Turn Module Into Iframe

I need to display a module from one Joomla site onto several other Joomla sites.

I hoped to do this by getting the module onto a page without any other template or menu. I know that I can acheieve this by including ?tmpl=component in the URL, but as you navigate to the next folder in the frame, the ?tmpl=component string goes away and the full page loads.

Is there a way to apply ?tmpl=component to the end of the URL for a menu item? or is there another way to make this work?

Menu item type System links >>> url ... just put the relative path.

I'm not sure if I understand this.

I want to isolate the module by itself on site A to turn it into an iframe to put on site B. It is dozens of document folders and thousands of individual documents. I can get the root folder to show up correctly here: https://lambertvillenj.org/mcarchives?tmpl=component

but when you open one of the sub folders, it loads the entire page. I need it to load just the module even when the folders are opened.

The answer is Menu item type System links >>> url ... just put the relative path.

The link you gave has hyperlink on images. The easiest way is ti create a Template that just has a Component area and no module Positions.

An iframe is always a link that loads a page and not an individual module. In Joomla default you cannot load a single module from Site "A" into Site "B"

So you might use this https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... component/ perhaps and load that link in the iframe (use Modules Anywhere from Regularlabs to add the module)

That worked perfectly. Assigning the module to a COMPLETELY blank template.
