View Full Version : News Management and Display

This is my first contribution. :) It is sort of like a blog for your site I suppose, but basic.

It creates a management area for news articles, as well as the code to display it somewhere.

It needs 1 table in your database, and a few files. This module will be available in your admin panel, under "Tools-->Manage News". It stores a title, a subtitle, body text, and a date. It also stores a unique ID for the news article in the database which isn't displayed anywhere for the user.

There is a screenshot of the admin management as well as my sites implementation in the zip file.

Or you can see it in action here: http://fusioncontrolcentre.com/FusionStore//catalog/news.php

I tried to make the admin area as updatable as possible. The language file contains locations of all the images used, as well as the text (so it should be able to be made into different languages if needed fairly easily).

I did this for myself but thought I would give back a bit, so I hope I included everything needed and made the instructions clear enough. Enjoy!
