June 18th, 2013

Mini FrontPageMiniFrontPage module will give you a lightweight but powerful news headline style of your recent content items or artcles. It’s just not only to show case your latest news item, but you can show any latest or most read articles from preferred section(s) or category(s) that can be set up from the module parameters.

What’s New in the Mini FrontPage v 2.0 :

+ Theme-based layout, choose between Classic mode and Tabbed Mode with jQuery animation support
+ Combine the number of column, row and location of the “More Articles” box and get hundreds possibilities of layout
