You will usually want to associate modules with articles in some way. The modules are allocated to module positions and the module positions appear somewhere on the web page as determined by the template. However, it is sometimes useful to have a module actually embedded in the article content itself.

To insert a module inside an article you use the "{loadposition xx}" command, as follows:

  1. Create a module and set its position to any value that doesn't conflict with an existing template position. You can type in the position value instead of selecting it from the drop-down list. For example, use the position "myposition".
  2. Assign the module to the Menu Items that contain the articles that you want the module to show in. You can also just assign the module to "All" Menu Items.
  3. Edit the articles where you want this module to show and insert the text "{loadposition myposition}" in the article, at the place where you want the module to show.

The module will show at that point in the article.
