I’m new to Magento, but already loving it .
I have read the designers guide and browsed through the forum but there still a lot of things I don’t get !
For instance...I was messing around with the defaut/layout/page.xml file and the template/page/html/header.phtml . I saw that on header.phtml the top menu is called with <?=$this->getChildHtml('topMenu')?>
and that on page.xml there is a “ <block type="core/text_list" name="top.menu" as="topMenu"/>" wich I think is what’s actually being called on the header page with getChildHtml
The thing is that if I change that name as="topMenu" for something else...say “topMenu_something” , or if I even delete that line, the menu is still showing..I don’t get how , I searched through the project and there is no other xml file that has the as="topMenu" reference....
Maybe I got it all wrong? ‘cos makes no sense
