Placing Component Code in the Page

Placing a component within a page is easy as 1-2-3.  Select-Copy-Paste.  Of course, if you’ve never done it before, you may feel a bit apprehensive.

In most pre-bundled solutions, many components are pre-placed in your page.  This is with the exception of those components that are for those things which you have not yet created, such as: a blog, a form, a support contact form, a guest-book, a registration box, a web pool.

Find the Component you wish to Copy

In any module, you should find the component code either on a page that is referenced by a link saying “Get Component Code”,

or by a menu option that is labeled “Components”.

Referring to the specific help section for your product should tell you where you need to go to get the component code for components of that plug-in.
