Hello all.

I am using News 1.21 on my site and i have to say it's easy to use and efficient as well. I use 2 blocks on my top page, mainly cloned "Recent Articles".

However, what i would like to do is make 1 show the LATEST ARTICLE (ONLY THE LATEST) and make the other block show RECENT ARTICLES (NEWS FROM 2ND LATEST ONWARDS).

I'm not sure if this is possible but i think it is by making the cloned block pull its news starting from article ID 2 or something?

Please help me with this as i need it urgently on my site. I would greatly appreciate any help and would repay you as best as i can.

Once again, many thanks in advance.

Sounds like what I'm after. I'm trying SuperSpotLight 2.2, but I needs modding to strip all the unwanted stuff out, especially the tables in the block.

The new spotlight functionality to be released in AMS 2.4 will enable you to do this.

Sounds good, brash. Any chance of knowing when it might be released? I'm looking for a more feature-packed news managment system.

Have a look at this article which gives a bit of detail on the new features as well as planned release dates.

WOW!!! I just read the thread. The features are AMAZING and GREAT! I really can't wait for this release of AMS now. Btw, what is meant by donator release?

Anyhow, the best part was at the last part... "News importer for News 1.x" OMG BRASH YOU ROCK!!!

CHEERS MATE!!!
