Custom HTML module, Modules Anywhere and Metamod Pro

Custom HTML module, Modules Anywhere and Metamod Pro

I would lilke if is there any experience combining Metamod Pro with NoNumber Modules Anywhere. The idea is to create multiple custom HTML modules each one inside a Metamod module. Then these Metamod modules should be included in a custom HTML module included as Modules Anywhere modules. The goal is to display or hide icons and links.

Do you believe this is possible?

Thank you for your great extension!

Re: Custom HTML module, Modules Anywhere and Metamod Pro

Hi MrWilly,

I'm not sure I'm quite understanding all the modules-inside-modules-inside-modules that you're suggesting, but it seems like quite a complex system for hiding icons and links. I wonder if there's a simpler way of doing it.

What sort of conditions are you wanting to use to determine whether or not the icons/links will be displayed? Is that the reason for wanting to use MetaMod? (e.g. quite complex conditions that you can't do with ModulesAnywhere alone?)

If you can set up the conditions using the NoNumber tools then you probably don't need MetaMod for it. Another possibility would be to use a find-and-replace extension e.g. NoNumber's REReplacer, or my Chameleon. Chameleon allows PHP rules as well as lots of GUI-based ones. A find-and-replace solution may be useful for removing HTML elements under certain situations, or adding CSS code which can remove items from display. Chameleon is great for that.

Having said that, it may be possible to get MetaMod to do it but it just seems overly complex.

Hope that helps,
