Data Source

Under the tab Data Source you have the option to select Custom Filtering or Specific Items.

Custom Filtering:

With the Custom Filtering you can filter articles by:

  1. Categories
  2. Tags

If you leave the above 2 fields empty then all articles will be selected. Keep in mind that the 2 above filters work in conjunction with each other. That means that if you select a Category called Category 1 and a tag called Tag 1 then the module will show articles that belong to the category Category 1 and at the same time they have the tag Tag 1.

If you also want to retrieve items from the children categories of the selected categories you must enable the field Child Category Articles.

In the field Items count you can limit the total items shown in the module. Default is 8.


You can also configure the module to hide or show Featured articles, filter articles by date by selecting a time range or fetch only items with videos.

Additionaly you can exclude specific articles from the module in the field Exclude Items by entering the articles id's separated by commas.

Finally you can change the articles ordering in the module in the field Items Ordering.


Specific Items:

If you want to display specific items in the module you must select the option Specific Items in the field Source.

Then add the items of your choice in the field Add Items. If you want to change the items ordering just drag the items to re-order them.



The module is not optimized for RTL (Right-to-Left) layouts. Some of the effects may not work properly in RTL templates.
