How to place Shack Article Layouts

If you want to show Shack Article Layouts on your site, you will need to place the module on your site.

There are two ways to place your module.

First, you can use Joomla's "Position" setting to choose a module position:

sal position

Second, you can use Joomla's {loadposition} and {loadmodule} features and embed Shack Article Layouts inside an empty Joomla article. This is the recommended method.

Note: if you embed your Shack Article Layouts module inside a Joomla article and don't display it on any other pages, you should leave the "Position" parameter empty.

In the image below, I've used the "Module" button to choose the Shack Article Layouts module and place it in an article:
