I want to make certain changes to home page-
Put custom html blocks on the right column.
Remove compare items and mini shopping cart from home page, but they should come up on the right side of other pages.
What layout and template files would I need to modify?
I know it is CMS page, and the html is stored in the database.

Hi Bill,

I want to see the CSS of the home page.
Where can I find this?

I want to change the width of the columns in the layout.

Also what do I do if I want to remove the compare items widget from home page only, and not the other pages:

It should come on the right column of product page but not home page.

Thanks Ohminu,

Actually I want to understand how the homepage layout is controlled.
For the three column layout I want to change the positioning of the left,middle and right columns, change the width of each column, change the margins and padding etc.

Where can I change these?
Is it all there in boxes.css?

Regards,
Aditya

Also im trying to find out what controls the hyperlinks:

I have made a left-nav menu and the links have a default colour and are underlined.
I want to change the link colour and remove the underline but am unable to find the CSS.
