How to Access

Navigate to the Module Manager and either press the "New" button on the toolbar or click on a Module Name.


This is where you create new Modules or edit existing Modules. When you create a new Module, you will select the Module Type. This will determine what type of content this Module can display. If you edit and existing Module, the Module Type will already be determined. Note that you cannot change the Module Type of an existing Module.

Note that if you install one or more Joomla! Extensions, these Extensions may add new Module Types. In this case, your screen will show additional Types.

Module Types

When a new Module is created, the Module:[New] screen displays all of the Module Types available for new new Module. A standard Joomla! installation includes 20 Module Types. These are described below.

Quick Tips

  • You can insert a Joomla! Module inside an Article by typing "{loadposition xxx}", where "xxx" is the position entered for the desired Module. Note that the position name must not conflict with a position used by your Joomla! template. It can be any name (e.g., "mymoduleposition1") as long as it matches the position name typed in for the Module. The Menu Assignment for the Module must include the Menu Item where the Article is displayed, and the Plugin called "Content - Load Module" must be enabled (which it is by default). This feature allows you, for example, to insert a Custom HTML Module anywhere in an Article. See Article Manager - New/Edit for information about adding and editing Articles.
