Administration panel of Multiheadlines have a lot of options grouped in 8 sections as follow:
Number of news on home page - this is the number of feeds that will be showed on first page of module.
Number of columns on home page (must divide the above number exactlly) - The feeds from first page of the module can be placed in many columns. If you decide that you want to show the feeds in more than one column be carefuly and select here a number that divide the Number of news on home page exactly. This is absolutely required.
Feeds showed when clicking

Show update time - if you don't want to show the updated,published,...time you can change it from here.
Full view - means that each feed will have a title, a direct link to the original article and a short description, content or summary that camed through the RSS/RDF/ATOM channel or entry. Some sites don't give any summary so instead of description/summary you'll have "N/A".
