How to know article id to customize the page

Post by floyd1616 » Thu May 19, 2022 10:41 am

Hello everybody,
in joomla I created a category with some articles.
The menu item, of course, is of the "blog category" type.

I would like to associate a custom module to one of the articles of the blog category, of which I know its ID. For example id = 3. I wrote the following code in the section head of index.php template:

Code: Select all

<?php 
$article_id = 3;
?> 

<?php if($this->countModules('ModuleName') && $view == 'article' && $article_id == 3) : ?>
    <jdoc:include type="modules" name="ModuleName" style="none" />
<?php endif; ?>
but the custom module appears to me in all the articles of the blog category and not with the one with id = 3.

Is there the possibility of associating the module only with that article?

Thank you

There is no need to modify the template or even to know the id of the article. The free extension Advanced Module Manager by Regular Labs does the job. The following selections are needed in the Assignments tab of the custom module:
  • Matching Method: Any
  • Articles: Include
  • Selection: { - article title - }
