Hello!

I have 2 Questions:

1. How can i get this Layout: http://demo.magentocommerce.com/electronics/computers ??? I mean the “Shop by” Shopping Options, where can i enable it?

2. How can i edit the left and the right Bar? I would like to do following things:
- Deleting the Dog on the left bar and replace it with an Image of our Company
- Move the Newsletter-Box from the left to the right Bar
- Delete the “Back to School” Box on the right side and add my own Boxes with Articles of our Company

Uhm...and sry for my bad English, i’m German :D

greetz,

The filtered navigation depends on attributes, when you have an attribute set with sufficient attributes in it, these automatically show up as ‘shop by’.

The ‘callouts’ are not so obvious at first. They are controlled in the layout xml files and there is no easy way to change them from admin.

There are a series of screen casts regarding these setup issues, I recommend that you watch them all, then try to understand the design guide, then dive in and try moving things around in the template and layout files so that you can work towards getting the look you want.

Unfortunately there is a bit of a learning curve. Also helpful, if you turn on template path hints in ‘developer’ in admin->config you can see what template files are used where.

I can not find template path hints in ‘Developer’ submenu. Why it is happened ? For info, I’m using version 1.1.6
