Initially, I tried a few of the articles modules that can be found on the 'net, but none of them were exactly what i was looking for. Most were overkill for what I needed and a few were too plain.
So, I wrote a fairly simple articles module that has some similarities to a blogging system. As you add new articles, the older ones get pushed down the list. After the list reaches a specified size, the module handles paging of content.
It's main purpose was to display news-like entries, but I guess someone could use it as a blog if they wanted too. However, I did not need any user-comment functionality, so that is not there. It's a post-only thye of system.
Anyway, if it sounds like you could use it, give it a try. It's free!
If you do find it useful, please drop us an email and let us know how and where you used it. Thanks!
