After you installed the module successfully, there are just few simple steps left to display it on your site front-end.

Step 1: Access the Module Manager panel

From back-end setting panel of your site, go to: Extensions > Module Manager.

Step 2: Find RAXO module you installed

There are two simple ways to find the new installed module:

- Use Filter > Select type > "RAXO All-mode PRO" or "RAXO All-mode K2"

Step 3: Enable the new installed module

Enable and set position for the module
In the module administration panel go to tab "Module".
To display the module in front-page, you must publish it and choose an appropriate module position.
Note: Not all module positions can be active in front-page, so please make sure the module is assigned to a proper module position of your site template.

RAXO module have many parameters and options. Here we mention the very basic things enough to display the module in front-end of your site. Go to tab "Basic Options". Here you need to decide what is the content source for the module, how many items and in what order you want to display them in the module.

Step 5: Module template configuration

RAXO modules come with three built-in templates and you can easily switch between them.
Go through template options and enable the content elements (date, title, author, hits, etc) you want to be displayed in the module.
