    module with a lot of converted joomla templates - over 100 templates to choose from
    #1 by ruben42 on Apr 23, 2010 4:16:29 AM

    hi there,

    we created a templating module for magnolia that uses converted joomla
    templates - you can find an example site at http://hwt4m.headwire.com/ ,
    just click a template thumbnail in the bottom to change the template of
    the page. The template applies for all subpages of a given page,
    supporting multiple sites on one server.

    You can download the module if you find it useful. The templates use JSP
    at the moment - we will be adding more paragraph types in the future.

    It would be great to get some feedback on the module from people that
    try it out :-)

    Thanks

    Components are the largest and most complex extensions of them all; they can be seen as mini-applications. Most components have two parts: a site part and an administrator part. Every time a Joomla development page loads, one component is called to render the main page body. For example, Content (com_content) is the component which handles the display of content; users can view at the front end of your site and, as an administrator, you can edit the content. Components are the major portion of your page because a component is driven by a menu item and every menu item runs a component.

    Examples: Content (com_content), Banners (com_banners), Contact (com_contact), News Feeds (com_newsfeeds) and Web Links (com_weblinks)

    Modules are more lightweight and flexible extensions used for page rendering. These modules are mostly known as the “boxes” that are arranged around a component, for example: the login module. The footer is a module. Modules are assigned per menu item. So, you can decide to show or hide the logon module depending on which menu item the user is viewing. Sometimes modules are linked to components such as the “latest news” module which links to the com_content and displays links to the newest content items. However, modules do not need to be linked to components, as a matter of fact they don't even need to be linked to anything and can be just static HTML or text.

    Examples: Banners (mod_banners), Menus (mod_menu), Who's Online (mod_whosonline)

    You can't convert a component to a module. A component, module and plugin are all 3 different things. Obviously, if your component was something like a simple upload form, then this could be turned into a module but I doubt very much it is.

    Nor can you place the component in a module position.

    Judging by what you're asking, I am assuming that this is your own custom component, in which case, you should have had a little think and done a little research before you made it and brainstormed your exact requirements.
