You have to add two layout update in your layout.xml file

First to add your template in all pages

    <reference name="content"> // Changes you reference accordingly
         <block type="core/template" name="customtestblock" template="test/test.phtml"/>

Second to remove block from category page

    <remove name="customtestblock"/>

    <remove name="customtestblock"/>
  • There is no file called layout.xml in layout folder. Should I create it? Oct 13, 2017 at 10:22
  • it was just an example, you can add it to any existing module's layout file or in local.xml file
