I’m trying for hours to add a custom skeleton template for the Home page but I don’t understand how things work…
First I just tried to change the the skeleton template from 2 columns to 3 columns. In the designer guide it is said that this could done in the layout xml files but I don’t understand in which file and especially why there isn’t a single xml file that contains informations relative to a page.
For example, I expected something like this :
Instead, if I have well understood, there the possibility to assign a skeleton template to a page in any xml files of the layout folder, isn’t it ?
Moreover you have to know which is the name of the section that represent a page. “<catalog_category_default>” represent the category page, but I still not know which is the section name for the Home page.
Finally, I read in a post of this forum that it is possible to change the skeleton template in CMS -> Manage Pages. Well it works, but I can only use the existing templates. I added a .phtml in the template/Page folder but it doesn’t appear in the list of available layouts. Could anybody explain me how to add my custom skeleton template ?
Thank you in advance for any explanations on how all that stuff works.
