I’m both happy and embarrassed to announce the release of version 1.0.1 of the Layout Unremove extension. Turns out there was a small bug that would prevent the extension from working the first time Magento built up its layout files for cache. Once the files were in cache everything would work as expected, but many of you keep caching off while building your themes and were getting bitten by hard by this. The QA team has been shipped off to prison, and a new version has been released.
As penance, I’ve recorded a new screencast with a more practical example using the
<x-unremove /> tag to re-add the left hand column to the one page checkout. The video also includes some practical layout debugging examples using Commerce Bug.
Please let me know if you run into any other bugs, or have further questions about the extension.
