Cam, maybe you or someone else can enlighten me as to how to force the front page of my 7.0 cart's front page to swap the main body box to the far left and put the mini cart, categories, blog, featured product and so forth on the far right.

The online FAQ's don't seem to cover this and the manual doesn't discuss it... or if it did I have missed it.

My SEO articles are appearing on the right side and I want them on the left. My thought is I need to change the global template in some way to force this for the SEO articles, but if someone has a different thought please let me know what it might be.

Straight easy one.

You can follow my mine :

- Open file shoppage_header.htm

- You will have to locate the code :

<div id="vp_leftsidebox"><%leftsidebox%></div>
<div id="main">

- And replace with :

<div id="vp_leftsidebox"><div id="main">

- Then insert this code to shoppage_trailer.htm (very beginning of file) :


I hope this will help,

This didn't work for me, but it got me on the right track.

Here's what I did to get it to work:
1. Copy & rename the default-3cols template, as this is the one with correct css for the right column.
2. Open shoppage_header.htm and delete the lines:
<!-- side bar -->
<div id="vp_leftsidebox"><%leftsidebox%></div>
3. Edit layout.css
3.1 change #wrap width to 780px
3.2 change #main margin to margin:3px 0 0 8px;
4. Apply new template
