Before jumping in take a look at the "Introduction to Capitan Modules" article, which explains what Categories and Items are.

The Category page can be configured to output an Item listing, a menu of Sub-Categories or to be a regular content page.


Show a list of Module Items

Select "Category Listing" in "Category Output Type" then click  "Listing" to find the configuration options.

Every Item will be put into a box called a Preview Panel. Use "Listing > Listing Display Method" to choose how the Preview Panels will be arranged on the page. The grid options will output them in rows and columns, while the stacked option will output only rows.

Alongside "Listing Display Method" you can use "Arrange By" to choose how the items should be ordered (ie: alphabetically, by date, etc) and "Items Per Page" to choose how many items should be displayed per page (Capitan will automatically add pagination controls allowing visitors to browse all items: next/prev/page numbers..)

Preview Panel

You can use the drag and drop interface to choose what information will appear in the Preview Panel, and the order it should appear in.
