Basics of pluggable modules

Everything displayed on a page by Zenario has come from a plugin, and every plugin is driven by a module written in PHP.

This includes all visible web page features, such as a Banner (e.g. used for a logo or call-out message), or a WYSIWYG editor.

To add new functionality that visitors to your site will see, you will need to write a module that is "pluggable".

Essential methods

At the bare minimum, a pluggable module needs the showSlot() method written in its module_code.php file.

The showSlot() method results in some HTML that is displayed on a page.


This section shows you by example how to write a pluggable module. Start with the "Hello World" pluggable module here.
