a few years ago, I implemented a Joomla 3 instance for a website of a biking club. It was nearly not used since then, because there was no necessity. But now we have the necessity.
Back then, I developed a small module just for displaying DropDown lists, under which a few PDF files were listed for download. The module had - hardcoded - some paths under which it should collect the PDF files.
Now, what we want is pretty simple. We want to define ourselves, on the Joomla side (not on the website frontend), where the module should look for the PDF files. So logically, it should look like this:
Year: 2018 Description: Lists of 2018 race Path: website\downloads\race_lists\2018\ FileTypes: * display: yes Year: 2023 Description: Lists of 2023 race (not yet published) Path: website\downloads\race_lists\2023\ FileTypes: PDF display: no
... and so on
Practically, this should resolve in form fields on the Joomla Module config site, where we can choose those parameters years, paths, file types etc.
Since I have not worked very much with Joomla, maybe someone can tell me if it is possible (and how), before I invest plenty of hours in research.
