This module implements a News section on your site that allows the creation of content by Site Administrators or optionally members who can post, share, and discuss News.
SAMPLE LIST OF FEATURES INCLUDE :
Breaking News - This is a headline news feature that allows Site Administrators to post a news item as breaking news. In the Settings for the module, there is the possibility to configure how many hours will elapse before a breaking news item expires.
Local News - Using the location field, it is possible to set where the news is occurring (for example, where a natural disaster occurred). There are page blocks and a browse page to display local news to a logged-in member whose profile is configured with the same location (City, State or Country) as the news.
Multi-Language feature - For multi-language sites, it is possible to post news for a particular language. When viewing the site, news will be displayed based on the selected site language.
