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.
Some ideas where you can use RAXO All-mode PRO:
* display latest news with thumbnails;
* compose a dynamic main page of automatically renewable news blocks;
* display popular or the most commented articles for a certain period of time (day/week/month);
* display your goods/products, or show you portfolio, or anything else that requires format "image + info".
+ Display Joomla articles from section(s), category(s) or just separate articles by putting IDs.
+ Thumbnail Auto Creation from existing images in your articles.
+ TOP Items: emphasize the most important articles by creating particular views and different thumbnail sizes for top items.
+ Display a single or several articles anywhere on your site in module positions.
+ Exclude some items in order not to duplicate those already displayed by another module copy.
+ Better Performance: client side optimization and thumbnail caching make for better server performance on busy sites.
+ Flexible ordering lets you sort the latest news, most rated, most popular articles (13 variants).
+ Enrich your content additional information, such as date, author, section & category names, hits & number of comments, rating.
+ Custom Templates: this incredible feature lets you display content with your own templates - limited only by your imagination.
+ 3 Built-in templates for customers http://bit.ly/bfWtRZ
+ Module multicopy usage
+ Time interval (e.g. show popular news for the last 10 days)
+ Smart title and text limitation (preserves whole words & HTML tags)
+ Show/Hide featured articles
+ External image support (thumbnail creation for images located on other sites/domains)
+ Default image for noimage articles
+ Joomla content plugins support
+ Option to hide module on article pages
+ Friendly Administration makes your developer life easier
All-mode Portal http://bit.ly/91FJuz is well-suited for news portals, magazines and sites with lots of content like MSN.com & CNN.com
All-mode Pagination http://bit.ly/9m2MCU gives you pagination within a module and switches between news pages with nice fade effect
All-mode Carousel http://bit.ly/hLtluH is an eye-catching slider to rotate your best products or featured content
Another point. Rather funny than sad. To change the appearance is necessary to climb in 3 places! Configuration, the CSS, and Php. Probably because that is PRO :))
I prefer GK news instead.
Our module is much better and of significantly higher quality than any free similar. None of a sinlge free module can propose such a wide range of functions as ours.
Number of columns can be any, moreover you can have separate settings for TOP news and ordinary news (e.g. 2 and 6 columns respectively).
All our customers have access to our support forum and tutorials, and they don't have any problems with column settings and other module settings.
We had one issue moving from our test to production environment that turned out to be a phpthumb issue with our directory name. (windows box / phpthumb doesn’t like directories with numbers in the name)
Support from RAXO, was extremely helpful and quick.
Some nice to have features such as having the character cut-off complete the word, or more options for what articles to display (such as related or most viewed) would be great, but from an ease of use perspective, you can't go wrong with this module, a must for any site displaying lots of content.
We've purchased dozens of extensions that we never use, but there are over 35 iterations of this module on our latest site. Well worth the money, to say the least.
Be sure we'll remember your case for long ;)
We like how you use our module in your project. You understood the concept and potential, so you use it precisely the way (multipupose) that we're trying to show and explain to other users.
BTW to show "most viewed" choose "popular first" in the ordering.
Q: Will I be notified for future updates?
Yes, we wanted to create a module that could be applied to numerous tasks, all-purpose module. And customers' feedback tells us that we succeeded.
Yes, all customers get our updates.
Best feature I like - you can assign an individual default image to each piece of content. This was key in order to mantain my site's design integrity - not every piece of content that comes into my site has an image attached to it.
Also, the templating feature of this module is absolutely the best. I just wish you guys had made this thing available much sooner. I would definitely have less white hairs!
Thanks again and keep up the good work Lisa!
