Tutorial
Creating a simple module

This is a multiple article series on how to create a module for Joomla! Version Joomla 3.x. You can navigate the articles in this series by using the navigation drop down menu.

Begin with the Introduction, and navigate the articles in this series by using the navigation button at the bottom or the box to the right (Articles in this series).


Joomla! 3.x is constructed using three different applications:

  • installation (used for installing Joomla)
  • administrator (used for managing content)
  • public (used for displaying content)

The installation application is used once. The administrator and public are used through the concept of components with modules. Each module has a single entry point located in the modules directory. This is called mod_modulename/modulename.php (the mod_ prefix is a historical trace)

Requirements

You need the latest version of Joomla! 3.x (with PHP, MySQL, Apache and Microsoft II) for this tutorial (as of writing currently 3.1.1)
