Show latest blog posts on frontpage? was created by groovetube
OK, sorry for all the questions but I am enjoying getting everything working. Is there a way to show the latest blog entries on the front page? Not the whole entry but just the title, date, and member who posted, with a link to click to see it? Sort of like a latest blogs module.

Thanks!!!

I guess what I am looking for is a way to show some of the information in a page like www.joomlapolis.com/component/option,com_mamblog/Itemid,42/

as a module so that a few of the titles as titles would appear in a module box.

Ok, I keep replying to myself. :laugh:

Can the latest news module by modified to just show the latest mamblog posts?

Yes exactly.
Need to configure it in the backend to show only the mamboblog section.

Hi Nant,

How do I do this? I looked at the backend but didn't see that option.

In my latest news module (Joomla 1.0.3) the module has a parameter Section Id. You need to find the mamboblog section id in your site and place it here.
