Article Placed Anywhere
This module simply displays a selected article in a module position. Put articles anywhere! Articles can be edited from the frontend as well if the user has adequate permissions. You can also optionally display the articles title, category, author, hits, etc.
This has been forked and modified to be Joomla 2.5/3.x compatible from Ian MacLennan's CustomContent Module for Joomla 1.5 (no longer listed in the JED).
