Adding new page layout for Magento CMS pages

Magento offers advanced e-commerce functionality, but we should not disregard classic CMS pages which fulfill your website with additional content. Commonly those pages are very rarely with content that has identical structure, so we need to create new template for them.

To make a new template, first we need to create phtml file with your template and save it in
Then open local.xml (app/etc/local.xml). Somewhere on 55th line of code, right below
insert following code:

<label>Title that will be shown in drop down menu in Admin panel</label>

* Code must be inside <global></global> tag

Example local.xml



Result: CMS page in Admin panel with new layout.
