No issues here.
Easy and Powerful
Price is right
Does a good job for simple news features
After a few minutes this was live and working.
Love that it creates a whole page for each news "update".
Was Simple to add custom CSS style too.
You need to stick to standard area names
Is that in the documentation?
Just got it working.
Make sure you update the docs to tell people about this.
Nope, can't get it work. sorry
On another site, it installed OK and it created pages, but they were blank.
No idea about first problem.
It has its quirks, but with a little adjustment you can make this free add-on work very well. If it doesn't work for you pay $25 or more for a (probably) slightly more refined option.
Some things are unclear to me
You can also create a page type, call it “news” per example and write new entries for this page type with “easy news”. This way you can build a news page.
But there’s one thing that makes it unusable for me: You can type in a title, a short text and a full text with wysiwyg, but the news page will only show the title and the short text. If you click on the title, a new page (!) opens, containing the full text.
I ask: Why doesn’t the long text appear under the short text on the same page? It is not so nice if you have, say twenty new pages for twenty news articles. And I could not find a way to fix this.
So, this add-on is sort of likeable, but at least it is not quite the tool that I was looking for. I need something to show news and events for a certain period, and it would be perfect if there were a timer for them so that an article disappears after the event is over.
By the way, “simple news” was also disappointing to me.
Some documentation would be nice
I'd happily rate it higher...if I could make it work.
Anyway I updated that link
Nice job! Thnx Hanicker!!!
Some info about it
I am sorry you did not like it
