I can’t seem to understand how to manipulate this column whatsoever. It’s not in CMS | Blocks and it’s really annoying. Can someone PLEASE point me in the right direction regarding this?

To reiterate, I need to know EXACTLY WHERE TO EDIT THE COLUMNS. Is is edited via FTP?

Thanks.

Well I suppose either no one knows how to modify blocks(?) in a column or I may have not worded the question correctly.

In http://demo.magentocommerce.com/, there is a photo of dog that goes to the checkout basket in the right column. (http://demo.magentocommerce.com/skin/frontend/default/default/images/media/col_left_callout.jpg)

How can I change the location of the link of this image?
How can I change the placement of the image? (e.g. further down the column or on the left column instead.)

Thanks.

Thanks Ajazza! I would have never guessed where to find that file.

I was also trying to manipulate the image above it, which wasn’t found in right_col.phtml.

Again, on the right hand side of the demo (http://demo.magentocommerce.com/) is the following image:
http://demo.magentocommerce.com/skin/frontend/default/default/images/media/col_left_callout.jpg

I tried the following places but wasn’t so lucky:
- /app/design/frontend/default/default/template/callouts/left_col.phtml
- /app/design/frontend/default/default/template/checkout/cart/sidebar.phtml

Any ideas on that one? Also, is there a definitive place that describes where to find what?

Thanks.

Did you switch the template helper thingy on, so that all the paths are in red blocks?  That would help you massively.

No I have not. Where is the template helper located? I am going to hunt for it, but I probably won’t find it. lol
