Os Blank Template - Editing Module Positions 1 Year, 5 Months ago Karma: 0  
I was under the impression that you could customize the templated module positions and how many of them there area on each row. I can't seem to find any way to do that and no documentation seems to describe the process. If you could help explain it to me it would be much appreciated.

Hello,
Hello,

Thank you.

To get a visual indication of all module positions used on a page you can follow this procedure:-

Joomla 2.5Joomla 3.x In the administrative backend go to Extensions->Template Manager. Click on Options and set Preview Module Positions to enabled.
navigate to the website page you wish to see the module positions for in your web browser.
click into the URL field in your browser and add "?tp=1" to the URL
For example, ordasvit.com/ostemplate/?tp=1


The addition of module positions, as displayed above, is implemented in between the <positions> and </positions> tags. In between those tags in the templateDetails.xml file, add the name of the module position in between a set of <position> and </position> tags

Also documentation for Os Blank Template You can check on page of Os Blank Template


Thanks,
Taras

Hello Taras,
Hello Ordasoft Support,

by adding the position to the templateDetails it shows up at the backend but is not visible in frontend.

My problem is when i try to add the new Module to the index.php by copying the slideshow and change it to something like this:

<?php if ($this->countModules('Slideshow2' || $this->countModules('position-1'): ?>
<div class="row">
<div class="col-lg-12 col-md-12 col-sm-12 col-xs-12">
<jdoc:include type="modules" name="Slideshow2" style="xhtml" />
<jdoc:include type="modules" name="position-1" style="xhtml" />
</div>
</div>
<?php endif; ?>


i put this quote between the feature 1 and globalcontent and upload the new index.php to the server my frontend page is completely blank.

pls what am i doing wrong?

When i try to do it like in the documentation also no succes:
<jdoc:include type="modules" name="slideshow2" style="xhtml" />

Hello, Zylonality

Please check again and if You face any problems, please contact us through our contact form.

Module positions are placeholders in a template. They identify positions within the template and tell the Joomla! application where to place output from modules assigned to a particular position. The template designer has complete control over module positions, creating variations between templates and the respective Joomla! default positions assigned to modules in the installation sample data.

For example, the module position POSITION-1 could be defined to be on the left side of the template to display a site navigation menu. So if a module is assigned the POSITION-1 position, it will be displayed wherever the designer puts that Left module position - not necessarily the left side of the page.
templateDetails.xml

The templateDetails.xml file contains all the installation and core information for a template, including the module positions it utilizes and displays. Here is a brief list of the commonly used names for the various module positions.

Sincerely Yours
