I'm trying to change the template used by fishpig to use a custom wp-2columns-left.phtml template.
I've tried updating my theme's local.xml file with:
<wordpress_default> <reference name="root"> <action method="setTemplate"><template>page/wp-2columns-left.phtml</template></action> </reference> </wordpress_default>
I've also tried amending the wordpress.xml to use the same template but it doesn't work either.
I thought that maybe the wordpress_default layout handle was incorrect but I tested it by removing some js from the head and found it worked.
<wordpress_default> <reference name="head"> <action method="removeItem"><type>js</type><script>fishpig/wordpress/search.js</script></action> </reference> </wordpress_default>
Am I missing something? Could something else be overwriting this layout xml? In my theme only wordpress.xml & local.xml are using the wordpress_default handle.
I'm using the ultimo magento theme and the cache is disabled.
