Hi richiebee,

I like the avatar!

Unfortunately, MetaMod itself can't rotate a set of modules on the page. All it can do is to change which modules go into which module position. There are other modules out there that can wrap/fade/rotate other modules. Try the Joomla Extensions Directory.

Cheers,
Stephen

Hi metamodguy,

Thanks for the response...

however all I can seem to find is rotating banner image advert mods - that is why I hoped metamod could help me,
cheers,
Richiebee

Re: meta mod to rotate a set of modules (like weather for three locations)

Hmmm... I use one of the banner image rotators but haven't used a module rotator, but I am sure that some exist.

How about the YooCarousel: http://www.yootheme.com/tools/extensions/yoocarousel it can rotate modules, using the {loadposition} syntax.
Also RokTabs: http://demo.rockettheme.com/extensions/ … on=roktabs

Maybe even S5 Frontpage Slide: http://www.shape5.com/demo/commportal/i … ;Itemid=52
(not sure if that one can do auto fades, but it may).

Hope that helps. The YooCarousel and RokTabs ones look quite promising.

Cheers,
Stephen
