This simple and fast module allows you to display the main news of the site (text HTML or/and the latest article from a specific categories) in a pop-up window when loading the page of the site. The news will be shown to the site user only once, until you change the text of the news or create a new article in the categories specified in the module parameters. Also, the user can click the "Remind me later" button, while the news will be displayed to the user again at interval set in the parameters of the module. The module uses the built-in Joomla bootstrap library.
