I want to add some other blogs in pages using 2 columns with right bar in pages. For example, I have added code like remove wishlist and I have added my custom block in that Layout Handle in the backend. But it's not working. Please tell me how to fix this.

Layout handle in pages screnshot: https://prnt.sc/i4reka

<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="1column" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../../../../../../lib/internal/Magento/Framework/View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="catalog.compare.sidebar" remove="true"/>
        <referenceBlock name="wishlist_sidebar" remove="true"/>
        <referenceContainer name="sidebar.additional">
            <block class="Custom\Blog\Block\Sidebar" name="blog.sidebar" template="Custom_Blog::sidebar.phtml" after="-"/>

*Magento 2 only support updates of referenceContainer, container, update, move layout tags from admin**.

So, from Layout Update XML section, cannot remove a block

<referenceBlock name="{Blockname}" remove="true"/>

So, how to remove a block from Layout Update XML

An Idea ,we do trick, by which we you remove a block from layout

1. First create new container for layout

<container name="removeusedlayout.page" as="removeunsedlayout" label="Remove used use container" htmlTag="div" htmlClass="removeunsedlayout-container" />

2.Move all blocks (which you want remove from layout) to this container to this referenceContainer removeusedlayout.page

<move element="wishlist_sidebar" destination="removeusedlayout.page"/>
  1. Then remove container removeusedlayout.page from layout using below code:
<referenceContainer name="removeusedlayout.pager" remove="true"/>

enter image description here

Output enter image description here

  • There is a typo error (pager instead of page) in your last referenceContainer, isn't there ? Feb 19, 2020 at 16:16
