Basic Version: News Location Plug-Ins
Configuration: The news Plug-In configuration includes options for displaying news entries such as the number of news entries to display per page and the number of characters to truncate each news story summary to on the main pages which will be linked to the full article. Putting a zero (0) in the truncate field will result in this being ignored and the full story being displayed. Config options also include date formatting as well as the listing order for news entries.
Add/Edit: News items can be scheduled to release on a specific date or number of days if Timed Content Release System is in use. The news editor makes use of built-in HTML support which means you can paste pre-formatted HTML into the text field or make use of the included tag insertion feature to make your news entries more custom and dynamic. FYI - By customizing the Smarty templates, the news feature can easily be used as an internal blog creator.
