Our New 'News Tab' Module Print
Saturday, 20 February 2010 14:29

We are happy to announce the release of our new 'News Tab' module.

This module allows you to display links to your Joomla news articles in a series of tabs, a format popular with many news websites. The module supports articles both from the Joomla core content component and from Mighty Extensions Resources.

A simple application of this module would be to display 'latest', 'popular' and 'featured' articles using three tabs. However this module is extremely flexible, and is capable of far more than that. You can display up to 8 tabs (if you have the space), and each tab can display any of the following types of content:-

  • latest (most recently modified or created)
  • popular (most hits)
  • featured (articles specified by list of id's)
  • random
  • author (articles by selected list of authors)
  • profiled (JomSocial/Mighty Touch integration - show articles by currently profiled user)
  • section (section or list of sections)
  • category (category or list of categories)
  • type (type or list of types - applies to Mighty Resources only

You can control the amount of information displayed for each article, ranging from a simple link, to a short extract with an image thumbnail, to showing the entire article. The module can even display content plugins.

This gives you a great way to highlight your content in a format that takes up relatively little space on the page.
