Hi All,

Using the Modern theme, I’m looking for the best method to have the cart (that exists in the left bar) appear in the right bar while using the 2col right bar layout.

After scouring the web and referencing my docs, I’m at information overload. Looking to see if someone can clarify this procedure as clean as possible.

Thanks in advance!

After reading through the Designers guide to Magento, the waters have definitely become more clear.

Trying to locate the content block for the cart sidebar, I keep searching catalogue.xml when it was located in checkout.xml. Editing the reference from “left” to “right” did exactly what I wanted.

From:

<reference name="left">
            <
block type="checkout/cart_sidebar" name="cart_sidebar" template="checkout/cart/sidebar.phtml" before="-">
...

To:

<reference name="right">
            <
block type="checkout/cart_sidebar" name="cart_sidebar" template="checkout/cart/sidebar.phtml" before="-">
...
