Finding Module Positions for Joomla 1.6 Template

In this quick article I will show you how to find the modules positions of a Joomla 1.6 template if the developer does not provide any module map. We always create a picture with module positions for our templates, but in case you don’t find the picture here is how to preview the module positions on your own website:

Joomla 1.6 Module Positions

First of all you have to activate in the Joomla 1.6 backend this feature.

1. Go to Extensions > Template Manager

2. Click on the Options button at the top right (you will see a pop up window)

3. Enable the Preview Module Positions and click Save.

4. Check the module map on your website using this code: http://yourwebsiteurl.com/index.php?tp=1

Some of modules may be distorted because the preview feature use different CSS style, but to get an idea of how the modules are positioned, this method is very good.
