Site Modules: Edit

other.screensPlease note that at the present time a number of Help icons in Joomla! direct you to this Help Screen. In fact there are now separate Help Screens for these functions as follows: Admin Module: Edit



There is no generic Module - Editor screen, however, there are some key elements that recur throughout all the Edit [module-name] screens that this screen addresses.

The Modules are edited within the Component Type: com_modules. However, each of the Modules created are associated with a specific Module Type. This is designated as mod_module-name. Both of these element Types will be listed in these Help Screens.

The edit function within all of these Modules has certain common elements, these are:

  • Access
  • User Level
  • Toolbar
  • Details
  • Menu Items

Each of these elements are repeated in all of the the Help Screens purely for completeness.

The key difference between each Module is the Parameter settings, as it is these that relate to the specific functions of an individual Module.

The following table shows all the Site Modules that are installed, by default, by Joomla! Select the relevant Module to see the specific Parameters of it.
