Galactic Labs - Disable Compare Products

This simple module adds a new config value to the Catalog Recently Viewed/Compared Products admin section, allowing you to remove the compare products functionality.

It will remove product compare from:

  • Category view sidebar
  • Category view product list
  • Product view
  • Search results product list
  • My account sidebar

Installation

Require the module

composer require galacticlabs/disable-compare-products

Enable the module

php bin/magento module:enable GalacticLabs_DisableCompareProducts

Run setup to install module and set up table(s)

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

Usage

Once installed, you can choose to disable the compare products functionality at Stores > Settings > Configuration > Catalog > Catalog > Recently Viewed/Compared Products then choosing yes or no from the new config option Disable Compare Products.

Note: By default this option is set to no. Set it to yes and clear any caches to see the results.

How it works

Removing layout items is not trivial when doing so based on a config value. Therefore I have had to add an observer that adds a new layout handle gl_remove_compare_products to the page when the module config value is set to yes.

This will have a small performance impact, so if performance is everything then use the traditional route of adding these handles manually to your theme.

You can see the layout changes made in the view/frontend/layout/gl_remove_compare_products.xml file.

Can you also disable the wishlist?

This is a native Magento 2 feature. Just go to Stores > Settings > Configuration > Customers > Wishlist > General Options and change enabled to no.
