The program is really nice!! But I use Joomla and one of the things that really need (and I guess a lot of people wants) is new module positions. I can only see left, right, top, footer,header, but If I want to create an user3 module above the content area, or maybe user3 and user2 above the content area?? Or any module positions in another area of the website? In my opinion a customuzable module position will give a powerup for joomla site, because thats exactly what is missing to create great joomla website, people like dosnt know how to create a new module position without destroying the template, so I guess this feature it will be very welcome!!!!! (please forgive if this option is already available, but I didnt find in the software, so please tell me where is it??)

Yes, that's exactly what is keeping me for buying the license, I cant find the way to create new positions for modules in the content area or inside the header.... ¿Is there any way?

It's very easy to add your own modules. Just edit the index.php file and code them in.
<jdoc:include type="modules" name="mymodule" />

What "lots" might they be?

I have used someone else's copy enough to know that I will buy this program when the lack of possible module positions is addressed.

Its really cool and usefull but without the extra module positions that most joomla templates have today its just a little dissapointing. This software really need that feature. Lots of options for module positions is what makes comercial joomla templates really great. Put that option in Artisteer and you will have lots of new customers, me included ;-)

I agree with Mark. I'd like to move the entire layout around and have modules anywhere. I use a plugin called modules anywhere that really unhandicaps me on some things but I still can't put the search where I want it without coding--which I don't like doing.

:-@ You are absolutely right Mark! Worth buying. I just realized the many module created by Artisteer.

O:)
Sorry for my English
I created a new module position in template Artisteer and it was not so dificult, what I did was to add <jdoc:include type="modules" name="mymodule" /> desired position and then give the name and mymodule added to the file name xml mymodule.

In my case I need a module position at the top right to create Corner Page Peel I open index.php is added <jdoc:include name="page_peel" type="modules" /> immediately after <body> and I opened the xml file is added <position> page_peel </ location> so load the admin module in my new modul position.
it works

it would be great if the 960 grid system was integrated into all templates

Yeah that grid system is awesome. I saw it being used by Rocket Theme's Gantry template system - very, very flexible. I installed gantry but their documentation was appalling and I just never got to figuring out how to customize the template.

you need to include the position in the templateDetails.xml file too under <positions>...
<position>myModulePosition</position>
...</positions>

Also it is advisable in the index.php to wrap the jdoc:include in a containing div e.g. <div class="myModulePositionWrapper"><jdoc:include ... /></div> for styling purposes

I would love to habe the possibility to define new module positions too.
Maybe like drag and drop those existing postions and ad news module positions.

Beside the module positions there should be the option to modify the lay-out of these module positions!

After adding /index.php?tp=1 at the end of my site I didn't see all modulepositions - did I accidentally delete them while working on the template? Any idea how I could fix this without modifying any code? 'Cause I'm not very into coding...

@marc - In order to see all moduleposition, you have to enable this function in joomla, in your template. See http://joomla.dechiffre.fr/6 . Sorry, it's in french. But with the snapshots may be you manage to find your way.

marc - I believe you will only see those defined. If you have no right-hand column, you won't see posisions 3, 6 and 8.

Marc, I agree with Per Hertz, and also would like to add that if you need positions 7, 4, 5 and 6,8,3, two-column or three-column Page layout (! not the content layout) should be chosen in Artisteer, You can do this by going to Layout tab -> Columns -> Two columns/Three columns.

You should note that if there is only one sidebar in the template, the positions 7,4,5 are used by default.
In case there are two sidebars (with Three-Columns layout), the positions for the left one 7,4,5 and for the right one 6,8,3 are used.

What would good is a blank template, where you can add module positions from beginning..

At the moment I'm also looking for the possibity to add positions. I now that Artisteer is there to create templates, but it already creates position, so its possible. It would be great if we are able to add a position anywhere in a template

No one wants to go into the coding to do this each and every time a design is needed as it would need to be done each and every time the theme is updated.

Can't you simply allow for modules to be created? What's so complicated here?? :-X

We've been asking for this for YEARS!!

This appears to work in Protostar but I cant get it to work with an Artisteer generated template
