I need a module to display articles in a category

Hi,

I need a module to display articles in a category like this link:

giadinh.vnexpress.net/

At the end of the page, there would be pagination with numbers so that visitors can click on pages backwards to the articles posted in the past. Please see below pictures:

The articles must be shown with pictures.

That is in computer view, in mobile view, it must be friendly too.

Please tell me if you have any extension that type.

Thank you and regards,

Hai

Hi,

Is there any reason that this needs to be a module?

The usual way to do this would be to create a blog category menu item to a category of articles.

Hi,

I tried Category Blog but it is difficult to arrange the articles in a specified position, the articles are placed in the whole area mainbody. If I use a Module, I can place articel of one category in the left ans and on the right side, I can put other modules.

Furthermore, when I use Category Blog Menu, it is difficult to arrange some details like "Read More", "Comments", "Date", "Author"... as I want.

Also, when I use a module, I can place some articles at header and at the footer of the article by placing a module at header and footer of the article.

Furthermore, the blog category does not work well in mobile view.

I looked at your Zentool but I am not sure if it works like I expect?

Thank you and regards,

Hai

Hi Hai,

The best option here would be to create a template override for the blog category view and then change the html to arrange the elements as you want them.
The category blog view should be responsive and work on mobile devices.

That would be the only way to get the view you want with proper pagination.

Modules cannot generate pages and urls, they are simply widgets that are added into existing pages, so you will not get proper pagination functionality with a module.
