- www.joomla.org has many modules – but note that Web Communications will need to test the module and IT must evaluate the security of the module before it can be loaded onto your site.
Module positions are specific locations in a template that are allocated for displaying modules. Modules can be positioned anywhere the template allows, making these very flexible elements for your pages. This makes Joomla extremely versatile when it comes to displaying what you want, where you want it.
All Joomla Web sites require at least one menu module
All other module types are optional. (Examples: News, Banner, Latest News, Polls)
Every menu is accompanied by a menu module. (Example: mod_mainmenu)
You can have multiple occurrences of similar module types.
Some modules are linked to components. For example, each menu module is related to one menu component. To define a menu in Joomla, create the menu and menu items using the Menus screens and then create the module for the menu using this screen. Other modules, such as Custom HTML and Breadcrumbs, do not depend on any other content.
