Inserting a single article in a module position

Post by fizznotch » Sat Nov 08, 2008 11:44 pm

I would like to be able to insert a single article into a module position (eg. left , or right) ,

I understand that I could do this by using a custom module instead of an article, but that would be confusing for the folks who will have to edit the content (it would be best if they only had to edit articles)

I've searched on the forum but not found a solution so thanks in advance for any advice you can give

Hi. There are several extensions that I think allow you to insert articles (and other content items) into modules. Here is a link: http://extensions.joomla.org/component/ ... Itemid,35/.

Hope this helps. Mark

I haven't found a really simple way to do this either, but what I've been doing is I assign the article to a specific section and category. Make sure it is the only article assigned to that category. Then I add a Newsflash module in the desired position and give it the category name.
Since there is only 1 article for that category, it will always display your article.

thanks for that suggestion! I hadn't thought of something quite that straightforward
I did find an extension but it was sort of overkill for what i needed, whereas you suggestion sounds just fine

Hi,

I've found a great solution, which does not involve any tweak.

BT Content slider has an option to show specific articles using their Article ID.
