A Position is a place-holder to enable the display of Modules outside the Main Body of the website.

All Joomla! Templates include Positions.

A Module must be assigned to a Position before it will be visible in the Front End.

A very simple Template might comprise of just two Positions:

  • Top (dark grey in the image below), and
  • Right (light grey)

and a Main Body (the white area).

2col right

The Main Body is where website Articles are displayed.

It is not a Position, but it serves a similar purpose, namely, controls where content is displayed.

Example: published Articles are by default displayed in the Main Body.

A Position Map is an illustration showing where Positions will display Modules assigned to them in a web browser.

The Position Maps for the latest WYNCHCO Template Designs can be seen below.

Breadcrumbs Position

The Breadcrumbs Module may be published in alternative locations when assigned to the Breadcrumbs Position:

  • above Articles,
  • below Articles, or
  • above and below Articles.

When displayed in two locations, Breadcrumbs may be published in one location when your website is viewed in Landscape View, and the other location when it is viewed in Portrait View.

For example:

above Articles in Landscape View and below Articles in Portrait View.

 

Search Positions (Portrait View)

Three alternative Positions may be used to publish a Smart Search Module:

  • top-search,
  • menu-search, and
  • main-search.

A Smart Search Module assigned to one of these Positions will be visible when a Menu Module is published in the related Menu Position.

For example:

a Smart Search Module assigned to the Menu-Search Position will be visible when a Menu Module is published in the Menu Position.

 

Call Positions (Portrait View)

Three alternative Positions may be used to publish a Call Module:

  • top-call,
  • menu-call, and
  • main-call.

Call Positions are displayed when a website visitor selects the Hamburger Button to display a Menu on a mobile device in Portrait View.

A Call Module assigned to one of these Positions will be visible when a Menu Module is published in the related Menu Position.

For example:

a Call Module assigned to the Menu-Call Position will be visible when a Menu Module is published in the Menu Position.
