In Magento, on product page "Related Products" appear just under the products description. I want to move this block to Right Column.

Please advise how to do this?

Two steps:

  1. At app/design/frontend/rwd/default/layout/catalog.xml. Move following code:


    <reference name="right">


and make it looks like below:

    <reference name="right">
            <block type="catalog/product_list_related" name="catalog.product.related" as="related_products" template="catalog/product/list/related.phtml" />
  1. At the page app/design/frontend/rwd/default/template/catalog/product/view.phtml, remove following:

        <?php echo $this->getChildHtml('related_products') ?>
  • it works for me , My code as like <reference name="left"> <block type="catalog/product_list_related" name="catalog.product.related" after="treemenu" template="catalog/product/list/related_owl.phtml"/> </reference>

I'm pretty sure that you're mixing up related products and up-sells. Up-sells are usually underneath product descriptions, related products are usually on sidebars and cross-sells can be found from checkouts.
