Page 1 of 4An introduction to Components, Modules & Mambots
The default installation of Mambo includes a variety of features which are available for your use at the click of a mouse. Without installing any additional software, you can manage banners, set up surveys and polls, syndicate your content, and do many other common tasks.
The tools that make these functions possible are called Components, Modules and Mambots.What is the distinction among Components, Modules & Mambots?
Just to make things a bit more confusing, sometimes a function will require a combination of these tools. For example, the Banners and the Polls functions include both a Component and a Module.
While the technical distinction between these items is useful information, the most important points concern what they can do, and how you can use them. To assist with that, we have provided below a quick summary of the Components and Modules bundled in your Mambo package.
