I want to move the upsells block to the (left) sidebar on the product page. The content of the left-sidebar is a static block containing HTML.

enter image description here

Edited the catalog.xml already(Product view section)

<catalog_product_view translate="label">

<catalog_product_view>   
<refrence name="left">
  <block type="catalog/product_list_upsell" name="product.info.upsell" as="upsell_products" template="catalog/product/list/upsell.phtml">

                <action method="setItemLimit"><type>upsell</type><limit>4</limit></action>
            </block>
 </refrence>
</catalog_product_view>   

for hack way go to this path and write this code app\design\frontend\yourPackage\yourTheme\template\catalog\navigation\left.phtml.

and add below line

if(Mage::registry('current_product'))
{
  echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('catalog/product_list_upsell')->setTemplate('catalog/product/list/upsell.phtml')->toHtml();
 }

add this code in your local.xml file or any custom module layout file this will show in your product page only

  • Doesn't work, when i paste only the block inside <catalog_product_view> without the <refrence name="left"> it shows on the product view tho. – Pieter Sep 1 '16 at 9:51
  • have you try with <refrence name="left"> becuse I think you miss refrence name only – Murtuza Zabuawala Sep 1 '16 at 9:54
  • Yes, i copied your code with the <refrence name="left"> – Pieter Sep 1 '16 at 9:59
  • Some where has code to remove upsell from left find in your xml files – Murtuza Zabuawala Sep 1 '16 at 10:04
  • Please see my edit – Pieter Sep 1 '16 at 10:27
