Hi, I am new to Magento and would be greatful if you could offer me some help. smile.

I understand that ‘page.xml’ is a pretty important file and controls the layout of most of the store pages? However when I make a change to it (or even delete all its content) my store seems to work fine still.

Basically I have created a homepage which uses the ‘3columns.phtml’ file and am now trying to move the ‘search box’ from its position in the header to the left column. What should my steps be to successfully move it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I seem to have got myself in a bit of a muddle.

Cheers,
Will
