I would like to put a full-width block just before my footer on my search results page (
<catalogsearch_result_index>) using my local.xml file, but I can't seem to figure out how to do it.
I have a block I made as a core/template type that is working on other pages. It is a carousel with products in it. When I add it to the search results page, it shows up on the right side, not taking up the full width because it is a 2columns-left page.
I could add the block inside the footer itself at the top (which I have also had trouble accomplishing), but this would not be ideal since the background color for the footer differs from the block.
So, do you know of any way I can accomplish what I am trying to do?
