I need to make a module in bottom with "Recommended articles".. How do I set up a module which example add it to News Display and some of them also recommended? To add it so News display I know I just have to select category and section for News Display, but the problem is that some of them also should be added to Recommended articles?

Is there maybe a tutorial for this, and how to add sections/categories to modules?

Regards Joachim

Hello,

I am sorry I am not sure I understand what you are trying to do. If you are using the default Joomla newsflash modules or popular articles it can only pull from a specified section and category, so  the only way for an article to be pulled in two areas is to duplicate the article.

I am sorry for my bad explanation;)

It should be short and clear now:

What I want do to is that I want to make a colun in the bottom beside Most Popular but a "Recomended articles", so I choose some articles I'd like to have in the bottom, just by picking some out.

I think the only way you could do that is by creating a menu called "Recommend Articles" and in the menu set links to specific articles.

Hello,

You would just create a new menu in the menu manager and then publish that menu's module in the module manager to the desired position.
