I want to replace the product_list block for a certain category with a custom template (list_custom.phtml).
To do this, I thought I could use the following XML in the Custom Layout Update of my target category:
I reindex category_flat_data (and caching is disabled) but nothing happens. Other update code such as <remove name="product_list" /> works fine, but the product_list template just won’t update.
The product list block is specified in catalog.xml and when I edit it there the changes are reflected on every category on the site. However, editing catalog.xml is not an option as I only want the custom template to be used on a few specific categories.
I’ve posted on StackOverflow about this issue too.
What am I doing wrong?
