Mini Frontpage Pro

Mini Frontpage Pro is the extended version of the Mini Frontpage module, which is an advanced news display module for Joomla. It displays Joomla articles from selected categories with dates, thumbnails, and excerpts in various designs and layouts. It is simple and easy to use. Additionally, it comes with many configurable parameters that help you quickly create an attractive news block for your Joomla website

Features

  • Multiple item support: You can publish multiple Mini Frontpage Pro modules on the same page.
  • Responsive Design: The module will look good on any device.
  • Flexible parameters to suit your needs: From basic parameters such as article category source, show/hide introtext with trim function, and articles filter, to theme-based parameters like 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 Pro 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 modifying the physical file.
  • Generate thumbnail from external websites/sources.
  • Time ago date format.
  • YouTube as item background (depends on the theme).
  • Joomla 4 ready.
  • And more.
