Hi,
I am using MetaMod to check the browser and display a flash file for the appropriate browser. I'd like to use the AllVideos plugin instead of a module position, is this possible?

Re: Plugin

Hi Cindy,

Sadly, not, not directly. The only way I can think of to do this would be to put the AllVideos code in a module, and then use the MetaMod to control the display of the module. You could even to that with the {loadposition positionname} thing in your content - just put the MetaMod into a position with a unique name, and use that to load in the module with the AllVideos code in it. Then use {loadlosition} to load in the position that the MetaMod is in.

There was some discussion a few weeks back on the Joomla developer maling lists about making a special type of plugin that can control other plugins. But that's for a future version of Joomla, if it goes ahead at all.

Best regards,
Stephen
