Hi,

No I am not asking how to move content from the left-col to the right. wink

I need the exact opposite. I want to move content up or down, changing the order basically. i.e. moving the shopping cart above the related products, or the compare box above the layered navigation. Your help is appreciated.

Thanks for the reply but the video did not show me how to change the order of the items in the left/right nav bar. I’ve seen other videos that shows how to move items from right to left or vise versa, but I haven’t seen a video or post for that matter that shows how to sort them. Anyone have any ideas?

before="-" (always place on the very top) (I believe you can only have one for each side as in one of my theme I have two, one for everypage, and one for product view only and the second ones doesn’t obey the rule.)

before="right.permanent.callout"

after="right.permanent.callout"

example:  <block type="catalog/product_list_related" name="catalog.product.related" after="cart_sidebar" template="catalog/product/list/related.phtml"/>

I have posted similar answer before, but couldn’t find the thread. You may want to search these keywords ‘sort order for left/right column’s blocks’.
