We feel like we’re banging our heads a gainst a brick wall at the moment with magentos design setup.
Here is what were trying to do:
We have a single store and want to redesign each top category of the store to that it and its products have the same theme.
We have been round in crcles a couple of times having read through and watched all the design documentation.
We have played with the <CATEGORY_999> elements in the xml but found that it just added the element twice (We wanted to replace the navigation design percategory, but it just added the navigation design twice)
We thought we were onto somthing with custom page layouts (that we add to the config.xml page) only to discover we can add them to categories but not to products.
We really really don’t want to give up on this, so im hopeing you could take a few minutes to guide us on what would be the best approach.
Thanks in advance
