a blog entry is.. like a diary entry and is never in the same place and only on one page, while a module is a little box with stuff inside it that's always on the same place on every page

confusing enough

yeah like Icas said, a module is like a sidebar with information in it and the information stays the same. And a blog entry is where you write like a diary.

...It's exactly what they've said, and a little more!

A module is a box on the side of your entries that you can put pretty much whatever you want in. Some people have a mini profile, or a to-do list, favorite movies, a list of friends, links to other sites, and other things like that. Pretty much whatever else you want to put on your blog outside of an entry, you can put it in a module.
Look around at some other people's sites. The smaller boxes on the side of the entires? Those are modules. Try looking around to get some ideas for what you'd like to have in yours. =)

Hope this helps!

Bullet: You can have as many modules as you like.

Oy, let's clear this up:

Your page consists of two columns, though some layouts have more. The entries usually go on the right/center of the page and all the modules would be on the left. Thus, you can have as many mods or entries as you like--your page would grow longer to accomodate them all. Got it?

Or was that confusing, too...? Ooh, boy...

Aiyah...the more explanations that are given, the less I understand it!!! (from a newbie point of view)

I wanna try too!

Blog = Personal Entry (about life, day that happened, how you feel)

Module = Edit-able Info you choose to put on ur page that you wanna showcase to the public that goes to your page. Whether it be on your favorite food and color to what kind of music you like.

How bout that?

Did I do any good? Hello? :crickets:

This isn't to whore out my 'blog but you can take a look. I have several different modules. The top one (all my modules are to the left currently) is for the eagles. I went under modules and created a new one. At that point you put anything into the box you want. I put in the HTML code to put in the eagles logo and then simply enter the text I want in the box.

Now the modules screen offers some options. One of them is the CD looking icon which will open amazon in a new window. My bottom module is a 'cd review' module where I show the artwork from the current cd that I am listening to and telling you what I think of it. By clicking on the cd icon it opens up the window and you can enter the name of the artist that you want and search for the cd that you want. But that's just bonus stuff..and basically just recreates what I made.

But a module is info that you may want to change from time-to-time but not with every entry. You can edit a module at ANY time at all. Just like I (tried to) updated the eagles module after every game to change the score of the previous game and the details of the next game.

There's a little snippet of code to create a list of links to previous entries so that your readers can go back to previous entries that sound like might interest them.

I have another module which I use for getting traffic. Has the little icons and search box in it. The code is given out by each service that I use and I simply enter each code into the module editing box to add it.

Basically you can make as many modules as you want (although as it was pointed out, each page will constantly extend downwards to fit them all if you have a lot of modules and/or a ton of content in them) and have as much of anything that you want in them.

Hopefully this helps somewhat. But definitely follow the others' suggestions with going around to various other members' blogs and see what modules they have for ideas. If you like something that someone has you can click on the link to their profile (top right hand corner of their blog) and then use the box to send them a message and politely ask them how they did whatever they did that interests you. 90%+ of the times they will gladly tell you how they did it!

Good luck!
