Hi all!

Firstly let me say i’m completly new to magento and i don’t think the logic behind it has quite clicked yet. Anyway, i’m aiming to create a few custom blocks (?) in my left and right columns.

How to i…

1) Stop blocks appearing (such as the currency)

2) Create custom blocks? I have a few images i like to appear in my left column but kinda stuck on how excatly to get them to appear.

I realise its a complex question, and i have tried searching but haven’t been able to find a comprehensive answer

Many thanks

Hello Stylize ...cool Handle LOL

Ok, 1 - you program the Blocks through “CMS” -> “Static Blocks”
2- The blocks positioning and appearence is usually programed within your theme
3- For detailed instructions, Go to “Magento User Guide” on theis Site and search for “Blocks” and read the “Designers Guide”

Not very helpfull maybe, but there is a lot to read...and most of it is important
