- So the first thing we're gonna talk about…are modules in Joomla!…Joomla! comes with three kinds of extensions.…Extensions being the overarching word…for all different types of functionality…you can plug into Joomla!…And those are characterized in three ways.…One is modules, one is components, and one is plug-ins.…So modules are the bits of additional functionality…outside of the content that occur…around the edges of the web page.…So if we take a look here at the homepage of the website,…the Login Form here is a module.…
The navigation bar across the top is also a module.…We added a navigation bar here in the content video,…and that is down here.…It's a module.…And in some cases the footer may be a module…or it may be built into the template.…We also have breadcrumbs here.…The breadcrumbs are a module.…So these are little extra bits of functionality.…You can have as many modules per page as you want.…Just because you can doesn't mean you should,…but it is possible to add as many modules per page…as you want.…
