Modules zijn lichte en flexibele extensies die worden gebruikt voor de paginaweergave. Deze modules zijn vaak de “blokken” die worden gerangschikt rond een component op een normale pagina. Een bekend voorbeeld is de loginmodule. Modules worden toegewezen per menu-item, zodat u kunt kiezen of ze getoond of verborgen moeten worden. Bijvoorbeeld de log-inmodule, afhankelijk van de pagina (menu-item) waarop de gebruiker momenteel is. Sommige modules zijn gekoppeld aan onderdelen: zoals bijvoorbeeld de “laatste nieuws”-module, die verwijst naar de inhoudcomponent (com_content) en links geeft naar de nieuwste inhoudonderdelen. Echter, modules hoeven niet te worden gekoppeld aan componenten; ze hoeven zelfs helemaal niet te worden gekoppeld en kunnen ook bestaan uit statische HTML of tekst.

Modules are managed in the Joomla! Administrator view by the Module Manager. More information about module management can be found on the appropriate version help screens.
