What is the CombiNews mode? May 21, 2011 / Updated: Apr 14, 2012
This mode shows the lastest gallery items like images incl. videos and audio or albums mixed within the news section as if they were news articles. The image/album title is shown as the title and the image/album description as the article content. The CombiNews mode has basically three modes:
- Latest images: Entries for all images ever added
- Latest albums: Entries for all albums ever created
- Latest images by album: Entries for all images but grouped by images that have been added within a day to each album (Scheme: 'x new images in album y on date z')
Here an example of the 3rd mode:
First entry is a real article, the second a gallery one.
There is of course also a RSS mode available for CombiNews (see the documentation).
Note since news articles are only sorted by date the CombiNews might lead to unexpected results if you set the image sortorder to "id". Try using "date" or "mtime".
Image and albums and articles are still independend and nothing is changed on your site, except the display. You can use this to easily setup a photoblog or audio/podcast blog for example.
