Data Source

Under the tab Data Source you have the option to filter articles by:

  • Categories
  • Tags
  • Authors
  • Authors aliases

If you leave these fields empty, then all articles will be selected. Keep in mind that the above filters work simultaneously. This means that if you select a category named Category 1 and a tag named Tag 1, then the module will show articles that belong to both the category Category 1 and the tag Tag 1.
