This exclusive extension is a complete rework of the original "News/Blog" module by FidoX (and many other). The code has been further improved and new features have been added. Amongs the new features in front-end, "AddThis" buttons have been added to the News pages, the stylesheet has been improved, the complete "Colorbox" script has been added for backward compatility with older versions of Opencart, and the whole html is W3C XHTML 1.0 valid. On the Admin side, the News article list returns the image and the number of views for each article.

TRANSLATIONS:
This module has been designed for the default English language and French Language.

This is a very simple procedure but assistance can be provided if necessary.

This module is freeware and provided as is, there is no support as such, but I'm happy to answer your questions.
