The ‘Design Guide’ is well worth a read (you’ll find it in the Resources menu at the top of this page).

There are a couple of exercises at the end of it that are to help get you up and running, one of them is moving the mini_cart block from one column to another.... that should get you started.

Regards,

Gordon

I’m having the same issue, i want to edit the left and right columns but the design document doesn’t really help :( it’s geekesque.

Is there an easy “how to?” somewhere ?  or plans to have a little CMS for editing those left and right columns. ( as easy as joomla in a way )
Not being able to edit such things is going to scare many persons and get them away from magento i think…
