Moduls and positions


I have some questions:

1. How I can change positions of these moduls on frontpage, and how I can turn off it:

-- Recently Compared Products
-- Recently Viewed

2. Why I don’t see Newsletter modul on a webpage (it is turned on on backend)

3. How I can change order of moduls in pages (front and othe pages)

4. How can I change position of modul currency (where I can change aktual currency in a frontpage), because now It show under Top-Main menu.

Thanx for your quick answer.

You can do that using Joomla Extension Manager -> Module Manager and you can set the modules to a more suitable position for your needs.

Also you have to have in mind that the page that every module shows is defined with the menu item that this page has.

Please let me know if there is anything else you need help with.

Hi there,
@pascm: these are issues of magento, mate
#Regarding 1:



This dir contains template file which will show recent viewed product, you can comment code or remove (whatever you wanna)
#Regarding 2:
Please open this file:



and make the following change:


<!-- Mage_Newsletter            <<<<< Remove this comment
  <reference name="right">
  <block type="newsletter/subscribe" name="left.newsletter" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"/>
-->           <<<<< Remove this comment

#Regarding 3:
I see 2 good guides for you for changing block position:…agento-sidebar…tro-to-layouts
#Regarding 4:
Could you make a snapshot of this module and the way you want it appears ?

Thanx for your answer.

Now I have next question:
-- how I can make new modul position in my magento template?

I need on my page modul like Position 6 in a new JM Odinis (logos of brands).

In order to create a block position:
-- Open up file:



inside this block:


<block type="page/html" name="root" output="toHtml" template="page/3columns.phtml">

add your new block (I add in line 90 and named it position-16):


<block type="cms/block" name="position-16">
	<action method="setBlockId"><block_id>position-16</block_id></action>

-- In directory:



Open template file respective to your current template you are using, as demo we use 3columns layout, so I open 3columns.phtml.
Underneath the main container:


<div id="ja-container" class="wrap ja-ri">

add your code to display your new block


<div id="ja-slidersl" class="wrap">
	<div class="main clearfix">
		<div class="main-inner clearfix">
			<div class="main-inner1 clearfix">
				<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('position-16') ?>

This above piece of code is in Odinis template, just a sample, so please change css to adapt with your site

-- Create your new static block as in Jm Odinis, this block contains a product slider, so go to Backend > CMS > Static block > Create new block and config as attached snapshot.
