Gantry 5 Positions

Postby Compositeur » Tue Feb 13, 2018 1:15 pm

Gantry 5 (Helium template) when installed, shows available positions as:

G5_helium :

1 Aside
2 Debug
3 Sidebar


Active positions:

1 aside
2 menuload
3 newsflash
4 position-2
5 position-4
6 position-7
7 sidebar


Three questions:

(i) What is he difference between 'G5_helium' and 'Active positions'?

(ii) Are the 'Aside' and 'Sidebar' positions under the two headings, the same?

(iii) I have tried using '/?tp=1' at the end of the URL to show template positions, but Active positions position-2, position-4 and position-7 do not show. Where are these?

Many thanks in advance guys. :geek:

Those positions are in other trmplates or embedded into articles. You have modules assigned to those positions.
