Mambo site - additon of news category to front page

I require a quick requirement to do get some coding done quickly and correctly on a community site.

The site is based on customised version of Mambo 4.0.12. The server is Linux/MySQL

The home page is currently displayed in 3 columns

• Column 1 – contains menu items and links

• Column 2 – main content area and contains news items

• Column 3 – general column and the area which needs the coding

Mambo lets users add content as “News” items. These items can be assigned to different “news categories” and individual content entries are displayed according to their relevant news category.

The site has the standard “General News” etc as categories. We also have a category called “Social News”.

My requirement is that when a new “social news” category item is added in the backend it should be displayed in Column 3 on the home page.

Only the last two entries will be displayed. However the entries on the home page will have only the Title / Image (if any) and maybe a little text from the entry. These 2 items will link to each article so clicking on them in the first page will take a user to the particular Social news article.

What this means is that in the backend there will be a special “Enter Social news” menu option where a user can add entries and select a tick box to “display in col. 3 on homepage” option.

Also please see the attached reference screenshot to get a quick and easier understanding of my requirements.


• Only bid if you are experienced with Mambo and know how it works and can demonstrate your experience with URLS etc.

• I want work to be started and finished ASAP

• Do not bid if your cost is over or close to $100

• Bidder ideally based in India but am flexible


If final bidder is India based I can pay directly into your bank. This saves me exchange fees and better rates.
