Dear ilkeryalcin,

You will create new page at backend -> CMS -> Pages , example page name is "other service" and URL Key is "other_service" . After that, you will create new static block at backend -> CMS -> Static Blocks, example Block Title is "Your Navigation", Identifier is "your_navigation" and Content as follow:


<div class="block block-layered-nav">
    <div class="block-title">
        <strong><span>Your Navigation</span></strong>
    <div class="block-content">
	      <li><a href="{{store direct_url="other_service"}}">Other Service</a></li>

After that, edit lines 99 in file app\design\frontend\default\jm_fabian\layout\page. xml as follow:


	<!--Display category on left-->
        <reference name="left">
            <block type="catalog/navigation" name="catalog.leftcat" template="catalog/navigation/sidenav.phtml"/>
            <block type="cms/block" name="your_navigation">
                <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>your_navigation</block_id></action>
            <block type="core/template" name="left.permanent.callout" template="callouts/left_col.phtml"/>

Please comment if you have other problems.
