You can insert a module inside an article using the "{loadposition xx}" command, as follows:

  1. Use the menu manager to create a new unique menu name. This will be used in the module manager to assign the mainmenu module you instantiate. Its name will appear in the basic parameters menu name list. --Dpminusa 10:34, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
  2. Create a module and set its position to any value that doesn't conflict 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".
  3. 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.
  4. 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 with the article. The article triggers the display of the menu, but it needs to be displayed in an template position, i.e. left, right, top, user2, etc. --Dpminusa 10:46, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
