I am using a separate template file only for one category For that i have set up a separate page layout everything is working fine

content from my page.xml

<page_product_view_brand translate="label">
        <label>Product View (left)</label>
        <reference name="root">
            <action method="setTemplate"><template>page/product_view_brand.phtml</template></action>
            <!-- Mark root page block that template is applied -->
            <action method="setIsHandle"><applied>1</applied></action>


        </reference>
        <reference name="head">
            <action method="removeItem"><type>skin_css</type><name>css/screen.css</name></action>
        </reference>
    </page_product_view_brand>

This page is uses totally different css files. So i want to remove all the css that is loading other than my required ones.

But i am not able to remove the css from my document.What am i doing wrong

EDIT: Two places in page.xml

<block type="page/html_head" name="head" as="head">
 <action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/screen.css</stylesheet></action>
</block>
.....................
<block type="page/html_customhead" name="customhead" as="customhead">
 <action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/screen.css</stylesheet></action>
</block>

You're best of adding any changes to the local.xml to ensure the new rules are processed last.

[...]
<page_product_view_brand>
   <reference name="head">
      <action method="removeItem"><type>skin_css</type><name>css/screen.css</name></action>
   </reference>
   <reference name="customhead">
      <action method="removeItem"><type>skin_css</type><name>css/screen.css</name></action>
   </reference>
</page_product_view_brand>
[...]

Should do the trick

  • tried this. but no luck <reference name should be header or head – zamil Nov 27 '13 at 13:38
  • Its still present in the document :( – zamil Nov 27 '13 at 13:53
  • yes. its remoivng when i changed the <page_product_view_brand> to <default> but how to remove it only for that template – zamil Nov 27 '13 at 13:58
  • Im not sure what customhead does but I've updated my answer. please try that – Sander Mangel Nov 27 '13 at 15:50

Be sure to put your updates etc inside the <default></default> handle.

You could create simple module and specify a layout update handle for the specific template:

<layout>
    <updates>
        <customtemplate>
            <file>modulename/customtemplate.xml</file>
        </customtemplate>
    </updates>
</layout>

Then in the customtemplate.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout>
  <reference name="head">
    <!-- Remove default assets -->
    <action method="removeItem">
    <type>skin_css</type>
    <name>css/whatever.css</name>
    </action>
  </reference>
</layout>

Might seem a bit long winded but should yield the results you want...

  • This is not what i want.If i put in <default> it will remove.I want to remove only for one template – zamil Nov 28 '13 at 5:21
