“News” is an extension developed by V Group Inc. This allows the sellers to display News and Events on their website. The extension can be applied on any page of the site. It also offers the flexibility to be applied on any area on the body of the page. The extension can be used to display Press releases and Events in horizontal or vertical layout. The News extension can be easily integrated by adding a short code on any page of the website. 

Once the News widget is installed on the site, it will display headline of each news along with the publish date, and a brief description of the news. Each news article will have a ‘View More’ link that would navigate the visitor to a page that has the detailed description of the news along with images and videos. The extension can also be configured to display the number of news articles in the News widget. The extension also has a feature to auto-rotate the news articles. 

The extension also works with Magento accounts that have multiple stores. 
Sellers who have their press articles listed in the e-magazines can provide the information by displaying it on the site. Companies and Organizations who have product launches, trade show events, interviews with celebrities, activities related towards charity and donations, contributions made towards protecting environment, official announcements, notification of educational courses and schedules etc., will find this extension extremely helpful. Companies that focus on brand promotion or are in the process of setting up a brand presence will also find this extension as a very helpful tool.

Sellers will have the ability to add and update the news from an interface from the Magento backend. The news items would appear chronologically on the page. The News extension also has the ability to import and export the news from the Magento admin.
