Do you want to remove the add to compare list in your Magento site?
There is only bad news to do that.
First of all there is no an easy-admin-button to turn it off. Yeah Magento rocks…
And of course you will have to to into some code. But don’t worry is quite simple.
0. Turn cache Off
Turn off the Magento Cache just to be sure the changes work. You can turn it on again once you’re done.
Reminder: System-> Cache Management
Open the app/design/frontend/deafult/YourTheme/layout/reports.xml
Look for and comment or delete this line:
<block type=”reports/product_compared” before=”right.permanent.callout” name=”right.reports.product.compared” template=”reports/product_compared.phtml” />
And also this one:
<block type=”reports/product_viewed” before=”right.permanent.callout” name=”right.reports.product.viewed” template=”reports/product_viewed.phtml” />
