Module articles

Use the Articles module to include a list of articles in a wiki page. Unlike the last_articles and top_articles modules and the plugin PluginArticles, the Articles module will show only the article's title.

{MODULE(module=articles,max=XXX,topic=XXX) /}

If you want to show all the articles of the topic a or the topic b, tou need to use topic=a+b. If you want not to display the articles except those with topic a or b, you need to use topic=!a+b. The same feature and syntax applies for topicId and type.


This code:

{BOX(bg=>white)}{MODULE(module=articles, more=y, max=5, start=1, title=Most Recent Articles, topic=!News+Help Wanted) /}{BOX}
Produces on this site:

Most Recent Articles

Note that article types News and Help Wanted are excluded, the first article of an included type is skipped, and a custom title is used. Click on the "More..." link for the complete list of articles to see how the articles were filtered.
