Okay, this is my first experience with Magento so everything is very new to me. I was hoping someone would have a quick “Duh!” solution for me. I know I must have missed something, but when I try to make changes to my catalog.xml file, nothing happens. Even if I completely delete the file, nothing changes on my storefront. Any ideas?
Could this have anything to do with the “Manage Stores” part of the backend? I don’t think I really understood that all correctly. I renamed all three values to the names of my store (see attached image). I also am including a screenshot of my configuration page. The website and store beneath “Default Config” are all marked (with the checkbox) to use the “default”.
I’m having similar problems. I’ve been trying to get a grasp on the way layouts work so I can really changeup the site design, and I’ve been trying to a simple change… moving the shopping cart box from the right to the left nav in the default template. It doesn’t seem to do squat. I can’t even get it to disappear. If I figure anything out, I’ll post… FYI: I’m working in the “Default Config” and “Main Website” areas only, so the changes should cascade to all stores (at least that’s my understanding...?)
