Ok I am able to get layout updates to work fine in the CMS Custom Design section but I am having difficult getting one to work. I have a custom header.phtml file I created and use through out the site but in the CMS I want it to be different so I created a second one and wanted to do the layout update in the CMS.
It doesn’t seem to like it it whatever I do. I try this
I have tried it withough the as, with a different type and nothing works it just shows the other header. Its weird because if I put
<block type="core/template" name="cms.header" as="header" template="cms/header_about.phtml"/>
<remove name="header" />
It is removing the existing one. Sometimes I just don’t get what I am suppose to put in the layout update. I didn’t think I would have to put the as because that is in the page.xml and figured thats the only place it needed to be. in Page.xml the type is page/header but that didn’t work for me either.
