Re: Show different modules at different times in the day

Hi there

I'm hoping you can help me. I've installed meta mod 2-12 for my joomla 1.5 website.
I'm kind of new at this.
I need meta mod to rotate between certain modules at different times in the day, some banners will be showing during the week and some will come up on the weekend, at various times.

I'm designing a site for a radio station and have design banners for their different shows and I'd like these banners to change to match the show that is on the air at that time.

Hope this makes sense and that you may be able to help!

Your help would be much appreciated!

Thank you!!!

Re: Show different modules at different times in the day

et me tell you want I'm trying to do - I'm designing a site for a local radio station, and have designed banners for their various shows, so I'm needing metamod to show certain banners(modules) at certain times of the day during the week and certain  banners(modules) at certain times of the day during the weekend.

I've set the debug at advanced and this is what it says:

Page Identification
The PHP code below may be used to help MetaMod to identify the exact page that you are viewing. For help using this feature, please click here.
if (
$option == 'com_content'
and $view == 'frontpage'
and $Itemid == '1'
andJRequest::getVar('limit')== 11 /*!*/
) return XXX; /* replace XXX with the module ID or position to display */
Note: lines starting with "and" and ending with /*!*/ contain rules that may be optional. You may wish to leave them out.
MetaMod debug info:
Module ID: 44
$option: com_content
$view: frontpage
$id:
$Itemid: 1
$timezone:Africa/Johannesburg
$language: en-us
$language_code: en
$language_region: us
Including modules: 45



Your help is much appreciated! Thank You!

Re: Show different modules at different times in the day

Hi,

To get started, please read through the Quick Start guide: http://www.metamodpro.com/metamod/quick-start

Then take a look at the page of "recipes" for time-based rules:

If you have any questions after that, please ask them here.

Best regards,
Stephen
