I added below line in CMS Home Page to display products of a certain category in Magento 1.

{{block type="catalog/product_list" column_count="4" category_id="179" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}

Now I can see the products of that category. But I also got a tool-bar as a phtml file (I got this using Template Path Hints). Now I would like to know how can I find which XML file include this phtml file ? I would like to remove that inclusion of phtml file from XML file.

  • A quick tip: If you search for the template path and name you should find the XML file(s) that render this block. You can then manipulate it in your theme.

1 Answer 1

  1. Go to your theme and locate app/design/frontend/ [ your interface name] / [your theme name] /template/catalog/product/list.phtml

  2. Take a copy of this and rename list.phtml to homepage-list.phtml.

  3. Remove this code <?php echo $this->getToolbarHtml() ?> from around line 39 and 131 and save.

  4. Update your CMS home page to this {{block type="catalog/product_list" column_count="4" category_id="179" template="catalog/product/homepage-list.phtml"}}

  5. Refresh your page.

  • Thanks @krishna ijjada for your reply. Yes, you are right. But my intension is little different. How did this toolbar display here ? I think this toolbar is included through a XML file, because when I on the Template Path Hint I got a hint of .phtml file. (Am I right or wrong). I would like to remove that inclusion from that XML file. Thanks

  • Yeah, you are right, toolbar is adding from catalog.xml, you can remove it by removing toolbar.phtml in the catalog.xml but it will effect product catalog. Nov 28, 2016 at 14:44
  • Thanks @krishna ijjada for your wise reply. I removed toolbar.phtml from catalog.xml of current theme and base theme. I also removed toolbar.phtml from catalogsearch.xml of current theme and base theme. But it is still displaying. [1]: i.stack.imgur.com/uu2UJ.png

  • I searched toolbar.phtml in catalog.xml and catalogsearch.xml and removed toolbar.phtml from multiple places of those files before your comment. Cache is disabled. But the toolbar is still displaying. The site is using theme254k. This Theme is behaving uneven behavior from beginning. What to do? Thanks.
