mini-news exampleA small 'site news' script is another one of those things you often find 'built in' with a large, multi-function script.

But sometimes you don't need or want a complex integrated script, all you want is a simple little piece of php code you can add to some pages of your site where the value of the parameters defines whether you show all categories of news, or a specific sub-set; include news 'header' or not; and display posting date or not.

An example snippet is as follows:

$parms = "0:1:1";// parameters

A single configuration file allows you to adjust colours/fonts and various parameters used by the script with no need to edit script files.
