How to Find the Module Positions 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
