    Greate a optimal module position:

    Unfortunately, due to the vast number of templates for Joomla, this question cannot be answered
    universally. So the best method for optimal results is to create a own (optimal) module position.
    This tutorial will show you how to achieve this with in less than 3 minutes.
    This tutorial assumes that your website is already online and you're accessing it with a FTP client.
    Step 1:
    Login to your webspace with FTP and change to your template folder ( /templates/*YourTemplate*/
    ). In this tutorial, we will be creating (as an example) a additional module position in joomla 2.5's
    beez2 template, however, this method works for all versions of Joomla and for all templates.
    You can now see the content of your template folder. The two files that need to be edited are marked
    in the picture below.

    ftp module

    Step 2:
    Now edit with a UTF8 aware text editor (NOT word or wordpad) the file 'templateDetails.xml'
    (depending on your FTP client and editor, you need to download the file first to your local computer
    and upload it again after editing).
    Look for the section <positions> , this section defines all available module positions of your
    template. Now create a additional module position by ading the line
    <position>*Positionname*<position> as shown in the picture (we chose the module position name
    extrobgs for this example, you can of course use your own module position name). Save the file and

    upload it again to your webspace.

    position module

    Step 3:
    Next, edit the file index.php the same way like in step 2.
    Look for the <body> Tag and add a div element immediately after it (see picture below). Within the
    opening and closing div tag, add the Joomla Tag <jdoc:include type="modules"
    name="*Positionname*" /> (replace *Positionname* with your the name you chose). This Tag will
    display the actual module content, in this case, it will display the Za Sidebar menu. Save your file
    and upload it back to your webspace.

    module insert

    Step 4:

    As last step, go to the backend of your Joomla site and publish the Za Sidebar menu in the module position you just created. Now, you will see the module menu in your sites frontend.
