Modules Management

This is a module that will randomly display other modules from a module position of your choosing.

  • Get this

Put all the modules you want to have randomly appear in a new position, for example "randompos".

Then create a new instance of the "Random Module" module, place it into an actual layout position that displays in your template, and under "Basic Options -> Position" enter the "randompos" position or whichever position your pool of random modules are located.

Super easy

This is a one-trick pony—nice and simple, works as advertised.

Ease of use

With one configuration option, it doesn't get any easier.

I used this to: Displaying a randomly selected module.


This was just what I wanted, installed, setup and running within minutes.

Ease of use

The module was very straightforward to setup. I did amend the code slightly to show the title of the module being loaded.

I used this to: I used this module to display maps from random categories on my directory website. If the map showed every category there were too many markers, the page took an age to load, so I decided to produce a different map module for each category then show one at random each page load.
