Using the Layout Editor

Overview

Watch the video tutorial! The Layout Editor lets you control the display of any standard, built-in block in the left and right columns of your store. You can add, rearrange, lock in place, and remove blocks from view. The Layout Editor cannot be used on single-column pages, and is disabled for the Customer Account Dashboard. To apply block layout changes to the Customer Dashboard, see: “Creating a Frontend App,” in the Magento Go Design Guide.

  1. From the Admin panel, select Design > Layout Editor.
