I am using magento 184.108.40.206 and would like to disable categories on left sidebar. I do not have an XML-file in template path, I searched on internet and see, that is to fix with XML.
What are the solutions?
In your local.xml you can do the following;
You may or may not have one in app/design/frontend/<package>/<theme>/layout/
There are several ways you can do it though. You could copy the catalog.xml file from base in to your theme and make the changes in there but i do not like that method.
Using local.xml or a custom layout file is always best for upgradeability.
