News 1.4 / Xoops 2.2.3

Hi All,

Quick question : I'm using XOOPS 223 on a local development platform (Easy PHP) and have jsut installed News 1.4 from the personal pack.

I've created 2 news blocks to show news items - but I want to switch each of these to show a different topic.

Is this possible to do this, and if so, can you please talk me through this?

Thanks,
Gareth

The easy answere is to search xoops.org for a moodule called "xmspotlight" ... still a beta but works fine ...
It'll give you the option of showing 4 news blocks (by your chosen subjects) ...
If you only need 2 , play a bit with the templates/blocks/news_block_xmspotlight.html file ....

another option is to make a few (2 for your needs) "new news posts" blocks, and to limit them (from the blocks admin) to your chosen subjects/categories ... (duplicated blocks only @ the 2.2.x series)

This is what I am trying to do - can someone please point at the sequence of menu commands that will get me there?

Thanks,
Gareth
