I'm writing an add-in for Joomla and I have a question about modules. I'll be the first to admit I'm not a wizard on Joomla. I have read a bit and watched some tutorial videos.
Say I have a module that displays a mini-calendar. Can I have the mini-calendar display data from one set, while on a different page, the same mini-calendar module displays data from another set?
In WordPress, when you drag a widget into an area, you can specify the settings for the widget, in that specific area. You can even drag the same widget into a specific area multiple times and specify different operating parameters for each widget instance. Is there something analogous in Joomla?
If modules aren't the way to go, could anyone please give me a pointer on the direction I should go?
