A small video tutorial of setting up a custom Module in joomla 1.6 setup custom modules. Joomla allows you to add your own modules with your own text/HTML content very easily. We use such custom modules on the templates demo site to outline the different module positions. If you want to add your own log into your admin backend and click on "extensions->module manager". Hit the "new" icon in the upper right corner and select as module type "custom HTML".
The setup screen of your new module appears. Add a name, select the module position where you want to display your content (take a look at the "module map" above) and add your content into the editor text box at the bottom of the setup screen. You can add texts, images, links and any other HTML elements. Save your module and publish it.
