Thanks Saguaros.. actually yesterday I was able to installa couple, but with a few bugs and design issues, but did what it was supossed to.. however, in the case of the facebook fan page block, I read some topics on Magento forum, where a friend recommended to create a static block witht the iframe facebook code, and then create a widget and assign the static block into it.. however, i still need to understand some basic concepts as..

1 How to find and determin Magento template positions to be used to place objects such as widgets.
2 How to add extentions and place those in specific positios like, left, rigth, position1, position2… just like in joomla…

some help on this please!! best regards

Hi ruku,

With each template released, we have guide to should module position of this template such as: http://www.joomlart.com/forums/showt…127#post311127
Then you can create static block assigned to this position. Inside this static block, you can display widgets or extensions you want.
For example with this JM Pixeri template: http://www.joomlart.com/forums/showt…xeri-Userguide

-- ‘4 in 1’ static block displays widgets
-- ‘Coming Soon’ static block displays JM Product Slider module

You can know more about static block in this video guide
or how to add static block in magento
