Learning Magento – Creating a Different Header on the Home Page

Learning to use Magento have a steep curve (and I really hate walking up hill) but I’ll get there.

To add an image to your home page only…

  1. Upload the image
  2. Create a static block that contains the html link to the image
  3. Duplicate app/design/…/template/page/html/header.phtml
  4. In Magento admin edit the Home Page (CMS > Manage Pages > Custom Pages)
  5. Update the Layout Update XML field as per http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/52733/

Now I just need to work a way to update the image within the admin system…
