…by date, time, recurring time, GeoIP (country of viewer), browser type and language, user name, group, page within other component (e.g. Virtuemart), 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.
★ 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!

I spent 5 hours trying to stop these modules from showing up on search, alpha index, login and various other pages. In my search I found MetMod on the SigSiu website and this looked like my answer however I am not a programmer and this looked rather daunting.
I contacted Stephen via email, he was very responsive and helpful. We installed the mod and low and behold it fixed the problem without any extra coding.
All I can say is wow, thanks for the awesome help and for fixing this bug for us.
It makes a difficult task soo easy.
I needed to apply a fairly complex rule and googled for an answer, the Metamod forum had an outstanding answer and I simply copied and pasted it, making some minor changes. It worked just as expected.
I love this module.
I'm fairly adept with Joomla and have some basic PHP knowledge, but MetaMod makes applying rules extremely easy.
And allows for more complex usage depending upon your needs and skills.
The module is EXCELLENT and works like a charm once you get the hang of it :)
Good job Stephen!!
I just downloaded the extension, configure it, and voila! It worked just fine.
I strongly recommend this extension
Thanks to this extension my website is finally taking shape! And I believe I have only scratched the surface on what this extensions can do.
I highly recommend this extension, it’s great!
The support you get from the developer puts this module over the top. He provides terrific support even for the free version. But you won't need much help as the module is quite intuitive if you play with it enough and he's got detailed documentation and useful examples you can just cut/pasted on his site.
This module has my highest recommendation.
I was looking for a solution that would allow me to rotate 4 weekly menus without user intervention. The old way was to stop publishing last weeks menu and to start publishing this weeks menu. Not hard to do but why should I have to do that? That's what computers are for! This fantastic extension allows me to do just that. Set it and forget it!
But wait, there's more! I'm not a PHP guru and didn't know how to configure the "recipe" for my task. A simple forum entry was all it took. The developer supplied me with everything I needed as well as the logic behind it.
I'm also using this extension to randomly place modules on pages where another module is not assigned. A quick view on the recipe page was all it took to give me all the necessary information to accomplish this.
I can't wait to find more reasons to use this extension. I would vote for Stephen if he were running for president.
I just make a little mess with my Menu Assignment and I asked Stephen in his forum more infos. In less than 12 hours I get a detailed reply about my problem...
This module and the support is rock!! Thank again Stephen.
