- So, the next thing I'd like to show you…is the custom HTML module…which comes with Joomla…and the custom HTML module…you can think of as just a little mini article.…It's just a container where you can put any kind of text,…HTML, any kind of images,…anything like that that you'd like…and have it show up in a module position.…They're really straightforward to configure…and they're incredibly flexible and useful.…So, they're one of the most used modules…you'll find on Joomla websites.…
So, here's the way you go about adding one of those.…And I'm gonna add one here for our social media…so we'll have links off to our Facebook and Twitter pages.…So, we're gonna go to Extensions, Module Manager,…and we're going to add a new module to the website…by clicking the New button…and we'll choose Custom HTML…and so first of all we have to give this a title.…I'll just say something like…Find Us Online…and then here in the custom HTML…we'll go ahead and drop our images.…
I have those available for you…in your exercise files folder.…
