Modules are small blocks of content that can be displayed in positions on a Joomla!® web page.
The menus on this site are displayed in modules.
The core of Joomla includes 24 separate modules ranging from login, search to random images.
Each module has a name that starts mod_ but when it displays it has a title.
In the descriptions in this section, the titles are the same as the names.
Select a heading below to read about that Module type and the Modules within that corresponding Module type, or use the 'Modules' drop down menu iten on the site mainmenu.
Content modules display article and other information from the Joomla!® content component.
Joomla!® Display modules show information from components other than content and user.
Display modules can include:
- News feeds
- Joomla!® media manager
Joomla!® Navigation modules help your website visitors move through your website and find what they need.
Menus provide your website with structure and help your visitors navigate your site.
Although all menus are based on the same menu module, the variety of ways menus are used in the sample data show how flexible this module is.
A menu can range from veryy simple to extremely complex.
Navigation Modules can be used for other types of presentation such as the 'site map' linked to from a menu.
Breadcrumbs provide users with information about where they are in a website.
You can have only one menu, or multiple menus. For example you can have one 'mainmenu' plus a 'User Menu', or you can incorporate the 'User Menu' items within a single 'mainmenu'.
A 'User Menu' typically contains links to various parts of your website that are unique to logged-in users.
Joomla!® User modules interact with the user system to:
- allow users to login
- show who is logged-in
- show the most recently registered users
