Somebody has to know where this is and how to edit it.

I NEEEEED the file for the “My Account” section of the site. It contains the dashboard and several left sided callouts but I have NO idea where the layout .phtml file for this is. I have even begun searching the core code. Someone MUST know. Please help!

app/code/core/mage/customer has all the class files

app/design/frontend/default/default/template/customer has all the template files The dashboard is actually app/design/frontend/default/default/template/customer/account/dashboard.phtml.

The layout xml file is /app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/customer.xml.  If you search for customer_account_index, all the stuff inside of there controls the content in the dashboard.

customer_account_index tells you where the controller for the page is located (if you know about zend’s front controller, finding things becomes easier) and if you replace the underscores with slashes, you get the URL for the page.  The controller is at app/code/core/mage/customer/controllers/AccountController.php in the indexAction function.

Turn on template path hints in your admin section.

Admin > System > Configuration > Change Store Scope to Main Website > Developer tab > Debug tab (has template path hints option)

Then check out what changes in the front end. Go to the “my account” area and see what template file are being used.

Oh… MY.... USER…

Why have I not known of this before. With this you could completely change the way magento looks and feels in a matter of a day. I am soo sad right now. and yet so happy. If I was savy enough to make a crying smiley face I would.

THANK YOU
