Is it possible to create a Global Configuration option for all the modules? So for example, Every Module has a Title field, If i wanted to add a "Module Tag Line" field to every module?

In reality what i really want is for every module in position "side-bar" to have a Tag Line Field.

Any Help Greatly Appreciated.

  • Please excuse me for asking what might be a stupid question as I'm very tired but could you define exactly what you mean by tag line?

You can do this with modules.php and modChrome:

  1. Go to your Module and set a title like this: First Title||Underline Title
  2. Then open this file joomlaroot/templates/youtemplate/html/modules.php
  3. Between the modChrome_xxxx function, put this code:

$moduleTitle = explode("||", $module->title); echo "<h3>".$moduleTitle[0]."</h3>"; if(!empty($moduleTitle[1])){echo "<h5>".$moduleTitle[1]."</h5>";}


check this tiny plugin for additional Module Parameters for Joomla: https://github.com/Nuebel/nnbootstrapparams ! It's for Bootstrap 3 settings, but with little changes, you can use this for your additional modul parameters.

  • Ah thank you, I will try the plugin.. Try and keep it clean as possible.. Will let you know...
