  • Palimpsest
  • Live

In these order types, available into the TAB “List content -> List Selection”:

  • RANDOM (at every charging of the page the order changes casually).
  • JOOMLA ORDER (the order is the one defined into the Joomla's elements list).
  • RECENT (the parameter that affects the elements order is the publication date).
  • MOST VIEW (order based on the visualizations number or hits of the element).
  • MOST COMMENTED (if it's enabled the comments plugin).
  • MOST COMMENTED for the CHAT (if enabled the chat's comments plugin for the LIVE element, the elements will be ordered by the comments number).
  • MOST RATED (the most voted from the users will be at the top of the list).

For the LIST functionality it's important to select the “Destination menu item”, that is to say the menu item where to show the choosen element in "List content -> Type".
