While comparing products is a great an welcomed module in Magento, for some store themes it is unnecessary. There should be an easy way of disabling this feature, such as via the disable modules output feature in the configuration menu.

YES, you’re right.
There are MANY requests for this basic feature.

And why to limit ourselves only to COMPARE ?
WISHLIST, too, and EMAILTO A FRIEND, etc.
should be easily switchable ON-FF from the back-end.

Along with the capacity to add / withdraw
to / from the homepage:
- Best Products (of the week/month, etc.),
- Newest Products (or Latest Arrivals, etc.),
- Featured Products (or Our Choice / Recommendations, etc.),
- Popular Products (or Bestsellers, etc.)…

It puzzles me a lot to see how
such common, even simple, features
(present in many other evolute carts)
are not readily available into Magento… rolleyes

They are, after all, simple database queries,
though, of course, to build the background design
to host them nicely, must not be that simple.

Who knows?
Perhaps all the above features are already b o i l i n g
in the MAGento’s secret labs
and soon (v1.2 ?) we will see them
making their appearance on our monitors tongue laugh

CIAO: A n g e l o

1.1 beta is in Magento Connect though not officially released yet - 1.1 stable is due by the end of the month.

You can already (1.0.9870.4 - the latest version of 1.0) turn the wishlist and email to a friend on and off correctly in the configuration.

Wishlist:

System > Configuration > Customers > Wishlist > General Options

Change Enabled to No

Email to a Friend:

System > Configuration > Catalog > Email to a Friend > Email templates

Change Enabled to No

And what if you want to keep the wishlist on but email to a friend off?

First, a wishlist can still be usefull without the mailing feature.

And second, some countries like mine, Spain cool smile, have very restrictive antispam laws and we must disable “email to a friend” until a similar system to “newsletter subscription” acceptance is available.

Nowadays if we want to keep our wishlists on we’re modifying our themes to remove the “share” button, but mailing is still accesible from the URI /index.php/wishlist/index/share/, not a nice solution. confused

Simply turn off email to a friend, but leave wishlist on.  They are two separate options.
