{jcomments on}To view template positions in joomla 1.5 you simply append the parameter tp=1 to the end of the url and all the positions show. But this does not work for later versions of joomla out of the box.

 

 

E.G. www.willows-consulting.com/index.php?tp=1

if there are other parameters on the url the the you use &tp=1 at the end of the url like this.

E.G. www.willows-consulting.com/index.php?comp=1&view=2&tp=1

 

Now this does not work in the later versions of joomla as it was seen as a security issue.( why ? because this is the definitive way of finding if a site is running joomla, but this is easy to see from the page source anyways )

 

To see the template positions in joomla 16 and joomla 17 and later versions one has to turn on the option now in the joomla template admin options and then do as you normally did.

 

E.G. www.willows-consulting.com/index.php?tp=1

if there are other parameters on the url the the you use &tp=1 at the end of the url like this.

E.G. www.willows-consulting.com/index.php?comp=1&view=2&tp=1
