You have built a custom magento extension (magento module) and you want to package it and submit it to magento connect (magento extension directory).
This article shows how to create Magento extension package. I have included images for every step which I followed while creating extension package for my module (Auto Currency Switcher).
I was building a custom module in Magento. I had created a system.xml file for storing configuration data from admin. From the below system.xml file, you can see that I have created a section named ‘My Module Name‘ which can be accessed from Admin –> System –> Configuration.
In the file below, I have just displayed the section and groups name. I have omitted others fields with dots, as they are not necessary here.
Suppose, you have created a new module or you have an existing module. You have a frontend page for your module. You want to set or change title, keywords, and/or description of your module page. Well, you can do so by adding few lines of code in layout xml file of your module.
The layout file for you module is present in design/frontend/default/default/layout/YourModuleName.xml. I suppose that you are using default theme and package. The default/default/ in the above path might be different if you are using custom theme and package.
You can easily get controller name, action name, router name and module name in template file or in any class file.
