A Quick Overview of the Bundled Modules

Mambo provides for two types of Modules: Site Modules and Administrator Modules. The difference between the two has to do with where the modules are displayed. Site Modules are displayed on the front end of the site, visible to your visitors. Administrator Modules are visible only when logged into the Administrator system and are primarily intended to make the Admin interface friendlier and more useful. We discuss here only the Site Modules. If you wish to learn more about the Administrator Modules, please visit our Help Site.
