Introduction

Modules Management

Control your modules! (WORKS ON JOOMLA 3.3!)

  • Get this

…by date, time, recurring time, GeoIP (country of viewer), browser type and language, user name, group, page within other component (e.g. Virtuemart, K2), on-page text, article keywords, by article, section/category, domain, referrer…

…and much, much more!

MetaMod is a "Meta Module" - a module that includes other modules, according to a set of rules.

By installing the free GeoLite Country or City database from MaxMind, you can switch modules based on country names/cities/states etc.

Suggested uses:
★ VirtueMart: hide or show different modules at checkout, cart, product pages, categories etc.
★ Timed modules: recurring daily/weekly times and dates (great for radio/TV/broadcasting sites)
★ Languages: show different menus/modules based on the front-end language the user has selected (e.g. with JoomFish), or according to their browser language
★ Users: show a module for users registered for more (or less) than a certain time period, or target modules to certain users or groups
★ Switch between 2 modules for logged-in users and guests
★ Section/Category-specific modules: target modules according to the section/category of the displayed article
★ Domain & referrer: display different modules depending on which domain is being used for the page, or which site the user linked from
★ Browser detection: switch modules depending on the user's browser & browser version (e.g. show a different module for people viewing the site with Internet Explorer IE)
★ Control modules based on text found in the main component of the page
★ Control modules such as RSForm (show a different form based on where in the world someone is connecting from, etc)
★ Target modules onto specific pages in JReviews, CommunityBuilder, SOBI and almost any other component
★ Dynamically control the parameters of other modules on the page as well as whether the modules appear or not
★ and so much more!

Many more uses can be found in the documentation on the site, and in the forums. See you there!

You can't ive without it

One of the best piece of code I never met.



You figure something about module visualization and Metamod, in a way or in another, can easily do it for you.



Excellent support.



Thanks Stephen!


I have used this extension for more than one year but something just dropped it in my heart that I was owing the developer so much. I needed a system that would display module based on the logged-in CB user. When I first saw metamod, I did not believe it could do even much more than I conceived. I believe this extension could even be creatively used to achieve what the developer did not have in mind. I wanted a rating higher than EXCELLENT but I didn't see so I had to choose it. Thanks to the developer!


The extension is particularly interesting, with many special functions and applications, which makes its function to perfection. The support has been great, very attentive, patient and fast. To my excellent


I didn't know the real power of this amazing module! Until i was tried, and i am very satisfied.

You can control the content of your module very easy.

Thanks to developer for a nice and useful free version.

Five more stars from me.


exactly what I need

Amazing module! I needed something to help me turn off some modules for certain languages (I'm using JoomFish for translations), and didn't want to buy GOLD membership only to get a little plugin (with bunch of unneeded stuff) to help me do that. Meta Mod saved my day!


I need to display a module based on certain keywords in a content page. It works perfectly for this and offers other interesting possibilities. Thank you for your work!


A must have even if you are just for playing around with it. Super versatile and fairly user friendly! I actually bought it twice now. J1.5 and again for 3.0 and they credited me my original purchase on the upgrade package. Amazing! Keep up the good work.

Chameleon changes the way your site looks and acts under different conditions. It's like a multi-site extension, except your site can respond to much more than just domains… e.g. • use different template for mobile/tablet devices. • change branding/menus on your site for visitors coming from an affiliate or from a different country (GeoIP). You simply set up "conditions" to be detected, plus the "actions" to be performed when the conditions are met. Chameleon does the rest! Chameleon detects: ★ Browser (IE v6, FF, iPhone, iPad, tablet, mobile etc; using Categorizr for smart detection) ★ Browser language ★ Date, time, time of day ★ Page type (article, category, front page etc) ★ Virtuemart page types, products, cart contents, categories & coupons ★ Hikashop page types, categories and specific items ★ K2 page types, categories, authors and more ★ User id and group, logged-in and logged-out users ★ Article id, section, category and tags (J3.x) ★ Component ★ Site domain/sub-domain ★ Page URL and referrer ★ Random probability ★ GeoIP detection of the guest’s city/country ★ All "children" of a given menu or menu item ★ Anything else you can detect with a snippet of PHP. After it detects any of these, Chameleon can perform any of these dynamic "actions" on the current page: ★ set the template/style ★ "unpublish" menu items and/or plugins! ★ switch the "default" Joomla page (site home page) ★ switch which menu item will be highlighted as "Active" ★ internal or external redirection ★ dynamic find-and-replace of text/HTML on the page ★ set metadata, page title, and add JS/CSS ★ set the page language ★ dynamically switch VirtueMart 2.0 shopper group (and therefore pricing structure) ★ run PHP code More examples: ★ Use a different template and change some menu items depending on which "group" the user is in ★ Switch off comments plugin for a certain content category ★ Use a different template just for IE users ★ Use a different template if your site is embedded in FaceBook ★ Do A/B testing of two different templates, based on random probability. Use different Google Analytics on each template, then compare the performance. ★ Use different templates for site.co.uk and site.com ★ Set up different pricing structures using VirtueMart shopper groups, then switch shopper groups based on domain name, language, time of day or country of origin ★ Timed styles, templates, menu items, and more CHANGELOG See http://www.metamodpro.com/chameleon/mtp-release-notes Recent highlights include: v2.44 (30 September 2014) * new: Find and Replace action * new: substitutions for use in page redirections * new: detect subcategories v2.43 (4 Aug 2014) * Support for Falang, Joomla 3.3 (+ more) v2.38-2.41 (23 Apr 2014) * VM 2.6 support * article & category tag detection (J3.x) * IE9 and IE10 detection * choose type of redirect (301, 302, 303, 307) for precise SEO control
