Description:

Module Type: mod_latest

The Administrator Module: Latest Items creates the Latest Items Tab on the Control Panel work space. The Module displays a list of the latest published Content, and Static Content Items on the web site Front-end (some may have expired even though they are the most recent, they still appear in the list).

Toolbar:

 preview_save_apply_close_help

Preview: To check the appearance of the current Module in a browser-style window, click the Preview icon. A pop-up display page will appear. Close the pop-up by clicking anywhere upon it.

Save: Click Save to save any changes made during the current editing session, and return to the Module Manager screen.

Apply: Click Apply to save any changes made so far in the current session, but remain in the Module screen to continue editing. If the current action was creating a new Module it will now have been saved, and will appear on the Module Manager list. In addition, the current session now becomes an Edit action rather than the Add action it was previously. Once the editing session is complete click Save as above.

Close: Click Close at any point to end the current editing session and return to the Module Manager screen. Any changes made since the session commenced, or since the last time Apply was clicked, will be lost.
