This is a quick tip for Joomla 3.x.

If you want to add a module position directly into the php file of a template override then you can use the following code:

$myModule = JModuleHelper::getModules('my-position');
if(!empty($myModule[0])) {
echo JModuleHelper::renderModule($myModule[0]);

You can update 'my-position' to whatever module position you desire and then simply add your module to that position. Easy!

Most of these extensions are available in free and pro versions with the latter costing money but in our opinion they are all worth it. We only use the pro versions on our websites as they generally offer the most features.
