Functionality

Been using it for a while for press releases

Ease of use

Pretty simple to figure out but having an issue with the module title showing up since upgrading to Joomla 3.x. It's selected to show title


Functionality

Nice very basic "news" module, I was able to customize it very easily and that is a "plus". if you are very familiar customizing modules.

Ease of use

Is very basic to use, is lots better than the "native Joomla" new module.

Documentation

Maybe good idea but...

This module doesnt work as in the description: the intro images are not shown. Anyway this module looks quiet exactly the same as the zaragoza news module, with the difference, in the Smart Latest News there is a link to "developer"....

Owner's reply: Hello,
Thanks for tour advice:

1. The intro images are not shown: we have fixed that bug. Thanks.

2. Anyway this module looks quiet exactly the same as the zaragoza news module: Yes, this module is based/forked the "Zaragoza News" module from Aixeena. Credits are in the code pages, as license requirements.

3. there is a link to "developer": that is true, and perfectly compatible with the GNU license.
