How to preview Template Positions

joomla support cheshire manchester merseyside north west ukEvery Joomla! Template contains a number of POSITIONS.

Each POSITION has a unique name and is a placeholder for one or more Modules.

A Module is a mechanism for controlling when and where to present almost any kind of  website content in a Joomla! website.

When you assign a Module to a Position it may not be immediately obvious where the Module will be displayed in the website Front End.

Not all Position names clearly indicate where you should look in the Front End to see the published Module.

Only enable Preview Module Positions when absolutely necessary.

When done, select Disabled.

Preview Module Positions is disabled by default in a WYNCHCO website design.
