DotNetNuke® Guided Tour

Move a Module

You can move a Module from one location on a Page to another.  That might be changing the order of modules within a Pane or moving the module from one pane to another.  You can also move a module from one page to another.

There are two different ways to move Modules on a Page.  You can either use the commands in the Module Actions Menu or you can use Drag & Drop.

Step By Step: Moving with the Module Actions Menu

The Module Actions Menu is available on virtually any module Container.  We'll use the menu commands to change the position of two Text/HTML modules on a page.

1.   Hover the mouse over the Module Actions Menu and scroll down to the Move menu item.  The Move To commands are always present and may be different for another Skin.  There is one Move To command for each Pane on the skin.

The Move commands vary depending upon the location of the module.  Since the example is at the bottom of a column, there is no option to move down (only up).

2.   Select the Menu item that identifies where the Module should be moved to.

Step By Step: Moving with Drag & Drop

The Drag & Drop functionality is available on virtually any module where a Title is visible.  We'll use Drag & Drop to change the position of two Text/HTML modules on a page.

1.   Left click and hold the mouse down over the Title of a Module.  You'll notice the module develop an outline around it.  This outline indicates the module is ready to be "dragged" to a new location.

2.   Keeping the left mouse button down, drag the Module over another Pane.  As you pass over the other pane it will highlight, indicating the module may be "dropped" in this new location.

3.   Release the mouse button when the desired Pane is highlighted.  The Page will refresh and the Module will be in its new location.

Step By Step: Move to Another Page

Moving a Module from one Page to another must be done from the Module Settings page.

1.   Hover the mouse over the Module Actions Menu and scroll down to the Settings menu item.  Alternatively, many Containers display an icon for the Module Settings which can simply click.

 OR 

2.  On the Module Settings page, scroll down to the Advanced Settings section.

3.   Select a Page from the Move To Page dropdown to move the Module to.

4.   Click Update at the bottom of the Module Settings page to move the Module to the new page (and save any other changes).
