Hello. Need some help.
Can’t get the 3 column layout to show up in modern theme.
I’ve spent a lot of time searching & trying to modify files
but I can’t get it to work properly.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Yes, I did. almost.....
have a look. Hbaetc.com/magento

as you can see the right,left & center are in the wrong places, but they are there non the less.

add to 3columns

<!-- [start] right -->
                <
div class="col-right side-col">
                    
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('right'?>
                    
&nbsp;
                </
div>
                <!-- 
[end] right -->
catalog.xml
<reference name="right">
            <
block type="core/template" before="cart_sidebar" name="catalog.compare.sidebar" template="catalog/product/compare/sidebar.phtml"/>
            <
block type="core/template" name="right.permanent.callout" template="callouts/right_col.phtml"/>
        </
reference>
this code is commented out, so undoo that smile

boxes.css about line 310
.col-main
change width to 500px or what evor you want.

I will try do to on sunday and will let you know.
