I downloaded this extension had a quick fiddle with it and was displaying the most recently updated articles in no time at all.

It really is that simple, after selecting the display configuration, embed the module inside an article using the {loadpostion} Joomla plug in.

I had an issue with the commercial licence whereby I was asked, and paid, a commercial fee to post to the forum even after having purchased the Extended edition.

I had a bit of moan about this to Olivier and he advised I should not have paid the extra commercial fee and refunded this within 12 hours.

The forum is great and well attended by the developer (Take heed some of you JEDers out there who think help is an swear word)

This module is swiss knife for display news (articles)
On my page is used on many ways:
on my frontpage for display featured articles, as module for display related articles, as module for display news in sliding animation, as module for display calendar events (because has nice calendar icon for display date)
New versions (upgrades) are frequent, and owner of module Oliver listen to the suggestion of users..
At end, support is really fast and friendly
Go ahead Oliver..

I use this module three times for a music band site and it is working like a charme. Latest News Enhanced Extended is easy to install, to configure and the result is as expected. It's parameter and translation / caption is very helpfull while configuring it. It allows you to let your site view different just using one module in various variations.
On top of that the developer runs a forum and a great help site, is responding fast and always willing to help. Highly recommended!

I've purchased this module to enhance our "What's New" Module. The default options in Joomla are limited, however this module is packed with options that will allow you to create some very creative ways to display your content. It can create Blog style pages using Joomla! loadposition in an article, it can create a news module with background images, calendar tags, lots and lots of great stuff! Can't wait for the update. :)
