1. Manage Modules

Before you can apply a module it has to be installed. Modules are provided as archives that can be extracted to any subdirectory you create in the ConPresso directory. For more information please refer to the module's documentation.

ConPresso will automatically recognize modules placed in its directory and list them in the view “Manage Modules”.


The column “Modules” lists the names of the modules ConPresso has recognized. The module directory is shown in brackets.


The column “Manage” at least contains the four standard buttons Install, Activate, Deactivate and Uninstall. Some modules might come with additional buttons in this column.

If ConPresso has recognized a module you can start its installation. This installation will generate database tables and default entries, for example.

If any other actions are required, just follow the directions and messages displayed in the course of the module's installation.

Modules can be activated and deactivated for performance reasons. To use a module please click on the button Activate.

After you have activated a module you might come across new entries in the ConPresso backend navigation.

If you do not need a module for a limited time, deactivate it by clicking on the button Deactivate. You can activate it again anytime you need it.

if you do not need a module anymore, you can uninstall it by clicking on this button. Please remember to deactivate it first, though.

If you uninstall a module, all database information and tables will be removed. All data specific to that module will be lost. For security reasons you should therefore backup your ConPresso database first.

After you have used the Uninstall function you can delete the module directory from the ConPresso directory.

If there are more buttons in the column “Manage”, they are specific to that module. For more information on their functions please read the module's documentation.
