Modules Styling

Pretty Modules for Joomla! is an innovative concept to incorporate multiple content within a single module in a style that is in control of the user and not of the template. Developed with the need for complete control of design customization, Pretty Content displays much more than just modules or articles. It does not have any content of its own; rather it takes content input from the user, styles it, and then displays the same content as output.

  • Get this

With 4 content types and 5 display options, Pretty Modules' versatility is evident in its features.


Display a lot more !

  • Modules : Beautify existing modules by including them inside Pretty Modules
  • RSS / Atom Feeds : Display feeds in a manner that you want; independent of the source or template style
  • Custom Content : Whether you want to add code or custom text; add them as many as you want in single module
  • Articles : Show off the core content in a stylish way !


Ever wanted to add few bits of texts without bothering to make several articles or modules ? This allows you to add multiple texts right from one place. Each set can have a title and a description


Make your existing modules pretty by including them inside ! Just add the module position you want to load and get done ! Unless the existing module has its own CSS or hardcoded style, you'll be able to change its complete style - fonts, colors and all other parameters by including it inside


Dream of 'Latest' or 'Popular' news module with customized styles for title and text !

  • Display as Latest, Most Popular, Oldest, Least Popular order. Optionally, display by selecting a single article, from a single category, from a list of categories or list of user specified articles
  • Limit the number of articles to be displayed
  • Choose the article state and access level
  • Display either intro text or full text of the article


Show stylish feeds inside Pretty Modules with ample options

  • Add as many number of feed URLs as you fancy
  • Limit the number of feed items
  • Option to display or hide the date
  • Option to link the title to feed item source with further possibility to open the link in new window


Now style your modules irrespective and independent of the template !

  • Module Style : You can choose the display style of the overall module
  • Title Style : Title of each content item can be styled separately from the overall module
  • Description Style : The description or the text part can also be styled independently of the module

Either directly add CSS for each style or play with over 70 visual styling options for each !


Getting monotonous with simple one-below-the-other display ? Now get choices !

  • Vertical, Horizontal, Tabs, Sliders and Slideshow - all-in-one !

NEW IN VERSION 4.3.2 :- Animations !

This is one of the best modules I've seen ... solves one of the most common limitations of Joomla (the customization of modules).

It is difficult to use or understand, but when is quickly understood the potential of this module.

Congratulations to the designers, is one of the best modules I've purchased and I'm glad I purchased the lifetime subscription.


Does what it says!

I was having a nightmare of a time pulling my hair out while trying to figure out a way to customise the modules on my template.

I don't know CSS unfortunately and even if I did it appears changing one module spot would change all. Thankfully I found this module which does what I want straight from the box - and it works!

Obviously you still have to know some CSS to get the exact effects you want, but this has a few basic features that come with it.

The best thing is that unlike many extensions for Joomla these days, this one is sensibly priced which makes it affordable.

Thanks :)

I just bought the module and must say it is something that should have been available Loooooong time ago. Some documentation would be nice.

I am no CSS fundi, so some basic instructions will be great !

Excellent work guys !

Owner's reply: Hello. Documentation is now available and can be downloaded from

Excellent Concept

Giving the rating based on the idea and his non commercial extension. With so many templates using override systems this makes it simple for technically challenged to further personalize sites.

Shocked its taken so long for somebody to identify the need. Wish you Smooth Sailing on your development plans!
