hi there,

actually, a module can not be invoked by itself, as a stand alone item. it has to be published on at least one page.

could you describe us what your are trying to achieve from your module?

I have created a contact form using the custom HTML module. I want to create a Menu Item which would say "Contact Us" and upon clicking that I want the form to appear. Is there any way this can be achieved? ???

one possible, albeit not very elegant solution would be to create a Contact US article page to link your menu to and then publish your custom module in the article body.

I've done this and it works, but is there a way to create an alias so that it only shows the module and not the article.
If so, what are the steps, I keep getting confused on the process. Thanks for your help!
