules PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 15 March 2010 11:03

We have introduced further updates to our Featured Items Pro and Featured Items Carousel modules.

These modules allow you to display extract from your Joomla articles with an image thumbnail in a variety of formats, including tab panes, accordions, scrollers and carousels.

We have add an option to display the article author plus the creation and modification dates, with the option to control the date format.

The articles can be selected either from the Joomla core content component, or the Mighty Extensions Resources component.

Version 3.0 now features integration with Mighty Extensions Resources. It can display text taken from the text, textarea and html field types, and thumbnails taken from the image or picture field types, as well as images embedded in html fields.


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

We have introduced several new features.

  1. Firstly the entire article intro text can now be displayed, with all html tags, not just an extract.
  2. The module now 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
