Text To Module

October 12th, 2011

Text To Module contains both a plugin and a module.

The plugin removes specific parts of an article (delimitated by {text2mod}…{/text2mod}) and puts them in a module of type “mod_text2mod”. This happens only if an instance of that module is available and published in the current page.

The module shows whatever text is removed from the article by the plugin.

*** Why I did it ***

Because a friend asked me to 🙂
Without Text To Module, if you want to show a different side text for each article, you should create a lot of Custom HTML modules and manually assign them.
This makes it easier, especially for a site owner which is not a Joomla expert, to get the same result.
