Custom Layout when displaying modules

Custom Layout when displaying modules

Hello,
I have just trying to display 3 modules with metamod pro.
I have inserted the ids and I want to display the first two in one line and the last under them.
In other words I want to display them in specific positions or with html code between them.
How can I do this?

thanks in advance!

Re: Custom Layout when displaying modules

Hi jpapan,

There isn't actually any mechanism in MetaMod (or Pro) for inserting HTML between modules, or adding any other kind of layout. The aim of MetaMod is to change *which* modules are appearing, and to make it look to Joomla like these were allocated using the normal Joomla mechanism.

I wonder if you might be able to combine MetaMod with nonumber.nl's "Modules Anywhere"? Perhaps you could make a plain HTML module that contains placeholders for the real modules you want to be included (with Modules Anywhere), with some extra HTML around them, then use MetaMod to control when this appears? Just a thought.

Sorry that MetaMod does not directly address your need.

Best regards,
Stephen
