Is there a way to apply a general all over 2column-left to all pages, regardless of what they are?

I have move the logo / navigation into the left nav bar, on home page / categories / product view, but I’ve been unsuccessful in doign the same with the checkout / sign up / login etc pages.

I’ve modified the xml schema to reflect the 2columnleft, but I can’t output the left column on the checkout stages (just displays the space for it).

Any ideas?

Anyone? smile

Trying to place the left column (2columns-left) on all pages, done most pages now, but the pages I’m having problems with are:

The one page checkout process (Can get the left column space, but can’t get anything to output there, which I have the logo/navigation)
The sign up / login pages

I suspect there’s other pages as well that I might of missed, but I’ve managed to implement it into the: home / category / product / cms pages.

Your problem is probably that checkout.xml explicitly removes the left column on most checkout pages:

<remove name="left"/>

Yeah, figured it all out heh, took me a while smile

Removed all the remove name left / right etc stuff, and added the nav to the default section in the bottom of checkout area, just login etc area’s left now so will sort those out later tonight.

From a templating / design point of view this is the most nicest system to use to be honest, allows a lot of flexibility.

It’s good that magento requires you to learn how th esystem works, which offers / brings in much more flexibility than any other non-inhouse system.

Good stuff smile
