I'm trying to remove the "Recently Viewed Products" from all pages using local.xml but show it only of Product View page.

I display "Recently Viewed Products" on Product View Page using:

<catalog_product_view translate="label">    
    <reference name="content">         
        <block type="reports/product_viewed" name="right.reports.product.viewed" as="recently_viewed" template="reports/product_viewed.phtml" />     

Now to hide it from all the other pages I use following code:

<reference name="right">  
    <remove name="right.reports.product.viewed" />

But than it disappears also from Product View page!

How can I achieve that Recently Viewed Product is hidden on all pages except of the Product View Page?



HomTom just change the block name name="right.reports.product.viewed" fro this code

<block type="reports/product_viewed" name="right.reports.product.viewed" as="recently_viewed" template="reports/product_viewed.phtml" /> of product page .

As two blocks have same name to it.<default> handler is working also on all frontend page

Default handler is also remove Recently Viewed Products from product page view


<catalog_product_view translate="label">    
    <reference name="content">         
        <block type="reports/product_viewed" name="right.reports.onlyproduct.viewed" as="recently_viewed" template="reports/product_viewed.phtml" />     

name="right.reports.product.viewed" change to name="right.reports.onlyproduct.viewed"

  • Your solution is great, however I had to add this in to my local.xml to get it work: <remove name="left.reports.product.viewed" /> I guess this is a Magento Bug. – HomTom Nov 7 '14 at 13:31
  • No..it is magento feature – Amit Bera Nov 7 '14 at 13:33

With CSS:

.block-viewed {display: none; }
