Hello World Module for Joomla!

This is a ready to go Joomla Module Boilerplate that you can use to build your own modules. I have added all the settings, elements and things I could find.

What does it do?

This is a module that displays a language sensitive Hello World statement. You can set the language in the module.

How to use this module

  • Install the module.
  • Configure the module how you want it, including making sure to publish it and enabling it on a page of your choosing.
  • Load the page that has the module configured to display on it.
  • You will now see a Hello World message displayed in your chosen language.


  • When the install mechanism is used, the title for the module comes from en-GB.mod_qwrealurl.sys.ini / MOD_QWREALURL_NAME="Hello World"
  • The module name is helloworld
    • Can be called by $module->name
    • Is made from the filename mod_helloworld.php, the mod_ prefix and .php file extension are removed.


mod_helloworld is fully compatible with Joomla versions 3.x (possibly only 3.8+) and 4.x. A few alterations and the plugin will work on earlier versions of Joomla.


mod_helloworld is a Joomla module developed by QuantumWarp and released under the GNU General Public License.
