Joomla - Create a new module position

1

Open the index.php file of the template you wish to edit (if you can't see your website's code in there, then it's usually in a "tmpl", or some "template", maybe "layouts" sounding folder, one of the files). Then locate the place in the template where you wish to put the new position. Insert this code there:

<jdoc:include type="modules" name="newposition"   />
The next two steps are optional, just to see it's name in the backend's Module Manager's position selection list.
2

Open the template's TemplateDetails.xml file and locate these start and end tags:

<positions></positions>

Then add

<position>newposition</position>

<positions>
 <position>debug</position>
 <position>position-0</position>
 <position>position-1</position>
 <position>position-2</position>
