Big Appetizer

To define the look of your appetizers for position 1 you have to implement the "preview-view" in your xml. An overview aboout different views in general you find here: View-Tutorial

An example of a minimal preview-view:

<Content type="html" view="preview"><![CDATA[

<img src="YOURPICTURE" alt="alternative"/>

<ul>
   <li><a href="linktoimpressum" target="_blank">Impressum</a></li>
   <li><a href="linktoagb" target="_blank">AGB</a></li>
   <li><a href="linktodatenschutz" target="_blank">Datenschutz</a></li>
</ul>

]]></Content>

Small Appetizer

The image for position 2,3 and 4 is also defined in your XML. You just have to put the URL of the picture in your ModulePrefs.

<ModulePrefs
    .
    .
    .
    icon="images/youricon.jpg"
