Hi mate,

To remove that compare block on the right side you can open the file of app\design\frontend\default\your_theme\layout\cata log.xml there you look for this tag and remove

HTML Code:

    <block type="catalog/product_compare_sidebar" after="catalog.leftnav" name="" template="catalog/product/compare/sidebar.phtml"/>

Hope that helps !

Hi, Sherlock,

Thank you for your reply. I am realizing now however that these blocks, apart from the first one (Win a Price) that I need to eliminate, are actually useful. The problem is that they should be displayed as a sidebar on the right, but they appear under the Dashboard etc. Do you know why this is happening please?
See My Wishlist for example: Attachment 28712

Hi susan,

I guess it’s kind of missing html tags (close or open), you can check again those static bock’s contents there, make sure that those static bocks at that page does not contain messed content.
Hope you will find it out.
