SectionEx

It will display all articles within a section, grouped by categories. It combines and extends Joomla!'s built-in "Category List Layout" where there are various available configurations you can control to achieve the layout you desire.

Section is the best tool to create Frequently Asked Questions page or simple directories for your Joomla 1.5 website.

SectionEx was written on Joomla! 1.5 using its MVC "model-view-controller" architecture by Robert Kuster.

Category Block

The extension for Joomla to show the group of articles in a block mode, this component extracts first image and first few words or first characters (you set the number of words/characters) from the article, to make an eye-catching description with "Read More..." link.

There are a lot of settings like number of columns, styles, pagination, vertical and horizontal orientation etc. And even custom layout. So it's very good replacement for the built-in Joomla category/section blog layout.

Therefore, if you have only basic knowledge of programing or don't know it at all you can still setup the extension.
