I would like to remove compare product and recently viewed boxes.

For compare box I suppose is on template/catalog/products/compare/sidebar.phtml

-Just removing all the lines??? 

For the recently viewed products box It’s been harder to find.
Is it a matter of removing specific lines from:  layout/ reports.xml ??

No knowledge of php neither too much css.

Thanx a lot if you could confirm by deleting this lines on told files
we will be able to not show those two boxes

delete the following two lines

in layout/reports.xml (line 27)

<block type="reports/product_viewed" before="right.permanent.callout" name="right.reports.product.viewed" template="reports/product_viewed.phtml" />

in layout/catalog.xml (line 53)

<block type="core/template" before="cart_sidebar" name="catalog.compare.sidebar" template="catalog/product/compare/sidebar.phtml"/>

You also need to remove the relevant line from customer.xml.

Can be tested by clicking on My account (assuming logged in).

When I did this it removed the recently view products box from the homepage, but it still shows up when I click on categories.  IE:

anyone know how to remove it from this area as well?

To Disable “Recently Viewed Box” simply go on Admin Interface / Sistem/Advanced/Advanced and disable “Mage_Reports.”

That’s all.

For Compare Box still searching.

in layout/reports.xml (line 27)

<block type="reports/product_viewed" before="right.permanent.callout" name="right.reports.product.viewed" template="reports/product_viewed.phtml" />

in layout/catalog.xml (line 53)
<block type="core/template" before="cart_sidebar" name="catalog.compare.sidebar" template="catalog/product/compare/sidebar.phtml"/>

I want to remove “compare products” on the homepage ONLY, so I delete this line in the file layout/catalog.xml:

<block type="core/template" before="cart_sidebar" name="catalog.compare.sidebar" template="catalog/product/compare/sidebar.phtml"/>

The problem is when I am in the categories of products, “compare products” is also deleted !!!

Hi

Thank you for the solution to removing the compare products box.

However I still have one problem. On the products themselves when listed in a category, below the actual thumbnail/picture you have the option to “Add to Compare “ or “Add to Wishlist’.

Is there an easy way (preferably just commenting out some xml code), to remove the *Add to Compare* link?

Thank you in advance.

J.

Will disabling “Mage_Reports” affect anything other than the “Recently Viewed Products” Box?

Client does not want the compare feature on the site, anywhere. How can I disable it without hacking in case she changes her mind?
