You can name it whatever you'd like. The key is that it's right after position 5 module and then the code will know to put it after. If you want it to the right of position (which is actually still "after" since code works left to right just like reading a book), then you have to also style it with css to make sure it goes to the right of position 5.
I think it's time to take our Joomla template class and our coding classes :)
We'd highly recommend going through all our training in this order:
1) Template Design 2) HTML Class 3) CSS Class 4) PHP Class
Those classes will give you more than enough information to make the changes that you're wanting to make (and also to easily make the changes that we've helped you with in the past). Also, Firebug is a great tool to help speed up the process. Here's our tutorial on it: www.ostraining.com/blog/joomla/using-fir...it-joomla-templates/
Hope this helps! You can do it! You're improved tremendously in the last year and it's take to take the next step :)
I am viewing the template training video "Building Block 1 - Table of Contents - templateDetails.xml" and am implementing the steps as I go along. After copying and pasting the code for my templateDetails.xml file, I then tried to install it in the Admin section in the backend and received this error message:
Failed loading XML file /home/renchick/public_html/templates/test/templateDetails.xml XML: Start tag expected, '<' not found
Note: To make a 2.5 template show up in the Template Manager, you need to go to the Admin are >> Extensions (menu item) >> Extension Manager (sub-menu item) >> Discover (tab) >> Discover (button) >> select the template >> Install (button)
Note: Joomla 2.5 has a bug that we've reported to the Joomla Bug Squad, wherein a template won't show up in Template Manager if the is different than template folder name. So for now, just know that it's required that the name tag be the same as the folder name. No spaces or special characters are allowed.
