Automating tasks is key to managing a Joomla website faster and more efficiently, improving the user experience while making content maintenance easier. RiNewsflash Module is a free, dynamic extension for Joomla Content Management System designed to meet a need for automation by displaying the latest text additions from a selected article.

This Module is perfect for website owners who want to highlight the latest announcements or content changes without having to create a new article every time, making it easy for visitors to stay updated on the latest or new information. If your website content includes short updates, such as news headlines, then you can have them all gathered in one article and this module will display a select number of updates from that article anywhere you choose on the website.

Key Features

  • Dynamic Content Display: Automatically fetches and displays the latest updates from a specified article.
  • Customizable Updates: Allows setting the number of latest additions to show, tailoring the module to fit your site's design and content strategy.
  • Flexible Layout: Includes options for adding a custom link to the full article, complete with customizable text and CSS class for the link, ensuring seamless integration with your site's design.
  • HTML Markup Rendering: Processes content through Joomla's content plugins, ensuring that embedded media, formatting, and other plugin effects are rendered correctly.

The plugin is compatible with Joomla versions 3.X, 4.X and 5.X, running on PHP 7.4 or higher.
For the plugin to work properly and efficiently, please note that each update in the article needs to be separated from the previous one with an HTML tag < hr > or < hr / > as this way the plugin can count the number of updates it will display.

Most updates to the Citizen and Business Ombudsman's Observatory are made at the level of Municipalities and Regions as they concern actions they take regarding the Ombudsman institution, so the corresponding articles or other points where there is historical information are updated each time.

However, due to the large number of Municipalities as well as Regions, which may carry out actions concerning the institution of Ombudsman quite often, it was deemed appropriate to gather these updates with the newest actions in a separate article, in the form of a news calendar. So, RiNewsflash Module was created to essentially automate the display of the latest updates made to this article, on a selected page (which in this case is the Home page).
