Switch blocks on home page?

Hello,

 

I need a little help Smiley Happy

 

On my homepage I have a block of text and the "New products" block, and I want to switch the positions of these two blocks, so that the "New products" block is before the text.

 

I have tried to explain in this picture:

How can I do that?

 

Thanks in advance Smiley Happy

 

Best regards,

Brian

Re: Switch blocks on home page?

Hello,

 

I cannot access your attached image!

There are two points I suggest for you:

+You find the xml layout template of new product block: CMS > Pages > choose Home page > choose tab Design > you will see template of  "New Products" block.

+You can find this template under base package: app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product/new.phtml

Hello MrKoa99,

 

I have uploaded the screenshot to imgur instead, can you see it here:

I have looked in those places, but I don't know what to change to move the "New products" before the text block.

Re: Switch blocks on home page?

Hello,

 

You go to CMS > Pages > choose Home page > choose tab Design. You can post the xml layout in Design section here?

Re: Switch blocks on home page?

Yes, here it is:

<reference name="head">
            <action method="addItem" ifconfig="sales/msrp/enabled"><type>skin_js</type><name>js/msrp.js</name></action>
</reference>
<reference name="content">
	<block type="catalog/product_new" name="home.catalog.product.new" alias="product_new" template="catalog/product/new.phtml">
		<action method="setColumnCount"><columns>4</columns></action>
		<action method="setProductsCount"><count>30</count></action>
		<action method="addPriceBlockType"><type>bundle</type><block>bundle/catalog_product_price</block><template>bundle/catalog/product/price.phtml</template></action>
	</block>
	<block type="core/template" template="catalog/msrp/popup.phtml" name="product.tooltip"></block>
</reference>

Hello,

 

You also post the Content tab here?

 

You know how to enable Template Path Hint in Magento?This block may be occupied on templates file.

Re: Switch blocks on home page?

Yes, the Content section is where the text is inserted.

 

I doesn't understand the last part of your reply - "This block may be occupied on templates file"

Re: Switch blocks on home page?

I finally figured it out.

 

I added the following code before the text in CMS -> Pages -> home -> Content

 

{{block type="catalog/product_new" column_count="4" products_count="40" name="home.catalog.product.new" alias="product_new" template="catalog/product/new.phtml"}}

Then there was two "New products" block - one before the text (the one I just inserted), and one after, which I removed from CMS -> Pages -> home -> Design

 

Thanks for all the help Smiley Happy
