unfortunately, ModernCV has changed again. I used the answer from the question ModernCV Casual Header for my last CV, which worked perfectly, but now I get the error "Undefined control sequence. \makecvtitle". I really have no idea what I have to change in order to make this working again. I'd appreciate your help very much!

I just saw in the updates, that such an option is now included in the package. You have to include the option [left] in \moderncvstyle. I'll learn to read the changelog next time beforehand.
