The LOADPOSITON Command
How to display Modules inside Articles
The bordered box below illustrates a MODULE being displayed inside an ARTICLE using a Custom Position.
The Joomla! CMS enables you to create CUSTOM Positions in addition to the ones included with your website's Template.
The CUSTOM Positions may be created inside Articles and Category introductions.
And therefore presented in the Main Body of your website i.e. between the LEFT and RIGHT sidebars.
For more information about Template Positions and POSITION MAPS, visit the link below.
Two alternative methods
The LOADPOSITION Command is one of two alternative ways of presenting MODULES inside ARTICLES using Custom Positions.
The Loadposition Command syntax we use to insert the above MODULE inside this ARTICLE looks like this:
In this example, the word EXAMPLE is the name of the CUSTOM POSITION.
If you prefer to use the Loadmodule Command then simply interchange loadmodule for loadposition in the above syntax.
The LOADPOSITION Plugin
The Content - Load Position Plugin must be enabled for you￼ to be able to use either Command.
This plugin is enabled by default in a WYNCHCO website design - see image below.
How to use LOADPOSITION Command
"To insert a module inside an article, use the command, as follows:
- Edit the articles where you want this module to appear and insert the text in the article at the place where you want the module."
1) Display a Module inside an ARTICLE
2) Display a Syndication Feeds Module inside a Category Introduction
We wanted to display a SYNDICATION FEED button at the top of our JOOMLERS.UK NEWS blog.
Using LOADPOSITION to display Modules side by side
LOADPOSITION Command can be used (in conjunction with Bootstrap Size) to display Modules side by side inside an Article.
Note: Bootstrap Size enables Module width to be changed.
When used in this way in a WYNCHCO website design, the first Module in the row may be indented slightly (5 PX) from the left.
We show you how to correct this using a Quick Fix Style Set in our separate article.
