I would suggest to add a character limit for article, so that people who do not use joomla read more can specify how many character they want to show on the article.
Also, show the category, number of comments at the bottom of the article. I only saw that option on the K2 version
Other than that it is a good module for displaying your news throughout your site.
The blog extension is very nice, it has all the bells and whistle you could ask for.
kudos to the team
Thanks for your great reviews!
