The page where you include news, should be with extension .php

when showing news, archives you can use $number = x; to limit the to x the number of maximum showed news on one page. If you use $number, "next >>" link to remaining news will be displayed. 

if you want to show news, archives from certain category you can use $category = "ID"; where ID is the id of the category, you can choose and more that one category like this: $category = "ID1,ID2,ID3";

when you want to display news and headlines on one page for example, and want when a headline is clicked, the article to be displayed on the place of the news you must use $static = TRUE; before including headlines.

Remember that:

  • in all of the above examples you must replace path/to/... to with your path where you installed CuteNews
    and not to use the URL but the path
    WRONG: include("http://site.com/cutenews/show_news.php);
    CORRECT: include("cutenews/show_news.php);                          
  • in most cases when you include news and headlines in one page, you must use $static = TRUE; .
  • when you use $number, $category, $template or any other variable, it must be BEFORE include("show_news.php");
