Great work!
It would be interesting to perform these tests again and have an actual version of the figures.
At that time News and its clone AMS were clearly the best!

Look at the index page of a content module and you'll probably see a list of categories in which the articles site

Horses for courses, as they say.



Naturally there is many ways to do it. But, wouldn't it be easier to use 1 module and let both News and Information be top categories with subtopics? Specielly for all maintenance. The index make it all reachable in a click although centered to 1 index, not 2.

I understand it is a choice to be made, it is still interesting to hear how U think about this.

Is it possible to let each top category (1 module use) have its own "latest postings" lists to be placed on different pages? News category on "Start page" and other categories in other places?

In principle you can clone a block and because you canselect the categories to display in it, you could end up with one block per category. Or you can make a custom one as here on XOOPS France.
For the pages, there the choice is more limited in the sense that there are only as many pages as there are modules. (A module can have several views, but they count as 1 page).

The reach of 1 module

How is a module (news, ams, etc) set to "be" 2 or more views?

Can module blocks be directed to another "module page" or are blocks always bound to its own module-page? [solved] Blocks adm /visible in.
