• FAQ, teasers, download pages
  • Manage listings in an easy way
  • Multiple types and layouts

SimpleLists is a Joomla component for displaying content-listings. A list is handled as a category containing items. Each item is similar to (but not the same as) a Joomla article - it has a title, text and category. But a SimpleLists item also has a picture and a destination link (URL). This allows for much more flexibility than Joomla articles, because each item is always styled in the same way.
