New to magento… I think it is great… wish there were more documentation.
I am working with version 220.127.116.11 and want to build an online store that is not that much different than the included demo. So I figured it was much easier to just create a copy and troll around trying to figure things out (I have been reading whatever I can find on the subject). I would like to replace the top navigation for categories with a vertical list of categories like seen in many online stores.
I located template/catalog/navigation/left.phtml which seems like it might be designed for that purpose.
What do I need to do to put category navigation vertically in the left column rather than horizontally at the top?
