Insert a module in an article in Joomla 1.5x and create a menu link to it

Did you know that you can insert any module in an article in Joomla 1.5x? It is relatively simple; here are the steps of how to do this.

1) Enable the Content - Load Module plugin.
2) Create an article for the module. Name the article the same name as the module. For example, if you want to insert a Mortgage Calculator module in an article, then your respective article for this module would be named "Mortgage Calculator."
3) Type {loadposition userxx} in the body of the article, where userxx is your custom user position. Make sure that your user position is unique and has not been used by your template.  For example in my template, user99 has not been used. So in my article, I will use {loadposition user99}.
4) Open your module under Module Manager, enter the same userxx in the Position box. In my case, I entered user99.
5) Create a menu link to your new article/module.

That's all there is to it! Continue reading if you don't know how to create a menu link to your new article/module.

6) Select the menu where you want your article/module to appear.
7) Click on "New," then select "Article," then select "Single Article Layout."
8) Under the Parameters (Basic,) select the article that you have inserted the module in.  In my case, I selected the "Mortgage Calculator" article.
8) Save the new menu link.

That's it! Now you know how to insert a module in an article and create a menu link to it!
