Hi,
You can easily add more position if you know how to add a position into a Joomla template.
For example, we will add position extend3 after the extend2, as below:
+ Edit template index.php, find block of code:
<?php if($this->countModules('extend2')) { ?>
<div id="mega_hextend2" class="mega_extend2">
  <div id="mega_extend2_w" class="mega_extend2_w">
    <div class="mega_extend2_i">
      <jdoc:include type="modules" name="extend2" style="xhtml" />
    </div>
  </div>
</div>
<?php } ?>
right after above block, add this block:
<?php if($this->countModules('extend3')) { ?>
<div id="mega_hextend3" class="mega_extend3">
  <div id="mega_extend3_w" class="mega_extend3_w">
    <div class="mega_extend3_i">
      <jdoc:include type="modules" name="extend3" style="xhtml" />
    </div>
  </div>
</div>
<?php } ?>

Save the file. go to backend, add a module to this new position (in position text input, type: extend3).

That's it. You can follow the current modules and menu items setting (of your installed site) to follow.

Thanks

and en the template details add the extended3 position to the list..
I did it before i read de reply.. but i got the next problem
i didn´t manage to set the position in the right location of the webpage...
at first it was over the wrapper content... overlaped
then i manage to set with the right paddin like the others extends.. but not to set like a new content... i`m missing someting.. of how to set it after the extend2 in the webpage...
i have been looking in the megascript.js
in there are declaration of extends and the others positions with ifs and elses...
mi php knownledge is basic but still trying to make it work

sorry for the english... high school level :(
thanks in advance

You are right that you need add more code in megascript.js in this case. And you can see js code of current position, extend2 for example, to have the addittional code for extend3.
