to view.phtml in app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/product.

my view.phtl is this

Howdy Dom,

Thanks for posting here, my email is unreal at the moment.

First point to note is do not edit ANY files in the “app/design/frontend/base/” folder, doing so will bite you in the butt later on, say during an upgrade or update to Magento, instead add these amendments to a child theme in Magento.

The above file looks like it’s the container for the page, but not actually the section you really need. Can you follow the steps in the viode below which is for a different block and I suspect you’ll want to amend a smaller template file instead.

But you won’t be able to see which one until you turn the blocks & phtml paths on.
