Ok I’m still new to all this and need some help.

I am using a pre-made template monster template.

I found the page and coding to change the image on the left to the icon I want with the path, etc. Which was in my edit page> custom design.

<block type="core/template" name="left.permanent.call" before="right.newsletter" template="callouts/left_col.phtml">
<action method="setImgSrc"><src>images/media/blog.jpg</src></action>
<action method="setImgAlt" translate="alt" module="catalog"><alt>View our Blog</alt></action>
<action method="setLinkUrl"><url>http://99centtaco.blogspot.com/</url></action></block>
<action method="unsetChild"><name>left.permanent.callout</name></action>

But I want to add more icons so that it will look like this
http://i296.photobucket.com/albums/mm183/99centtaco/Untitled-1copy.jpg

I tried to mess with the coding but get no luck. If some one can post up what my coding should look like using the same above, then I can just edit the paths and icon paths, that would be great. I really need some help with this. Please.

I think you need a static block added to your left sidebar. Here is video tutorial

If you are trying to just replace or add to your top logo then go to -in your magento admin-/

system-configuration-design-header/logo_image_src

I’m not trying to mess with my logo. I don’t want to use my new icon images in categories. I want the images on the front page. Do I need to redo the whole coding for the front page? Do I need dreamweaver? I just want to have 3 icons side by side and in two rows just like in my image above. I have already inserted the first. With

<block type="core/template" name="left.permanent.call" before="right.newsletter" template="callouts/left_col.phtml">
<action method="setImgSrc"><src>images/media/blog.jpg</src></action>
<action method="setImgAlt" translate="alt" module="catalog"><alt>View our Blog</alt></action>
<action method="setLinkUrl"><url>http://99centtaco.blogspot.com/</url></action></block>
<action method="unsetChild"><name>left.permanent.callout</name></action>

how do I put another Icon beside it? and below it?
