Is there a way to disable the compare function in admin panel?

  • Can you add more information, what you exactly want? – Sohel Rana Jul 27 '16 at 13:35
  • I want to remove the compare list in the navigation bar and also the "add to compare list" button in the product grid. Is there any suggestion? – Paul Jul 27 '16 at 16:21

As of 2.1 theres no way to disable the compare functionality in the Backend.

The only thing you can do is via the theme:

In your Magento_Catalog/layout/default.xml of your theme you need the following code to remove the sidebar:

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="catalog.compare.sidebar" remove="true"/>

On top of that you need Magento_Catalog/layout/catalog_product_view.xml with the following code to remove the link on the product page:

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="view.addto.compare" remove="true" />

Then to remove the compare link from the product list you need to edit Magento_Catalog/templates/product/list.phtml and remove/comment the compare lines.
