Text To Module contains both a plugin and a module.

  • Get this

The plugin removes specific parts of an article (delimitated by ) and puts them in a module of type "mod_text2mod". This happens only if an instance of that module is available and published in the current page.

The module shows whatever text is removed from the article by the plugin.

*** Why I did it ***

Because a friend asked me to :-)
Without Text To Module, if you want to show a different side text for each article, you should create a lot of Custom HTML modules and manually assign them.
This makes it easier, especially for a site owner which is not a Joomla expert, to get the same result.

Thanks to Christian from, who had the original idea.

One of the many extensions that surprised me. Very handy at times and it works in tandem with many other extensions to produce effects and then place them in the module. This extension allows users to place a tag around the content and push it into a module but this is one to one. I wish if we could push content into various module positions and not just one.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review! Your suggestion is reasonable and we will work to produce a "multiple modules" version as soon as possible.


Sometimes I need some advanced layouts. This module helps me to create it. You can render any article element (title, alias, introtext, fulltext, etc ) inside the module.

If you write "JHTML::_('content.prepare', '{text2mod}'.$this->item->title.'{/text2mod}');" anywhere in your template, the module render the article title. And so on.

Extremely useful.

Awesome! Been wanting an extension like this for a while. So basically this module gives not only the back end users convenience of not having to create modules for each position, but it also gives power to the frontend user. So if you have things like "External Links" that you want to show on a side bar (or anywhere else) you can use this extension to have it display. It even renders html just fine as it should and can be used to display mini content on the side. Now all we need is for it to be joomla 1.7 available. Anyways, thanks for making this cool extension.

Cheers Josh Lewis

Owner's reply: @Joshlewis:
thank you for your kind words. Due credit must be given to a friend of mine who is also occasionally a customer, who had the original idea and asked us to create this solution. P.S. i asked him permission to include his name in extension description.
About Joomla 1.7 compatibility, i am going to get some additional help in a few days and hopefully it will be released with only a reasonable amount of delay :-)

*** Description *** This module lets you add CSS rules to your page, either by including an additional CSS file or by writing those rules in a parameter of the module. It also allows you to quickly insert a common style rule related to the body background. Combined with the option to assign modules to only some menu items, it means that you can easily and quickly set different CSS rules for each page. *** Suggestion *** If you use "Advanced Module Manager" extension, which lets you assign modules based on a significant variety of criteria, you may get excellent results with a little effort. *** PRO version *** There is also a PRO version available, with advanced features. *** IMPORTANT *** AddCSS v3.5+ is compatible with Joomla 2.5 and 3.x AddCSS v3.0 - 3.4 is compatible with Joomla 2.5 only.

This component allows user to register by inserting only an e-mail address: it will be used both as "Full name" and "Username"; password will be created randomly and sent to the user. To use this component, just create a menu item which links to Simple Registration -> Registration Form. Or, you can also use the included module to have the register form everywhere you like. 3.0.1 password field not present in module even with relevant option set password is sent to the user even when no activation is needed (override Joomla behaviour) 3.0 + compatible with Joomla 3 + now the package includes also a module + option to create username from the "user" part of the e-mail (before the @) + autologin option 2.3 + You can now configure the component to ask the user for a password instead of generating a random one 2.2 * fixed "class JParameter not found" error in Joomla 2.5
