Display a ‘NEWSFLASH’ for Article Content Display
Now that the Article Category module (see instructions above), can display article content, this module type may not be necessary. But it is a ‘simpler’ approach.
A sample use for this is to display a ‘testimonial’, randomly on a page, each time you visit the page a different ‘article paragraph’ can display.
This core Joomla Module has existed in Joomla since Joomla 1.0.
