Disable regions from displaying from right column

Open up the file includes/column_right.php:

Then search for this section:

  if (substr(basename($PHP_SELF), 0, 8) != 'checkout') {
    include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'languages.php');
    include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'currencies.php');
  }

Then comment out the languages.php line like so:

  if (substr(basename($PHP_SELF), 0, 8) != 'checkout') {
    //include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'languages.php');
    include(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'currencies.php');
  }

You can do this for any region in the left or right columns. For example, the Reviews section is located on this line:

require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'reviews.php');

It’s pretty easy to identify the regions or sections. The left column section if found in the file includes/left_column.php.
