Joomla News Module
Does anyone know of a good news module for Joomla that will let users enter news and then display it similar to this page?
Newyddion :: Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Bryn Tawe
Now that the site is nearing launch date, I'm looking for the best way to get news onto the site. Maybe there is something in the package already so if anyone has tips/hints then I'll gladly listen

Are they seperate articles? In which case users who are set to publishers are able to add them via the frontend if you create a registered article submission link on the site.

I still haven't found any handy news modules for Joomla. I'm considering asking our news posters in school to use Wordpress and then get the commercial Joomla>Wordpress integration module to feed it into my school design.
Has anyone done this?
corePHP - 'corePHP' WordPress Integration for Joomla 1.5 - Joomla! Extensions Directory
or this one maybe:
openWP - Joomla Blogging Options - Alledia

I found out today that they actually use a Wordpress site and have a script that pulls it into their custom made cms.

Sorry to Hijack the thread, but how did you get it so you could switch between English and Welsh? Is that a built in feature of Joomla? We are looking to do the same so wondered if there is anything we need to think about before starting. When I breifly tried this before I think the language selection took us back to the homepage. Any advice welcome.

We are using Wordpress for Joomla from corephp.com - but I cannot find which .css style sheet to use in the template to change things.

It's not updated much but it works for us.

I've now managed to get the Joomfish module working and am in the process of getting my head around it so I can build up a structure for the website but I've got 1 snag I cant find a solution to.
On the home page I cant get rid of "Welcome to the Frontpage" message which keeps appearing. Following the instructions here I have managed to remove it from the english page, but when I click to change the language the message comes back. There is obviously something I've missed here, but I'm reluctant to continue with more content before I understand exactly how the translation pages work.
Any of you guys come across this problem before?

Nevermind, finally found the setting under the joomfish translation area...I just missed it the first time
