Who's Online (Module)

This area of the page consists of the Aside section, which sits to the right of the Mainbar section in the Layout Manager.

  • RokAjaxSearch (Module)
  • Custom HTML (Module)

Any mod_custom (Custom HTML) modules are best handled using either RokPad or no editor as a WYSIWYG editor can cause issues with any code that exists in the Custom Output field.

The Site Search area of the front page is a mod_rokajaxsearch module that allows visitors to search your site using the powerful RokAjaxSearch tool.
