Hi, I’m new on magento, and i’m trying to display the left nav on the item page of my store. Currently the left nav is showing up in the whole site (home, category list page, and item list page), but in the item page I have the right nav, i’d like to have only the left nav in the whole site.

Any ideas?

thx!

Go to app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/catalog.xml and find:

<!--
Product view
-->

    <
catalog_product_view>
        <!-- 
Mage_Catalog -->
        <
reference name="root">
            <
action method="setTemplate"><template>page/2columns-right.phtml</template></action>
        </
reference>

Change the 2columns-right.phtml to 3columns.phtml.

You might have to edit the box.css if there’s width issues.
