I am trying to arrange elements that are in the header.phtml file (inside of a 2columns-right.phtml template) and have them placed in various areas of a page. Can anyone tell me why is it that the breadcrumb tag
will show up in the template frontend in isolation when it is placed outside of the header.phtml template area, but the tag
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('breadcrumbs') ?>
wont. I’m just not sure what I am missing here.
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('topLinks') ?>
At this point in time the Logic of Magento is still confusing the heck out of me.... Both the ‘Designers Guide’ and ‘Intro To Layouts’ articles are quite vague which makes it very hard to pin down the ‘how to’ of advanced custom templating.
What I am trying to achieve is migrating a complete custom designed and coded xhtml page into the Magento framework.
