How to create a Joomla! Module Position to appear in the Content area of your Joomla! site

First, navigate to Extensions>Plugin Manager> and make sure “Content – Load Module” is published/active. If there is a red “x” beside this Plugin, click it to make the plugin active.

The plugin you just activated will allow you to use a syntax such as “{loadposition jvhead}” in your content item(s) in order to render modules. So now, we want to create a custom module position for JVHead.

To create a module position for jvhead, you will need to open yourjoomlasite.com/templates/your_current_template/templateDetails.xml. You should see an array of predefined positions such as:

<position>left</position>
<position>right</position>
<position>top</position>

Add this to the array:

<position>jvhead</position>

Save the file and upload. We have just created the “jvhead” module position.

Now you can create a content item within a category or a static content item if you prefer, and within the wysiwyg editor box just type {loadposition jvhead}.
