If you have Joomla templates installed on your site but are not using them anywhere and anymore, you may have noticed the module positions offered in your module settings have become very crowded, cumbersome and confusing. You can tidy up and declutter this section of your site by unpublishing or uninstalling those unused templates. That way their module positions will not longer show up as available options.
