How to Display Module Positions in Joomla June 22, 2011

Posted by Tournas Dimitrios in Joomla-1.6.

In this article we will show you how to enable the preview of the module positions in the template by appending “tp=1” to the web address . Unlike Joomla 1.5 , Joomla 1.6 works a bit differently.On Joomla 1.5 , we used to just add tp=1 to the index.php url and we were able to view all the module positions on the front-end template. But on Joomla 1.6 , if you try that, it wont show you the module positions. In order to see the Module Positions on the template on Joomla 1.6 , here is what you have to do :

  • Start by navigating to Extensions -> Template-Manager from your administration panel
  • In the Template-Manager window click on “Options button” (upper right corner )
  • Select “Templates” tab -> click on ” Preview Module Position” and click “Save”
  • Now navigate to Front-page and add “ /index.php?tp=1” after the domain name .
