Dear forumusers,

Is it possible to add the mod_related_items mod before the joomlacomment plugin. Is it not possible to place joomlacomment in a module to align the modules.
For example

you can use the native joomla function to load a module position in an article
{loadPosition positionName}

this will load the modules in the given position.

I have read more over this method on this article:
www.joomlaspan.com/general/include-any-m...ent-in-joomla-15.php

This means that i have to place the {loadposition relitems} code on every article. I have already test it on one article and it works but it is a hell of a job with 375 aticles.

Is it possible to place the {loadposition relitems} code on the !joomlacomment template? Than have i only place the code once. I have already test this on /components/com_comment/joscomment/templates/modern/index.html
</head>
<body>
<div id="comment">
{loadposition relitems}
<!-- <<< html code above is just to allow preview of template -->
JOOMLACOMMENT TEMPLATE : default-emotop
/*-----------------------------------------------------------*/
/*--  only {xxx}{/xxx} blocks are taken in account  ---------*/
/*-----------------------------------------------------------*/
{readon}
but this do not work.

Can someone tell me how i can fix this problem?
Happy New Year!

Editing index.html will not work because Joomla doesn't know anything about the file, it's manually parsed via the JoomlaComment component (it actually doesn't even load the HTML as a Web Page, just as raw text).

EDIT: Wait, perhaps the article tag should work in the JC template because it's executed onPrepareContent... I'm not sure. But you will need to move the {loadposition relitems} tag to underneath the {body} tag in the JoomlaComment template - it already says in the comment template that "only data within the {body}{/body} tags are parsed by Joomla" (or something like that) and everything above it is for Template Preview only.

I have no idea how to re-code JoomlaComment into a module format (I've never written a component before) and Daniel already has a great deal of work... but I am interested in this. Thankfully, there are already some Component > Module wrapper solutions for you to try to see if it is at least possible (and if we're lucky it might work as a module straight away) but if you don't mind testing then try out one of the many extensions on the Embed & Include section of Joomla Extensions Directory - they have extensions there that can help, such as Plugin In Module which could allow the JoomlaComment plugin to execute in a module position instead of within the main content. Or perhaps the Component as Content extension might work better? Those two stood out to my eye, I might just test out the Component as Content one in a few days if I get around to it.

If you can help us with this, please do so - try a few of those extensions on a test site that might sound like a solution and tell us which one works the best for your Joomla site and if there are any bugs from using the one you decide on. If you do this I will try to bugfix it, and might even code up a new "Module Wrapper" option based on the mostly-working, generic wrapper extension you find to include in newer JoomlaComment releases :)

what I meant was this: www.joomlaspan.com/general/include-any-m...ent-in-joomla-15.php


Or you can install any other plugin that loads modules after the article ;)
