Joomla can normally only assign modules to any page that has a “Menu Item” linked to it. MetaMod Pro completely removes this restriction – place modules on any page, at any time, to whoever, from wherever you want!

  • set module start and end dates, and recurring time periods
    e.g. great for radio/TV/sports schedules
  • show/hide modules for particular articles, sections or categories
  • show/hide modules for particular users, guests, logged-in users, or any user group
  • show/hide modules based on browser type
  • show/hide modules based on site or browser language
  • control modules on page types within common components
    e.g.VirtueMart, SOBI2, MyBlog, CommunityBuilder, JReviews, K2 and many others!
  • GeoIP-based selection
    select based on the user’s country, state or city

MetaMod is a free module-within-a-module solution. It can show and hide modules based on all the same rules as MetaMod Pro, but has some layout limitations because of the way modules are placed inside the MetaMod “wrapper” module. Nevertheless, it’s powerful and FREE!
