    The file your looking for in the edugeek template is index.php which can found under templates/axe_rescheek_blue/

    The line your looking for is:

    <jdoc:include type="modules" name="user2" style="XHTML" />

    Located under footer.

    Thank you, but the code in the index file doesn't let you adjust its position (I think). What file do I need to do this? Is it a CSS file? if so, which one?

    Thanks

    If you take a look at my website Welcome to Wiham Hall Preparatory School I want to add the box to the right of the latest events module box. So it would be under the home page article. Could you guide me through how I do this?

    Thats exactly it. In fact I might later move to splitting up that one long box in several smaller ones, but for now that will do.

    How do I make it?

    Unfortunately to achieve what you want is not just a matter of moving user2

    The best bet would be to create a number of new module positions, 5 for example. 2 would be the same as the left / right positions and you would have 3 new ones in between.

    To do this you would first have to add the new module positions in the index.php file ,you would also need to make these module positions collapsible when no content is published to them.

    Once you have done this the next part is to style the new module positions via css.

    Another option would be to edit the index.php, copy the breadcrumb position and move it lower down the page.

    I haven’t got access to my dev install at the moment but will check as soon I have.

    Moving the breadcrumb position does sound like an idea. What CSS file would I need to edit to do this? I have never created any modules before nor edited their positions so if you have any help on this I would very much appreciate it.

    Thanks

    To move the breadcrumb position you'll need to edit the templates index.php file

    Right to move the breadcrumb position to where you want it open the index.php file of your chosen theme (siteroot\templates\axe_rescheek_xxxx) with a text editor and look for the following code starting at line 102

    Code:
    <!-- Mainbody //-->
    <div class="mainbodybg">
    	<div class="container">
    		<div class="columnkiri"><jdoc:include type="modules" name="left" style="XHTML" /></div>
    		<div class="columntengah">
    			<div id="pathway"><jdoc:include type="modules" name="breadcrumb" /></div>
    			<div id="message"><jdoc:include type="message" /></div>
    			<div class="component"><jdoc:include type="component" /></div>
    		</div>
    		<div class="columnkanan"><jdoc:include type="modules" name="right" style="XHTML" /></div>
    	</div>
    </div>
    you want to move line 107 to line 110 as shown here

    Code:
    <!-- Mainbody //-->
    <div class="mainbodybg">
    	<div class="container">
    		<div class="columnkiri"><jdoc:include type="modules" name="left" style="XHTML" /></div>
    		<div class="columntengah">
    			<div id="pathway"><jdoc:include type="modules" name="breadcrumb" /></div>
    			<div id="message"><jdoc:include type="message" /></div>
    			<div class="component"><jdoc:include type="component" /></div>
    	<div id="pathway"><jdoc:include type="modules" name="breadcrumb" /></div>
    		</div>
    		<div class="columnkanan"><jdoc:include type="modules" name="right" style="XHTML" /></div>
    	</div>
    </div>
