Modules can be managed within the Module Manager by navigating to Extensions > Module Manager.
While every module has different parameters/basic options specific to its function, there are a few constant parameters/baisc options used to manage the desired display within your Joomla template:
- The title to be displayed above the module.
- Show Title
- You can also choose not to display the title on the frontend.
- Enables/Disables the module from being displayed.
- Select field that designates the location of the module (e.g; left, right, etc.)
- Select field to determine the ordering of the module (this can be quickly adjusted at the main module manager page)
- Access Level
- Allows you to select which user levels can see the module.
- Module Class Suffix
- Applied an additional CSS suffix to the module for additional styling.
Setting up a module for your site is an easy and quick thing to do.
- In your joomla admin, go in Extensions > Module Manger and click on New to create a new module.
- You will see Select a Moudle Type: and then click on Custom HTML.
- Now your module is ready to be used. In the Custom output you can upload an image, wright a blog or post latest news whatever you desire to have in that module. You'll want to give the module a title so you have a refrence when looking for it in your module manager, you also have to option to have your tilte be shown or hidden as seen in above
- You'll need to choose a module position for your module to be placed. The template comes with different positions for you to choose from, you can take a look at the avaliable Module Map to see which positions you have avaliable to you.
Once you module is ready to be published and you have a module position selected, your going to need to assign that module to the proper place on your site.
As seen in the image above you have four Module Assignment to choose from.
- On all pages: This will display the module on all pages throughout your site. Good to use if you have a menu published in a module that you want on all pages of your site.
- No pages: This will prevent you from being able to publish the module anywhere.
- Only on the pages selected: This will allow you to publish the module in a particular part of your site by clicking on the areas you'd like to have it published. Good to use if you want a module only showing up in particular parts of your site.
- On all pages except those selected: Same as the approch above just flipped.
