This module can replace such add-ons like "latest news", "popular content", "random articles", "display news", etc. No more need for many strictly specialized Joomla content modules – RAXO All-mode PRO takes care of it all. You save your time and efforts and become more effective.

I did have a problem (which turned out to be of my own making) with modules not showing. RAXO support came up with the solution very quickly and whilst they would have legitimately called me a knobhead for not reading the instructions properly they were kind and supportive.
A highly recommended module that is worth every bit of its very reasonable cost.
The support is excellent, and we are extremely pleased what this module deliever.
The only little "but", is that there are only three options/templates included, and it might be a bit heavy if you have a lot of articles published.
give this a try dont think you will be dissapointed with it, should be 6 star
Some tips to improve the module is the support on templating and configuration. RAXO uses it's forum to help users with configuring problems but doens't include this in a main documentation part of the website. Therefor the step users have to take to ask for support is too big. Creating your own template still didn't work out for us when we tried to include files into the template directory.
It was easy to install, easy to configure, easy to implement and I've used it pretty much everywhere on the site now.
The support is great, I got quick answers to the few questions I had. The forums are great for reading others questions and seeing the solutions. In fact, one question I asked, I figured out the answer simply by reading the forums.
Definitely worth the money!
1) It may be "highly customizable", but that is only from the backend/style sheet perspective - don't get this module if you are looking for something that has an easily configurable interface. The interface is very limited.
2) The "cool" looking examples on their site are not free. They should also tell you that up-front. When you buy the core module, you get 3 basic templates that are pretty undesirable. To get the module to look like what they showcase on their website you have to purchase additional templates.
There are other modules that are capable of doing more and are cheaper or even free.
This is likely a great module for those wanting extensive control and willing to do backend style sheet/template creation, but it is not an easy plug and play module that will give you great results.
When I started working with Raxo it was just so, so easy to get the result I wanted! However, I had a problem, I contacted support and in 5 mins. I had the solution in my inbox.
It is very, very easy to customize both the CSS and the templates. Highly recommended!
Thanks to RAXO!
And thanks to Google Translator - helped me this message write :)
And sorry for my english.
If I had known of this extension earlier it could have saved me countless hours.
Knowing what I know now I wouldn't think twice about it, this is a must have extension.
