How to safely disable the callouts on the left and right columns


I have a JM Anion (magento 1.6) template installed on my localhost. I want to disable/remove safely the left and right callout images/links/blocks. I found a way to do it by going to


and comment the line <!--<block type="core/template" name="right.permanent.callout" template="callouts/right_col.phtml"/>-->.

Both callouts, on the left and on the right side, disappear. That will be wonderful if they were the only things that disappeared, but I realized that also the MAIN MENU disappears when I comment that line.

Is there any way to do it safely without losing the main menu?.

You can easily rename 2 files (to whatever you want) that this block call to by going to dir: \app\design\frontend\base\defaulttemplate\callout s (left_col.phtml and right_col.phtml).
