Been fiddling about with new - it is great and one thing I came across while mucking around with news is that becuase there is no user controls (not that I can see) for the new elemts (eg. new list, single news item) you can't quite tailor them a whole lot for example:
the news list renders like this:
You can do a bit of customisation using the styles that you have implemented and you can stop showing the More link etc but what if you want to change the layout. We tend to use:
I guess that is just a limitation of doing things that way that you don't have absolute control over the output although it is easier to implement on the site?
It's not a big one but just thought I would raise it. I do love the news module it has all the functionality our client require.
I noticed a could of bugs too:
- When you create a new item and then go an edit it the edit form comes up with no data in the fields.
- You can't set a date as it automatically creates a date for you. A lot of clients have media releases and they put them on the web a couple of days after they release to the public (bad practice i Know) and then you can't set the actual "real" date of the release when it eventually goes on the site.
