Please note that, all template is located at  :   /<$ServerPath>/application/layouts/scripts/<$TemplatePath>/  (when $TemplatePath is whatever template you will have).

This application uses XML files to configure the layout of page. In this post, I will show you how to configure layout for a page manually. In default template, we created XML files which configure layout of all front-end pages which is located at /<$ServerPath>/application/layouts/scripts/<$TemplatePath>/config/config.xml
