Create New Default Layout?

In the admin there are three main layouts to choose from, and in the templates layouts folder, there are three files there. I am assuming that is them. Can we add more? If I had a specific layout or two, can I create additional layouts to be available in the dropdown menu choice from admin section?

yes you can add as many you need ,

watch the switch

line 143 yjsgcore/yjsg_stylesw.php

$mylayouts = array(
1, 2, 3

you add own name it layout4.php

and add new array case

$mylayouts = array(
1, 2, 3, 4

than in templatedetails.xml

after line 546

<option value="3">Leftblock-Rightblock-Midblock</option>


<option value="4">Youroption name </option>
front end switch would be


I suggest you start with blank layout4.php until your switch works , than style it

Follow up question. So I created a new one named layout4.php and copied the layout3.php code. I renamed the main holder div to holder4 and deleted everything else inside that div to see what it would produce. It looks like there is a lot of "upper" and "lower" pieces that remain... where are those produced from? I would like to incorporate a couple varied layouts including those parts moving and removing as well.

Ah thanks man, I will poke into there as well. Is it possible to have a few variants of the grid layouts that will alter with main page layout? Does that make sense?
