This is a very powerful module and I'd recommend it totally aside from it's one major flaw... The problem is you can't tell it not to show on category and section blog views - so whilst it's great having, for example a list of other articles by the same author on an article view page - you can't stop a list of articles from also appearing on the category / section blog summmary pages - which by design already display that info :-(

It does exactly what I needed, thank you very much :-)

There are some must-have extensions that perfectly expand Joomla's basic functionality - this is certainly one of them. I think lots of Joomla users will benefit from this: it's not only a versatile Latest News replacement, but also a perfect navigational aid for every category or section. Very important from a usability point of view: it's is possible to make the current article in the Filtered News list not-clickable or to hide it. Lots of other options: you can filter by category, by section, add pictures or article intro text. To put it in one word: wow!

I needed this module for a site but found a bug so I reported it in the forum... fixed almost instantly and thats not all.. Made 2 feature requests (exclude sections and category's) and they implemented then within 2 hours!!!

Nothing left to say but "wow" :)

I was using another module for a long time but my client wanted something that the reader could control the flow of the news. I knew I had to look for a module that will only display the news of just one module. I found it from the forum, installed it and played around with it to find the right category or section.

Took me about 5 minutes top to configure it and now it's running great.

One quibble: If a web visitor clicked on the number below, then the news ticker stops and doesn't restart until the page reload. It's a small thing but would be nice if there's a certain time out and then the newsticker will restart without having to reload the page.

Also, I tried with W3C validation and there's an error code so I hope this can be updated with W3C corrections.

But all in all, a great tool!

thank you, deafbiz!

I have found the small W3C invalidation cause and updated the current version

Easy to use. Very cool. Would like to see it as a 'related items' module too! :-)

Very easy to install, configure and ENJOY, especially for a rookie such as myself.

Excellent support for any questions you may have and the features in the module are great.

Thank you JV!
Best wishes,

This module displays news (mostread/latest/popular/...) in a way that fits everyone's needs. On a frontpage, it groups them into sections (or categories) and allows them to be organized into specific number of columns and rows. "replace text with category image" is an excellent option that gives a much nicer look to the module itself. On section/category pages, it will filter news based on appropriate section, and displays news from that particular section in a similar way described above.

I'm very glad that developer responded immediately to every request I had about this module, and it's really nice to see such dedication to make this better. With scrolling and sliding functions added lately, I think this could be the one of the most usable module I've tried.

Excellent work, Mr. Vargas. You did a top notch job!

What a fantastic little module. Well several mods... Download and play around with them to get your head around them.

I added three variations to the bottom of my pages, recently added to section, most pop in section and most pop in category. Love it!
