I'm having a problem where I haven't been able to save the position of the different modules that I have on my internal test site. I found this site which I was able to get the basic idea on how to setup the different modules, but I haven't been able to save their position like google does on igoogle.

    You would have to store that information for later if you wanted to use it.  Either in a database, an xml file, a csv, a cookie.  You would have to associate the user with their specific layout (if it is a different layout for multiple users) so maybe a cookie, or if they have to be logged in, then you could store it in a database with their user_id.

    There are a number of different ways of doing it; it just depends on your setup.
