I have small problem with Magento. I'm not Magento guru but i'm trying to figure out this error.
And this 1column page won't be 1 column, it always two-column. Where can i check it?
I set in admin to this page custom layout - 1 column and for all others - use parent settings, on root category i set 2 column with left pad - no luck.
Inside theme/package/layout/local.xml the template for catalog pages was set to:
For this one page the settings on admin was set to: Page Layout: 1 column.
These settings are not stable. In case the page is reloaded several times in a row, sometimes, I see, that the template for this page is "2-columns-left.phtml", sometimes - it is correct and is "1column.phtml"
Please i'll be glad for any help.
You can put into your theme's local.xml the following:
<catalog_category_default> <reference name="root"> <action method="setTemplate"> <template>page/1column.phtml</template> </action> </reference> </catalog_category_default>
The important thing beeing the handle <catalog_category_default>.
Also remove all custom layouts you have set in admin.
Edit: In your post there is missing <template> </template> tag and also the closing </action> and handle, but I figured that was a typo.
Hope it helps,
Sorry for missing tags - it's mistake, yes, just forgot to copy-paste.
If i add this into local.xml - what happens to other pages? I need 1-column layout only in one category. All others should be 2-column.
Thank you very much for your answer.
This will set 1colummn.phtml template to all category pages, but you should be able to change layout for single category in admin. I just tested this on my local magento and it's working.
If the problem persists I'm afraid that without more information on your magento install I can't help you further.
Edit: In your case you should put 2columns-left.phtml (or right) as your default template. Also be sure to check the spelling
Yes, i put same config in my local.xml (expect i set 2columns-left.phtml) and set custom layout "1 column" in Admin for single category. And i've got same problem - sometimes page loads 1 column, but sometimes it has 2columns layout! I'm just reloading it multiple times with browser cache clearing and getting unstable results.
If i can provide you more information - just ask.
Thanks a lot!
What magento version are you using? And which template?
You can also try with the
handle instead of the <catalog_category_default>, see if that works.
OK. If i set <catalog_category_layered translate="label"> in local.xml and in Admin in categories in Custom Layout i set "No layout updates" - my single category page always 2-column (as i select in local.xml).
I also tried to add:
It seems not working.
