Hello, I have read the tutorial about the Custom Module Positions, but i will need some help.

 First of all my goal is to add the language switcher, where the login/register buttons now are.
I took those steps...

in the index.php file i insert the following code -->
<div id="s5_header_wrap">

<?php if($s5_pos_logo == "published") { ?>

<div id="s5_logo_module">

<?php s5_module_call('logo','notitle'); ?>


<?php } else { ?>

<img alt="logo" src="<?php echo $s5_directory_path ?>/images/s5_logo.png" id="s5_logo" onclick="window.document.location.href='<?php echo $LiveSiteUrl ?>'" />

<?php ?>

<?php if ($s5_show_menu == "show") { ?>

<div id="s5_menu_wrap">

<?php include("vertex/s5flex_menu/default.php"); ?>


<?php ?>

<div id="s5_minemodule">

<?php s5_module_call('s5_minemodule','notitle'); ?> </div>

<?php if (($s5_login  != "") || ($s5_register  != "")) { ?>

<div id="s5_loginreg">

<div id="s5_logregtm">.......

i named my new position "s5_minemodule"..

In the templateDetails.xml i have inserted my new position --> <position>s5_minemodule</position>

and after that i have created custom.css -->
#s5_minemodule {
position: absolute;
float: right;
margin-left: 700px;
font-weight: 700 !important;
margin-top: 46px;
font-size: 1.1em;
cursor: pointer; }

Because i havent created yet a multilanguage site, for now to see if the code is working, In the admin panel i have createed a custom  module with the name module test and i have inserted just a small text inside...

Now i can see from the code that the elements are been loaded on the site, but i can not see them..

Is there anything else i can do?

here is a link to the site :

Adding a custom module position is not something we provide support for via the forums. If you followed the video tutorial exactly and modified the index.php, template.css and templatedetails.xml with the coding provided there is not reason it shouldn't be working. Sometimes placing your coding block in an incorrect section of the index.php can cause issues with the display.
