Short description

  • Mode: (Normal/Dynamic)– Please select the mode you would like to use. If Normal Mode is chosen, then simply configure the module and it will display a static list of Articles on the menu items you assign the module to. If Dynamic Mode is chosen, then you can still configure the module normally, however now the Category option will no longer be used. Instead, the module will dynamically detect whether or not you are on a Category view and will display the list of articles within that Category accordingly. When Dynamic Mode is chosen, it is best to leave the module set to display on all pages, as it will decide whether or not to display anything dynamically.
