I have just installed the Magento Bootstrap theme webcomm/magento-boilerplate
By default, Mangeto loads the 2column-right.phtml as the skeleton layout template. How do I ask it to load another template, say 2column-left.phtml, as the default template? I tried to added following XML to local.xml in the theme package but no avail:
<default> <reference name="root"> <action method="setTemplate"><template>page/2columns-left.phtml</template></action> </reference> </default>
So how to do it? I know that I can specifically target a product or category page to be rendered in certain skeleton template but what I want is to apply this layout by default, especially for home page, either by editing the XML files or doing it in the backend admin panel?
