latest news extended

hi there, i wanted to see if you could add some functionality to the latest news extended module shown on my home page.

http://www.coopersoftware.co.uk/

you recently added an option to exclude article ids which is great, however i need to show certain articles for first 2 thumbnail image sections on left, but to do this i need to esclude all articles in between to achieve this so missing out around 6 articles that i need to show on right hand list but are excluded so i can achieve the 2 left hand thumb section. can you think of a way that you can choose what articles show on the 2 main thumbs images on left and the right list flows as per the most recent?

this would work best for me, so a section where you can add what ids show in thumb image 1 and thumb image 2 ?

is this easy to do?

Dave

    Did you mean some kind of sticky function for the article display?

    Hi

    no just want to be able to control what shows in the 2 thumbnail image columns on left, if i want to show a new one for example and then an older one next to it, everything in the middle has to be excluded to achieve this which i dont want.

    can you do something like,

    THUMBNAIL 1 : ADD ARTICLE ID
    THUMBNAIL 2 : ADD ARTICLE ID

    Then the right hand list juts works as normal off the most recent articles, that section is fine, currently missing lots of my news to try and get the 2 correct news items showing, exclude id being added is good but need even more control to what shows and what doesnt

    hope that makes sense

    cheers
    Dave

    Hmm unfortunately this is not possible without modfiying some parts in the code and I can't add that that feature to the module because it's too specific to your needs, and also it's not related to the main function of the module, to display latest joomla articles in some extended ways.
    But I think you can achieve it by publishing two module in there. One for the two articles with thumnails, one for displaying the more articles list
