Using a News Feed with Joomla and Mambo

It’s easy to add a newsfeed to a Mambo or Joomla website. The normal place for them is on the right hand column of a 3 column layout. In this example we’re doing just that.

  1. To get started login to the admin panel
  2. Click on Modules, then Site Modules and you’ll get a list of all the modules you have installed.
  3. Click on the New button – no need to select a type or copy an existing module, New will do it all.
  4. Fill in the new screen with the required information.
