If I use the ‘3 column’ template option as set in the admin\cms\homepage it calls the left_col.phtml file from in catalog.xml.
If I add callouts using left_col.phtml then they appear on every page that the file is called. Can anyone suugest a way of displaying additional callouts, only on the homepage.
At the moment I having to use the ‘2 column right’ template with a custom left column entered in the ‘Content’ box (as per the original Magento demo site). Is this the best solution?
Thanks for any help and suggestions.
FYI, I have read through the design guide and feel I have a reasonable understanding of layouts in Magento. I am using v1.0 in a test environment.
