Hi,

Do you want to change only the home page from 2 column to 3 column or every page of site like category , products etc ? To change the layout of category and product page you can change it in the catalog.xml of your theme add this code :

<reference name="root">
<action method="setTemplate"><template>page/3columns.phtml</template></action>
</reference>

in category and product view.

Thanks
Pulkit

Hello,

You can change the home page layout from -
admin > cms pages > home page > design > under layout drop down you can change the layout of your home page from 2 column right to 3 column.

Hope this will help you.
