This is the documentation for the Joomla 3 version of Modules Anywhere.
There is currently no Joomla 4 version of Modules Anywhere.

Modules Anywhere is a Joomla! system plugin (that also comes with an editor button plugin).

It allows you to include single modules or complete module positions anywhere in your site, including within articles, inside other modules, or even 3rd party components and template overrides. You can place modules literally anywhere you want, wherever you have the ability to enter text.

You only need to place a simple tag like this to place a module:

{module title="Name of My Module"}

Modules Anywhere is a lot more flexible and advanced than the Joomla core "Load Modules" plugin. Here are some of the great advantages:

  • It works anywhere, not only in articles. It works in other modules, and even components and template overrides.
  • You have the ability to ignore the module access level, state and assignments when placing the module.
  • You can control the html display style within each module tag, not only one global setting.
  • You can override settings/parameters in the module. PRO
  • You have advanced security setting, so you can disable this feature for lower user types or certain components. PRO
  • It comes with a very easy to use editor button.
  • You can set Modules Anywhere to also handle the Joomla core module tags. In that case, you can safely disable the "Load Modules" plugin altogether

See the Comparison Table for a breakdown of all the advantages and differences.
