PowerStore3 Left Column Category Special Adds

In PowerStore 3 I want to add items in the sidebar, such as images, extra text and links, etc. Where do I alter the PHP to add such items?

You need to edit the Templates/main.dwt.php file, add your aditional content in the leftColumn1 div

<div id="leftColumn1">

if (!function_exists("getCatAccordian")) {
getCatAccordian($StartWith=0,$prevLevels=0)  {
$retHTML "";
$retScript "";
mysql_select_db($GLOBALS['database_PowerStoreConnection'], $GLOBALS['PowerStoreConnection']);
$query_SubCategoryList "SELECT * FROM ps3_categories WHERE CategoryParent = ".$StartWith " ORDER BY CategoryName";
$SubCategoryList mysql_query($query_SubCategoryList$GLOBALS['PowerStoreConnection']) or die(mysql_error());
$totalRows_SubCategoryList mysql_num_rows($SubCategoryList);
$row_SubCategoryList mysql_fetch_assoc($SubCategoryList);
$spaceStr '&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;';
  if (
$row_SubCategoryList)  {
$retHTML .= '<div id="Accordion'.$row_SubCategoryList["CategoryID"].'" class="Accordion" tabindex="0">' "\n";
$retScript .= 'var Accordion'.$row_SubCategoryList["CategoryID"].' = new Spry.Widget.Accordion("Accordion'.$row_SubCategoryList["CategoryID"].'", { useFixedPanelHeights: false, defaultPanel: -1 });' "\n";
  while (
$row_SubCategoryList)  {
$suboptions getCatAccordian($row_SubCategoryList["CategoryID"],($prevLevels));
$retScript .= $suboptions[1];
$retHTML .= '  <div class="AccordionPanel" >' "\n";
$retHTML .= '   <div class="AccordionPanelTab" onclick="doHighlighlight(this);updateContant(\'Products_Results.php?Search=1&ProductCategoryID[]='.$row_SubCategoryList["CategoryID"].'\')">'.(($prevLevels>0)?substr($spaceStr,0,12*$prevLevels):'') .$row_SubCategoryList["CategoryName"].'</div>' "\n";
      if (
$suboptions[0]!="")  {
$retHTML .= '    <div class="AccordionPanelContent" >' "\n";
$retHTML .=        $suboptions[0];
$retHTML .= '    </div>' "\n";
$retHTML .= '  </div>' "\n";
$row_SubCategoryList mysql_fetch_assoc($SubCategoryList);
