One of my clients wanted to display their press releases in a module, sorted by year. This module did the trick, and the paid version has an option to hide the month - exactly as my client wanted. I had it up and running within minutes. Great little module!

Thank you so much for this perfect module! Makes me sort articles in selected categories into year and months.

Its a major lack that this option is not in core joomla.

Price is also good! Thanks a lot:-)

Just what I needed! Once I figured out the 'only these categories' filtering needed category ids (not names), it worked perfectly. Thank you for your effort.

Hi.Just installed under joomla 2.5.8 and it works,out of the box, perfectly. Very useful since the normal archived article module did not display correctly for some reason. Thanks. Keep up the good work!

This extension does exactly what it claims, and does it well. It is simple enough that it really should just be included into Joomla's core to provide basic blog navigation.
Initially I had trouble getting the extension to update automatically, but this can be achieved by disabling, or setting a very low cache and forcing it to refresh itself.
One small annoyance: when styling the ULs in the CSS for this module, it was difficult to remove the list-style-type (bullet points) because it appears to be coded into the HTML. But this is trimmings really.
I'm happy.

I liked how this module works and was very easy to set up... I will not give 5 star for just one reason... I was not able to choose the categories I wanted to show on my website... I would be awesome, if was possible to select the categories to be show, because in my case I wanted to show only articles from Blog category... Other than that, this module is very nice...

There is an option in the module:

"Only these categories"

It only shows the articles from these categories (give ID's separated by commas, eg: 4,7,99,10)

Works right out of the box, with great support for showing only published posts, only archived posts, or both. Display is similar to WordPress blogs with Year > Month > Article List file tree. Perfectly great free extension. Highly recommend. Using on Joomla 2.5.6

The collapsable tree is simple and straightforward to use, and meets user expectations.

However, it does not seem to work for archived articles only. When I disable "Show registered articles" and enable "Show archived articles", then nothing appears at all. I'm not sure whether this is intentional or a bug. I use Joomla 1.7.

This module would have been a must for blog pages but it doesn't work for some of the menu lay outs (it works perfectly for my front page but not for my blog page)

This module does exactly what it says, quickly and easily. SImple to install, and with a bit of tweaking, easy to configure the styles of the nested lists.
My ONLY wish is one that was voiced in a previous review (Feb 2010) for keeping the previous state of the open folder: " Let's say that you select an article under the "February 2008". After loading the article, the module does not keep Feb08 open but initializes again to the most recent date..." (author:Itsam)
Well done! Five stars

Excellent module, Thanks!

It's just what I was looking for, easy to set up and working with in minutes.

I did notice one thing I would like some help on but the forums are in spanish and I couldn't figure much out. :)

Keep up the good work guys

This should be standard in Joomla!
Module works great with some minor problems:

1. I can collaps the tree but I can't expand it.
2. New articles do not appear in the tree unless I save the module again.
Owner's reply

1. Thanks. Fixed
2. Or unless the caché expires. You can disable the cache :-)

Very easy to install and configure. A valuable module for anyone who wants to display articles that are archived or not featured.

Just whatI have been looking for my website.
Great module.
I was just wondering if there is an option to disable the date appearing before every article title.

I downloaded the module, installed it and had it up and running in a flash. It looked great! It is just exactly what I needed. There is one major issue though, and I can't figure out what to do about it.

I noticed that the articles show in the form of it's own SEF URL, and the big no-no is that it doesn't even append the current page's Itemid, hence when clicking on an article it shows it on a page set to no menu id, making it very difficult to style on certain templates.

To try and solve this issue I went to the support forum. It was all Spanish, but I had a translating app, so no biggy. But I couldn't even make an account with Facebook, or log-in, and the page stalled out twice on me.

I recommend it, but as long as you are aware that the articles that show when clicked in the module will display in a way that you can not attach modules to it (no Itemid)
Owner's reply

The module uses the default method of Joomla to get the article URL:

JRoute::_(ContentHelperRoute::getArticleRoute(id, catid))

And Joomla gives the url (with SEF).

Maybe the problem is that you use a 3rd party component for make the SEF URLs.

You can look how it works in the demo page.

I needed date added in front of the title of the articles, so I posted request to their forum, and oh man, day after they updated official release with that and couple of other options ready to download, so perfect and fast support. Thank you.

This is amazing, works exactly the way it's supposed to and adds a lot to the structure of a site.

I would very much appreciate an option to have all entries expanded. It does have a 'always collapse' that you can set to 'no'. But not 'always expand'. That would be very useful...

Overall, thanks a lot to the developer!

This is a great module, very easy to install and use. It works perfectly.

I just wondered if we could get rid of the "powered by" mention ?
Owner's reply

In the module, you can set "Show Copyright" to "No"

Was looking for a mod that would list the blog posts like Blogspot. Mod performs as described. Easy install and implementation.

Had a similar situation like BoberFett below and had to do the same edit in the helper.php file. Thanks for the fix BoberFett!!!

Other than that ... mod works great out of the box.
