Problem I'm having;

I'm trying to add a Left sidebar navigation but everytime I install an addon to do this it always ends up the top of the page and not the left (as in, under the menu but ABOVE the slideshow I have there). I've tried looking for a layout.xml and cannot find it in my directory anywhere. Very odd.

Thanks, Stephen

  • Did you check your catalog.xml file in layout

  • Yes, there is nothing in there regarding a side menu. It seems to be setup as a 1 or 2 column, even though I changed it in the custom xml within the admin backend.

  • ok set 1 column left and call this <reference name="left"> <block type="catalog/navigation" name="catalog.leftnav" after="currency" template="catalog/navigation/left.phtml"/> </reference>

You should use the layout 1 column left and add the code below under <catalog_category_default translate="label"> in the catalog.xml file.

 <reference name="left"> 
<block type="catalog/navigation" name="catalog.leftnav" after="currency" template="catalog/navigation/left.phtml"/>
 </reference>
