Cannot enable module in article view

Cannot enable module in article view

Hi there, I'm trying to have a module displayed when a specific article is opened in a standard module position but I can't. I'm using if ($content_genius->check("article_id = 125")) return 234; (<- module id)

Settings:
in the module I want to be displayed: menu assignment: none, module position: desired position
in metamod: menu assignment: none, module position: desired position

Am I missing something?

Thank you.

Re: Cannot enable module in article view

Hi,

yes, the MetaMod needs to have some menu assignment: either "all" or a selection of menu items.

Cheers,
Stephen

Re: Cannot enable module in article view

Yes it works now, but there is a problem I don't know if it can be solved. I have activated the metamod in the menu item where the category of my article is connected. The desired module shows up only in the article, but the position is activated everywhere in the category, showing an empty box. Any ideas?

Thanks for helping

Re: Cannot enable module in article view

Hi - please check the FAQs for this one.

In general you can fix this by using MetaMod Pro, but there are some other tricks to do with module class suffixes etc that may also be able to help reduce the amount of free space that gets created. But "Pro" is the easiest fix in most cases.

Hope that helps,
Stephen
