“This modules allows for publishing content items or articles in areas other than mainBody(). Choose if you want to display a single item, all items from a category, all items from a section, or a number of content items/categories/sections specified by a comma separated list of ids. Simply enter the content item ID in the module’s parameters field, assign a position to the module, and publish it. You can copy the module and assign a different name, position and contentitem id to the copy. Also includeds a “Read more” link option. With the “merge items” option you can merge multiple content items (/categories/sections) into one document for print and pdf. It will also create a table of contents for merged items (if you want to).”
Download: Content Item Module for Joomla 1.0.xx
Download: mod_contentitem – the same as above, but should fix the problem from comment #18.
If no complaints turn up within the week this will replace This replaces the above download.
Download: mod_contentitem.zip – in this version the ordering system has been changed and improved (I hope). This ist not fully compatible with the previous versions, if you overwrite an existing installation of the module you’ll have to re-enter the ordering information for the items. Update: There was a typo in the XML-File (see comments) which could result in wrong ordering results, should be fixed now. Update: Added a parameter to order by Item id (which should have been there in the first place). Update: Added a parameter “trim introtext” to trim the text down to a specified number of characters. Caveat: This will remove any HTML Code from the trimmed text (so it doesn’t break tags in the middle).
(30/12/07 Some people have reported problems after ths update, so you might wait a little with the download until the problem is resolved). There was problem for people who have open_basedir enabled on their servers, this should be fixed now.
