Install Joomla Modules

Joomla Modules extend the capabilities of Joomla giving the software new functionality. Joomla Modules are small content items that can be displayed anywhere that your template allows it to be displayed. Joomla Modules are very easy to install in the Admin Section. Joomla modules may include: Main Menu, Top menu, Template Chooser, Polls, Newsflash, Hit Counter, etc. Members of the Joomla Community are producing third party Joomla modules on a continuous basis. Let’s try in this tutorial to install one module.

First, choose your desired module and let’s start.

Log in your administration section.
On the top menu go to Modules –> Install/Uninstall. You will see now a list of modules already installed on your site. Under that list you will see “upload new module” section. (under that you will see a list of directories. be sure that all that directories are writeable)
Press “browse” and go to┬ápackage you want to install. Select it and upload the file.
The next screen will show you if the module was installed succesfull.
Go to Modules –> Site modules and publish the new installed module.

Thats all for now. In the future there will be tutorials about how to arrange modules on your mambo site.
