In the HelloMix install there are updates to add the custom layout called “homepage.phtml” but the instructions appear to use the “1 Column” layout for the CMS home page. Is the addition of the custom layout a mistake and doesn’t need to be installed? Maybe it is used by other themes?
In the download .zip there is a config.xml and system.xml that add the custom layout. As you said I don’t think it is used so I just wanted to confirm so I can remove those overrides in my installation.
Thanks for posting this, but how about with Mage_Local.xml file in appetcmodules ? how do you replace this file?. If you want you can explain better your procedure, could be very helpfull to others.
