How to Find the Module Postions in a Joomla 2.5 Template

In Joomla 1.5, you could type ?tp=1 behind the url to find all the module positions of a template. In Joomla 2.5 however that doesn’t work by default. An extra security feature has been added to safe guard that information. In this tutorial we will show you how to display the module positions of your template.

Let’s get started!

Go to the Template Manager Options


In your Administrative backend go to Extensions >> Template Manager >> Wait for the page to load >>Options

Enable Preview


Set Preview Module Positions to Enabled


Either Save & Close or Save



Behind your domain root url, type ?tp=1 e.g.

Hit enter.



You now have all your module positions for your template.

When you are done, you can go back through the process and disable the preview module positions option.
