I have a 3rd Party theme (Ves-Fasony) installed and I need to remove the following in Product Page:

  • Breadcrumps
  • Review
  • Add to Wish List
  • Add to Compare
  • Email

enter image description here

I removed the 「Add to Wish List」and「Review」by disabling it in Admin Panel.But I am not sure about others, I tried to remove the breadcrumps by doing the following:

  1. I created a layout folder under the following directory


  2. Then under layout folder, I created default.xml which has the following code

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
     * Copyright © 2016 Magento. All rights reserved.
     * See COPYING.txt for license details.
        <page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="page.top" remove="true" />

I am certainly wrong because it is not working. I am a newbie and I am really having a hard time understanding Magento. Please tell me where I went wrong and what should I do to remove those.


I don't think there are an "absolutely correct way" on removing the elements on pages. Even using CSS display:none to hide the elements is also a good way.

OK let's back to XML way, just make sure:

  1. On correct path. In your case, [magento_dir]/app/design/frontend/[vendor_name]/[theme_name]/Magento_Catalog/layout/catalog_product_view.xml
  2. Refer to correct block. In your case:

Remove Breadcrumbs

<referenceBlock name="breadcrumbs" remove="true" />

Remove Review

<referenceBlock name="product.info.review" remove="true" />
<referenceBlock name="reviews.tab" remove="true"/>

Remove Add to Wish List+Add to Compare+Email

Actually they're in the same container so we can remove it within a line:

<referenceContainer name="product.info.social" remove="true" />

Tested on Magento 2.1.7 EE. If you find the block/container cannot remove, most likely you have other modules/themes to override your codes. If that happens, you've to modify the block name accordingly.

  • Thank you! It worked and you explained it well. Before I was trying to remove the Email and Add to Compare by the following code '<referenceBlock name="view.addto.compare" remove="true" /> <referenceBlock name="product.info.mailto" remove="true" />' but it didn't work. Yours work well. I wonder if you can also teach me how to remove the compare button in the product list. I tried to remove it inside the <custom_module_dir>/Magento_Catalog/templates/product/listing.phtml but it didn't work too. – Dean Jul 11 '17 at 6:12
  • On [magento_dir]/app/design/frontend/[vendor_name]/[theme_name]/Magento_Catalog/layout/catalog_category_view.xml, add <referenceBlock name="compare" remove="true" /> – PY Yick Jul 11 '17 at 7:22
