M2C-Module to Component Component

This Component allows you to show a module in the main content area.

It is very useful if you have to make a module to look as a component in Joomla!...

In this site ( for instance I needed to show a group of RSS Feeds in the main content area, and I didn't want to install or create another component to do the job, so I plublished a module to do the job as a component ...

There are a few Menu parameters: Menu Image, position to load, Title and Description.

Once you install the component, you have to publish your module to the m2c module position, or to the position you have chosen in your menu parameters.

You can create as many menu items as you wish with only one component installation!

Enjoy :^)

This is the type of extension that should be already in Joomla, it's one of a kind and a must for building sites. The support from the author is excellent, the extension required updating for j3.1 and he did it the same day as I asked about it. I wish everything in life worked this way.

Firstly I did an experience placing a module as a component. Congratulations for developers!

This easy to use, functional extension was exactly what I was looking for. I cannot believe it came for free. Works well in joomla 1.7. Thanks so much developer, will certainly make a donation, and encourage others to do so.

I am running Joomla 1.6
I had a question about the file's version, and submitted a request, which was answered almost instantly (on the weekend!).
Installation was a breeze! The component works like a charm.
I used it to compile "read-mores" and other news display items

This component is a boon for new users. If one could not find an appropriate component, can use available module instead. No problem in installation and setting modules on the main page. Only you need to publish the module on the created menu item. Thats it.

I use this module more than any other it is simple effective and just works.

It can be used to place an article anywhere a module can go.

This is great on the gantry framework.

I especially like to display a picture or link which can then be changed with different menu choices.

Excellent module

I like this component very much but unfortunately, it did not work with minifrontpage. Only part of the module will be display, no image. Just like this website

Hope that I can make it work.

Perfect!!! I was wanting to place image viewer's on my main page, and not being a module coder, was finding it very difficult to accomplish. With this neat add on - problem solved!!!

I have looked, searched, installed, uninstalled, asked for help and tried a lot of 'creative' ways to add code that the all too helpful wysiwyg editor seems to always fix for me. Nothing worked!

This little module just did the job!

If you need to add your own code to a module position, this is the module for you!

I am running Joomla 1.5 with legacy turned on, installed in a snap, added new module - inserted my script -presto - it worked.

Thank you for a great module!

I uncomment the Joomla1.5 lines in the code (and comment the joomla1.0.x ones) and get a database error when tried to install on Joomla 1.5. I hope it will be ready soon :-).

M2C is now fully compatible with Joomla 1.5. There is no need for the legacy mode.

found this to be very simple and easy to use... but am also having trouble figuring out how to create multiple menu items that go to different modules.
Owner's reply

In order to use it more than once, you only have to create another menu item.

If you have any question, you can send me an email.

This has been a real timesaver, and allows for extended content. The only problem I have is that titles for the modules should be optional.

Other than that...BRAVO

I must say, i absolutely LOVE this component! Couldnt be any easier to setup and use and its very functional. You can see some of the things i have been able to do with this com on my website however you have to be registered in order to view this since i have heavily moded a friends list module to work with this. With a little work and imagination you can do what you will with this component. Ill try to get a screenshot of what i have done with this com soon in order to save you guys from the frustration of registering.

Really handy, I'll be using it a lot. Works right out of the box. The only issue I have is that I cannot figure out how to use it more than once on the site.
