and below this you add the next code. You have to make to adds
<block type="core/text_list" name="content_homepage" as="content_homepage"/>
Then you have to make a block. YOu know how to.. right? or take any block from catalog.xml and try. and change the reference name to “content_homepage”.
Now make another template...or modify one existing… not the one you use for any other pages. if you are using all...create another one. and search in template/page/[your_template].phtml this line
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('content') ?>
and change it with this one
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('content_homepage') ?>
Now in Admin… where you manage the homepage… change the Layout for homepage from Costum Design tab to [your_template_name].
And that’s it. It should work. Thanks and best regards.
