To disable the newsflash (or any other) module from being displayed on the front end of the website, you first need to log into the administrative back end.
- Once in the back end, on the top menu click Extensions => Module Manager.
- Locate the Newsflash module. You may need to navigate to another page as there are many modules and they are not all displayed on the first page.
- Click the "Next" or "Previous" links at the bottom of the page until the module is located.
- Once the module is located, click on the icon next for this module name in the "Published" column.
The icon should change to a red "dot" which indicates that the module is now unpublished and invisible on the site’s front end.
