Mini Frontpage is an advanced news display module for Joomla. It displays the joomla articles from selected categories with dates, thumbnails, excerpts in various designs and layouts. It’s simple and easy to use. It comes with many configurable parameters to help you quickly create an attractive news block for your Joomla website.
- Multiple item support: You can publish multiple Mini Frontpage modules on the same page.
- Responsive Design: The module will look good on any device.
- Flexible parameters to suit your needs: From basic parameters like article category source, show/hide introtext with trim function, and articles filter, to theme-based parameters such as the number of columns, custom date format, and thumbnail position.
- Theme skin: Each theme may come with multiple skins for alternate styles. If you know CSS, you can create your own theme skin and upload it to the Mini Frontpage skin folder.
- CSS adjustment: If you only need to make small style modifications, there's also a CSS adjustment field to add CSS overrides/modifications without touching the physical file.
- Joomla 4 ready.
- And more.
