I have manged to build the layout I want for my Magento store, but I’m having some trouble getting blocks into the layout. For example, I would like to have a list of the top level categories in the ‘left’ block, but I can’t seem to figure out how to do it.
My layout for the homepage has 3 columns, each picking up the referenced names (left, content and right) and I can see how to remove or add callouts etc. I just want a simple category list in the left column though.
a) find the block I’m looking for (should it be categories, or shopping cart etc.)
b) place that block on the page
Please help! I’ve attached a screenshot for reference.
