What is a Module?
A MODULE is a lightweight and flexible extension which enables you to present almost any kind of website content in a Joomla! website.
Each Module can be separately controlled so that it is only visible WHEN and WHERE you want it to be seen.
For example, when someone:
- selects a Menu Link,
- signs into your website,
- visits your website from a particular device (example: smartphone).
This is called assigning the Module.
In this article we cover how to assign a Module to a Position and Menu Link.
And how to determine whether the Module will be visible depending upon the device and screen size used by the visitor.
Users with special permissions (Example: Administrators and Super Users) may edit Module content either after signing into the website:
- Control Panel, or
Creating new Modules
Daunted at the prospect of creating a new MODULE?
WYNCHCO website designs include lots of exemplar MODULES which have been pre-assigned by:
- Position, and
- Menu Link.
Look for an existing MODULE that appears similar to one that you want to create.
And then tweak its settings as required.
We cover how to create and duplicate Modules in this article.
