Introduction

News Display, Articles Display

This easy to use module allows you to use an Article As A Module, and also support Front-end Editing. All of the other existing modules we have tried for Joomla do not support front-end editing.

  • Get this

This module was designed by the web designers at Digihaven Saskatoon Web Design in order to make easy edits for people who are not web designers and like to use front end editing. We hope that other web designers and Joomla users find it useful.


It works just as advertised and solved our problem. Only issue I have is the authors website, It can be a bit confusing, and doesn't really instill confidence in the product.


Joomla 3?


Posted on 19 April 2013

On this site it says the module works with Joomla 3.x

To make it install I had to edit the xml configuration of my download to change into and it still didn't work.

After that on the download site I noticed that joomla 3.x was not listed.

I think the joomla 3.x compatible sign should be removed here.

Owner's reply: Not true at all. I just tested the Trunk version and works fine. Select Trunk on the download page and it works. You must have downloaded the 2.5.x.x version. Your comment should be removed.

Great module!

It´s very easy to use. And is bery important to have an also support Front-end Editing.



Recommended.


The module does exactly what it says and I am so stoked to be able to give our authors the possibility to edit modules from the fronted now!

While there was an initial problem of the module when used together with easyblog the Digihaven team found a workaround and made it work for us... have rarely experienced such a support and kind of felt like it digi haven! ;) Thanks so much for all the help and for a great and very useful module!


No ReadMore button

i agree with condor21,,



this module doesn't support articles with ReadMore.



It is so sad such wonderful job with all article Options as core CMS do not support this simple but surely important option, otherwise i will rate it 5.

Owner's reply: This is a flaw of the Joomla core and not Article Module. The Plugins page explains why in detail. It's harsh of you to giving such bad feedback when its not in our control. Blame the design of Joomla, not us.

Simply good

I was searching for a replacement for a module that bring article to module placement as it was starting to throw errors in certain servers environments.

I test most of the other...

I use plugins (google map and others plugins includes in my article) — It work Flawlessly.

What really make the difference is the ability to edit in frontend — This is simply brilliant... It put the Joomla content exactly where it should be and centralized it in the Article Manager. This module should be part of Joomla core and hopefully will be ported to Joomla 1.6 up.

On my template I did have to turn off the modification date in each article in the article manager.

For the people that worry for the readmore I suggest to see how (Firebug) your readmore is built (div, class whatever) and simply repeat that snippet of code in your article and simply put your own link in there. The advantage here is flexibility. You have total control of what is show in the front article and the link to the real article.


obsolete code

Good module, however it uses tables!!! which is obsolete and not 'css friendly'

Owner's reply: Sorry but you are wrong saying "it uses tables". Please examine the source code carefully for Article Module and you will find that in fact it contins no "tables" what so ever. Any tables being output are from YOUR Joomla template since Article Module pulls all the Articles (with templating) directly from the core of Joomla without any formatting (or any HTML other then a "" and "" tag). Please remove your comment as it is missing leading, since it's up to you to not use tables in your templates.

cool

works perfectly and even article plugings like email spam bot protection works fine.


... the module doesn't support articles with ReadMore.

Optimizes images on content pages by caching, optimizing, and resizing them. Making images look better, and saves bandwidth! = Feature Info = Image support: This is intended for: -People who don’t know how to, or want to scale images on pages by hand. -People that don’t know how to convert from formats like BMP to a compressed format like JPG. Rather than waste space this plug-in resizes, and optimizes all images! Example: DigihavenSaskatoonWebDesign.jpg - 3300px × 5100px at 3,333.2 KB But you only want to display the image at 480px × 742px. That’s 3mb for each download! And browsers like IE make the images look ugly when scaled! If you are paying for bandwidth, or on a low bandwidth server, this can be a real pain! Your options? 1) Resize your images before you upload them all. (But others must have to know how to do this, and it takes time, and even more if you have many sizes of the same image.) 2) Use this plug-in, and save yourself time! Even if you use option 1, you should use this plug-in because it stops mistakes. Before: DigihavenSaskatoonWebDesign.jpg 3300px × 5100px at 3,333.2 KB: After installing plug-in: /plugins/content/contentoptimizer/DigihavenSaskatoonWebDesign.jpg is 480px × 742px at 51.75 KB: This is all automatic now! Saving you time and money! This plug-in is a must have! More feature to come in the future! (Read about the alpha version) = Requirements = -Disk write access for plugins/content/contentoptimizer/ (There will be database storage for the Alpha version) -GD version 2+ -XMLReader is included and enabled as of PHP 5.1.0 by default. -Your memory_limit must be high enough for your images to be processed. (Or the will be skiped) = Know working server providers = -Godaddy Webhosting (Contact if you wish to add your hosting provider to the list) This module was designed by the web designers at Digihaven Saskatoon Web Design. We fond that lots of our clients like this easy to use solution on their websites. We hope that other web designers find it useful.
