Module for 1.5

08/03/08 I started a new page to make room for new comments 😉

I fixed (with help from Maurice in the comments) the SQL for the display of section/category names, this should work now. I added more ordering options, and an option to disable pluging for the module content. Alas it is not possible to disable plugins selectively, it's all or nothing. 09/03/08 Edited to add: Plugins are disabled by default, if you want to run plugins on the module content you  have to enable them in the  module parameters.

This has been tested on J! 1.5.1 J!1.5.2 running under WAMPP.

20/03/08 Added support for the accessible Beez template.  At the moment you need to manually set the template in the module parameters. Edited to add: Adam Wallner found a bug in the modules HTML that has been there for some time, I recommend an upgrade to the fixed version, or simply overwrite helperhtml.php with the fixed file from the archive.

    1. Have found the reason: the module doesn`t put the wright links (http://localhost/guia/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&id=0) it put it in all the articles, can you fix it?

    2. Danke euch für diese mod. Genau was ich brauchte!

    5. this should be a Joomla! by default module. great module! thank you very much.

    6. thanks thanks thanks for your usefull module… you are angel …. 🙂 love it <3

    7. Hi,
      Place here module when i use in my website, the article can be edited from the front end only in Home page(if the module is located in Home page only and in other pages the edit article button wont work in the front end). Is this is my website error or the modules ?

    8. Great module. Vielen Dank fuer Ihr Arbeit und Gruesse aus Hollywood!

    9. Just wanted to say this module is awesome and a much-needed extension for Joomla. Thank you very much.

    10. Hi,

      Thanks for the module , it is really usefull and easy to use,

    11. Thanks a lot for this module. it really good.

    12. Just wanted to say thank you for this extension. Does exactly what i needed to do. This is pretty much an essential extension for any Joomla designer.

      Thanks again and good luck for future developments.


    13. Great tool.Thanks a lot.

    14. Hi again Eike,

      I realized that the problem I mentioned earlier (as a comment somewhere in another post) is connected to the issue of SEF + .htaccess being used at the same time. Unfortunately I can’t afford to turn the .htaccess off. I’ve just updated the module to the 1.3.1 version, which I believe is the last, but still no love.

      It is something you acknowledged as a bug over two years ago on March 24, 2009, (comment #11105) so I’m wondering if you will be putting any focus on it in the future…

      BTW I really appreciate your module and have used it in several sites. Way to go!

      I’ll be comming back to check on updates. Cheers!

    15. Hej thanks for this great plugin. Would it be possible to imnplement again those fetures that was in the mod_contentitem, for example the ability to have the image removed from the introtext, and without creating external template-whil this is a great feature-set the order fo the title, text, image etc. Thanks a lot!

    16. Yes of course. Go to the module manager, check the checkbox in front of the place here module and click “copy” in the upper right admin toolbar. This will create an unpublished instance of the module that can be configured independently.

    17. Hi,
      is it possible to use more instances of it on one page?
      Thanks a lot!

    18. Hi,

      for me your module is one of the most used module in all my websites. So thank you soo much for your great job.
      I would like to know if is already fixed the bug for wich link doesn’t appear when using SEO settings.
      Thank you vert much again

    19. When will mod_placehere be compatible with Joomla 1.6? It is really a great module.

    20. Thank you very much, that was very usefull!

    21. i am regularly bumping all across the net just about all of the night hence I possess a tendency to read a good deal, which is not generally a good factor as a great number of the sites I visit are constructed of unproductive waste copied from different sites a thousand times, but I’ll hand it to ya this blog is frankly enjoyable and even holds some authentic substance, therefore many thanks for splitting the trend of simply just replicating other individual’s websites 🙂

    22. Thank you for making this module. It really help me a lot.

      Question: I created a lot of mod_place modules. Every day I add new articles on my site and put the article ID’s manual in the right mod_place modules. Unfortunatly this takes a lot of time. Is it possible to choose (checkboxes) the right modules when creating an article – for example below the wysiwyg editor or on a parameters tab?

    23. Good luck in the further development of your page! Thanks for this wonderful module.
      Many greetings

    24. Hi Eike,
      super Arbeit, ein großes Dankeschön.

    25. Hi, thanks a million for this module. One Question. is it possible to use more instances of it on one page. Wat I want is: 4 Divs, each shows items of a different category?

      kind regards,

      – So I tick “Do not run Plugins”: That’s ok with Readmore links, but component JComments can not run.
