SimpleLists offers a very flexible way to configure content-listings fast and efficient. It does so with flexibility in mind: As always, this requires you to first setup things correctly, but after this, management becomes a breeze. No need for a complex CCK. No need to make extra clicks.
Images can be selected easily by using a popup gallery box. Each content-item can point to a certain destination link - this can be an article, Menu-Item, image, files - all can be selected easily. SimpleLists even adds some advanced tricks for user-friendliness: It remembers which sliding tab was open when you closed the window, and automatically enters default values when you add new items.
