Introduction

News Display, Articles Display

Display News by BK module is integration in one tool all that are need for content publishing: miscellaneous orderings, reach filtering and flexible output (by user defined template). This module also may be used for show content of specific author, news of today and many others. Content items can be positioned vertically and horizontally. User defined format is the best feature of this module. You may compile output from content item elements and html tags. It gives you ultimate flexibility for content presentation. Also module supports different style families: content items styles, tables styles and Display news dedicated styles. This Module is based on Rey Gigataras's Display News Module.

  • Get this

For upgrade install it over old version.


The module is not appearing at any place except left sidebar where only the title of module is showing (using Joomla beez_20 template, version 2.5). I understand that there might be some problem in my understanding.


Thanks a lot for your work! I'm using a DisplayNews module on nearly all my pages! I recommend it!


Thanks for this valuable module.



Because it's non MVC I though it wasn't worth the time to evaluate it. I was wrong.

This is an article display module that works and can be configured in effortlessly. There are plenty of options, but the author has been good at keeping them logically grouped.

Unlike other modules I tested, this one is capable of clean and simple layouts - a rare thing today - and more elaborated ones.

If it was MVC it would be at the top of the category.


excellent indeed

5 stars are not enough for this module, as it is very capable and highly customizable. Once I got how it works, I used it to show "relevant articles" (according to their metadata keywords) as well as "other articles by the same author" which was equally powerful and very easy to configure. Eventually I replaced 2-3 other modules I used with DisplayNews, since it could do everything there were doing, and much much better.

Excellent module guys, keep up the good work.


hi

i tried this extension only for one feature : being able to limit the number of words/characters in the introtext, but sadly it seems to be the only feature not working with joomla 3.1 as, whatever number i input, even 5 characters, i get the full text displayed...


This module is a really great one. But it's non-MVC design makes it hard to customize it. It has some conflicts with gantry framework template after I upgraded it from 2.1 version to 2.5 version.


Thanks a lot, this is what I am looking for a long time. Works like a charm.....can't ask for more.


super !

Exactly what I need, a great mod.

I am now looking for a french translation, if not I'll do it.

many thanks, I donate quickly.

Exactement ce que je cherchais, il y a tellement d'options qu'il faut passer un peu de temps à dompter le module.


Fantastic!

Not Working

Nice options. Would not work for me. I could only get it to show module title and Oops! message. Tested 2.2 and 2.3 with exact same results. Joomla 2.5.8. Moving on.

Owner's reply: It means that your articles selection filer doesn't return any article. It causes usually when conflicted filters are selected. For example: some specific section and an articles from other section are selected.
Simply change article filtering.

BK-Thumb is a multi-purpose image plugin for Joomla that can automatically create thumbnails and popups of the original images, as well as resize the full-size images or add a watermark to them. It can even scramble the images names so that people cannot guess their original non-watermark locations. For articles shown in blog mode, it can create a link from the first image to the full article for better user navigation. It can also create a simple photo gallery from any folder by just including one of the images from the folder and give it the description (alt text) "mt_gallery" (or using the new tagging feature). See the examples and how-to's below for inspiration and instructions! Please note that when you use BK-Thumb for the first time on a given page, the server has to process all the images which might take quite some time. The same applies when you clear BK-Thumb's cache. For upgrade install a new version without uninstalling the previous one. Release 2.5.0: iLoad gallery prettyPhoto slideshow Image grouping for slideshow Resizing images to user defined size More watermarking control Gallery image caption control Leading images size Release 2.4.3: Shadowbox support was added. thickbox no more supported. prettyPhoto support was added. Configuration for blogs and articles was separated. Transparent color support was added. Support image type of generated images was added. IPTC Caption support was added. Slimbox, prettyPhoto and ShadowBox full control was added. Watermark article category parameter was added. Bug fixing.
