I am using Magento 1.7.
app/design/frontend/default/custom_theme/template/page, which is the page template I'm using, I find the following code:
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('content') ?>
which is responsible for adding the content to my page.
However, I would like to add some more content to my page, so that it is displayed when this line of code is executed. But I don't know how I should proceed. I read about the layout and blocks system, but still I am not able to add some content to my page.
I know that I can add content to
design/frontend/default/custom_theme/template/page which is then displayed in the frontend. However, in the case of what is inserted by
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('content') ?>, I don't know how to proceed. Could anyone explain me which steps I need to follow in order to add some additional content?
I am pretty new to Magento, so if you think there is some lack of info in my question, please tell me and I will provide it.
