Control your modules! by date, time, recurring time, GeoIP (country of viewer), browser type and language, user name, group, page within other component (e.g. Virtuemart, K2), on-page text, article keywords, by article, section/category, domain, referrer…

…and much, much more!

MetaMod is a "Meta Module" - a module that includes other modules, according to a set of rules.

By installing the free GeoLite Country or City database from MaxMind, you can switch modules based on country names/cities/states etc.

Suggested uses:

  • VirtueMart: hide or show different modules at checkout, cart, product pages, categories etc.
  • Timed modules: recurring daily/weekly times and dates (great for radio/TV/broadcasting sites)
  • Languages: show different menus/modules based on the front-end language the user has selected (e.g. with JoomFish), or according to their browser language
  • Users: show a module for users registered for more (or less) than a certain time period, or target modules to certain users or groups
  • Switch between 2 modules for logged-in users and guests
  • Section/Category-specific modules: target modules according to the section/category of the displayed article
  • Domain & referrer: display different modules depending on which domain is being used for the page, or which site the user linked from
  • Browser detection: switch modules depending on the user's browser & browser version (e.g. show a different module for people viewing the site with Internet Explorer IE)
  • Control modules based on text found in the main component of the page
  • Control modules such as RSForm (show a different form based on where in the world someone is connecting from, etc)
  • Target modules onto specific pages in JReviews, CommunityBuilder, SOBI and almost any other component
  • Dynamically control the parameters of other modules on the page as well as whether the modules appear or not
  • and so much more!

Many more uses can be found in the documentation on the site, and in the forums. See you there!
