    On the 1.0.x series we could add new module positions on the joomla installation via Template manager- module positions (total 50 places).

    How can we do this in 1.5?

    Thank!

    Yah, I’m not sure why the Joomla Developers decided to change it, but you now have to add the module positions within the templatedetails.xml

    <positions>
    <position>hornav</position>
    <position>breadcrumbs</position>
    <position>banner</position>
    <position>left</position>
    <position>right</position>
    <position>top</position>
    <position>search</position>
    <position>topsl</position>
    <position>user1</position>
    <position>user2</position>
    <position>user3</position>
    <position>user4</position>
    <position>user5</position>
    <position>user6</position>
    <position>user7</position>
    <position>user8</position>
    <position>user9</position>
    <position>footer</position>
    <position>syndicate</position>
    <position>debug</position>
    </positions>

    Simply add another line(s) with <position>your module position</position> and place it in the order it will appear within the list.

    I’m not sure, but when you create a new module on the position field you can writte the new position name and when you save is on your list, remember the position name have to be in your template too

    You can double click on the module position area and type any position name you want. However, that position should be called via index.php page of your template or the module can’t display

    New users of Joomla tend to find template module positions confusing and possibly frustrating. Joomla 1.5 has improved the way templates work to ensure this is less confusing, however some users might still find it hard to add template positions to their templates. This article will attempt to clear the air about template module positions.
    Module Positions

    In the Joomla 1.5 Module Manager ( Extensions > Module Manager, you can assign your modules to a number of positions. As opposed to Joomla 1.0, where positions where defined at website level, the positions in Joomla 1.5 are defined per template. Thus the template positions problems is reduced, and responsibility is now with the template author to ensure that template positions defined in the template details file, actually exist in the template!

    Thanks for this. Saved me a lot of time trying to figure it out.
