About the Plugin

Joomla module to show list of RSS-Feeds and display linked news pages in a customizable thickbox with navigation (browsing).

Thickbox opens on your page, so the user does not have to leave your site or switch to another window to read all news provided.

Unlike the Joomla built-in DOMIT, SimplePie supports everything from the old-school RSS 0.91 and RSS 1.0 formats, to RSS 2.0 and Atom format, in both 0.3 and 1.0 flavors.

Some more features:

  • UNLIMITED number of feeds (use reasonably!)
  • Adjustable caching time
  • Support for UTF-8 or any character set
  • Allows to override joomla character set or convert RSS feed to default joomla encoding
  • Displayed news titles can be limited in number and characters to be displayed.
  • Tooltip can be limited to display title or title/description (to be limited by word count).
  • Customizable height and width of news browser.
  • Ajax-like loading of news pages.
  • v.2.0: stand-alone module now. Thickbox included. No previous installation required.
