Originally, I had the newsletter block in the footer, this is code:

<div>{{block type="newsletter/subscribe" name="left.newsletter" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"}}</div>

I then pasted the above code into the left column instead. After this, I deleted it from the footer but, it is still persisting in footer for some reason.

How do I remove the newsletter block from the footer, since deleting it didn't seem to remove it? Any help would be appreciated.

In app/design/frontend/theme/theme/layout/newsletter.xml change from:

<reference name="footer">
    <block type="newsletter/subscribe" name="footer.newsletter" as="newsletter" before="footer_store_language" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"/>


<reference name="left">
    <block type="newsletter/subscribe" name="left.newsletter" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml" before="-" />

Most probably this will be cache issue. Magento will cache footer section. So removing entire cache would solve this problem

Remove entire cache my removing entires inside var/cache


Try it through admin System > Cache Management > Flush Cache Storage


You can do this by direct php call.Create block programmatically of type newsletter/subscribe and set it template

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('newsletter/subscribe')->setTemplate('newsletter/subscribe.phtml')->toHtml(); ?>

Call to app\design\frontend\default\yourTheme\layout\page.xml

<block type="newsletter/subscribe" name="newsletter" as="newsletter" template="newsletter/subscribe.phtml"/>

Call to Footer.phtml

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('newsletter'); ?>
