Can I add a Drupal block region over the slideshow?

asked 6 days ago in Drupal Themes by auctions (120 points)
I want to add a form over the slideshow. With CSS I have located a form where I want it, using an existing block . However, if there are future changes to the page that modify the length of the page the form will get relocated accordingly. I have also added a "Widget Area" in TT but even though it's available to use in TT, it doesn't seem to do anything in Drupal.

Thanks in advance for any help.

TemplateToaster provides an option to create widget areas above/below Header/Menu/Slider/Footer, TemplateToaster also provides an option to draw widget areas within Header/Menu/Slider/Footer. To create a widget area inside slider please follow the steps provided below:

Go To TemplateToaster -> Areas -> Draw Positions -> Widget Areas -> Select slideshow from dropdown.

Yes, thank you but as I said in my question I tried that. That didn't export as a block region in Drupal 7. It doesn't export as anything in Drupal 7, that I can find.

To be thorough the .info file does have:

regions[slideshowposition1] =SlideShowPos1

and the page.tpl.php does have:

<?php
$showslideshowposition= !empty($page['slideshowposition1']);
?>
<?php if($showslideshowposition): ?>
<div class=slideshowposition1>
<?php print render($page['slideshowposition1']); ?>
</div>
<?php endif; ?>

However, nothing is rendered in the blocks admin area, nor the block demonstration area, nor in the pull-downs to select a block region.
