Best Joomla Modules of 2014

What is Joomla Module?

Simply put, a Joomla module is a block of code that pulls information from your website’s database or from Joomla components. Modules can be placed in any predefined module position included with a Joomla template.

Modules are lightweight and flexible extensions used for page rendering. These modules are often “boxes” arranged around a component on a typical page. A well-known example is the login module. Modules are assigned per menu item, so you can decide to show or hide (for example) the login module depending on which page (menu item) the user is currently on. Some modules are linked to components: the “latest news” module, for example, links to the content component (com_content) and displays links to the newest content items. However, modules do not need to be linked to components; they don't even need to be linked to anything and can be just static HTML or text.

Modules are managed in the Joomla! Administrator view by the Module Manager.

I love the layout of the module, and it’s easy to use, but it keeps making two rows of articles even though it should only be one. Even if I put 3 articles, it will display one of the articles in a second row…

Best Support and Good Module!
What I just love is when I see a good support, they told me “give us 2 Days” and after one they had already fixed it and updated my module on my website. I give them 5 stars.

Jonte, via Joomla Extension Directory

Short and sweet
It works well and support is very helpful. It also has many options to configure the module. My client wanted scrolling and at first I didn’t think it had it so was very happy to find out it did. You can set the module height in px so it’s very versatile for display options. The developer has a matching Facebook Feed that I got to go along side of this. Both match each other really sweeting the whole deal. There are some style choices right in the module too.
