Magento. How to remove Orders and Returns link (starting from template 55000+)

There is an Orders and Returns link in the footer area of your Magento store that you may want to remove:

magento_remove_orders_and_returns_link_starting_from_55000_1

Let’s learn how to do that.

  1. Using your FTP/hosting control panel File Manager navigate to /app/design/frontend/tm_themes/themeXXX/layout/ directory and locate the local.xml file:

    magento_remove_orders_and_returns_link_starting_from_55000_2

  2. Open the file for editing and locate the “return_link” text using CTRL+F/CMND+F key (Windows OS/Mac OS):

    magento_remove_orders_and_returns_link_starting_from_55000_3

  3. Remove/comment out the following block of code in the file:

<reference name="footer_links">
<action method="setTitle"><title></title></action>
<block type="sales/guest_links" name="return_link"/>
<action method="addLinkBlock"><blockName>return_link</blockName></action>
<action method="addLink" translate="label title" after="return_link" module="contacts" ifconfig="contacts/contacts/enabled"><label>Contact Us</label><url>contacts</url><title>Contact Us</title><prepare>true</prepare></action>
</reference>

magento_remove_orders_and_returns_link_starting_from_55000_4

The commented out code will look as follows:

<!--<reference name="footer_links">
<action method="setTitle"><title></title></action>
<block type="sales/guest_links" name="return_link"/>
<action method="addLinkBlock"><blockName>return_link</blockName></action>
<action method="addLink" translate="label title" after="return_link" module="contacts" ifconfig="contacts/contacts/enabled"><label>Contact Us</label><url>contacts</url><title>Contact Us</title><prepare>true</prepare></action>
</reference>-->

magento_remove_orders_and_returns_link_starting_from_55000_5

Make sure to save the file to apply changes:

magento_remove_orders_and_returns_link_starting_from_55000_6

Navigate to your store front-end and refresh the page.

You can see the Orders and Returns link is no longer displayed in the footer:

magento_remove_orders_and_returns_link_starting_from_55000_7
