Problem in Adding Custom Blocks in right sidebar in rwd custom theme

Problem in Adding Custom Blocks in right sidebar in rwd custom theme

Hi there,

I've customized a theme based on rwd theme in magento 1.9.4 cuz I wanted my new theme to be respnsive and surely rwd theme is!

What I understand is that in rwd theme, content and col-left sidebar is in wrapper tag, and col-right sidebar is in another tag (outside wrapper).

When I add cms block or content block to col-left ( using <reference name="left"> in my local.xml), in  home page and other pages my customs block is inside col-left (that should be. no problem so far).

When I add same block to col-right ( using <reference name="right"> in my local.xml), in home page the block is in col-right column (no problem), but it is not in col-right column in other pages! (the block jumped out of col-right, so it covers all the width of page!)

how can I add block to pages other than Home page to right-col ,and locate it inside right column properly

thanks

Put Your Block in local.xml in default handler. Please Check at your block, if all div tag are close or not.

<default>
	<reference name="left">
    	<block name="mtb.template.left" type="core/template" template="page/mtb/mytemplate.phtml" />
	</reference>
	<reference name="right">
    	<block name="mtb.template.right" type="core/template" template="page/mtb/mytemplate.phtml" />
	</reference>
</default>
