[TYPO3-templavoila] content outside mapped area using frontend editing or list module

It depends on your comfortableness with editing the xml. I only resort to
that if nothing else is working.
I would try a fresh template, created with the UI, and see if you get the
same problem. Perhaps add one element at a time to see if you can catch the
problem point.
The object path allows one to assign content to that area of the template
using a typoscript object (like lib.myObject).
It won't necessarily dictate a separate position for the content unless the
typoscript is somehow responsible (like lib.myObject = COA, etc).
