Change page template via local.xml file – Magento 1

If we like to change default page templates in Magento for different pages, we can use local.xml file in our theme’s layout folder.

 <handle>
 <reference name="root">
 <action method="setTemplate"><template>page/your_page_name.phtml</template></action>
 </reference>
 </handle>

Example

 <catalog_category_default translate="label">
 <reference name="root">
 <action method="setTemplate"><template>page/1column.phtml</template></action>
 </reference>
 </catalog_category_default>

This code will make Magento default catalog category ( Non-Anchor ) page template as 1coloumn.phtml.
