    Good tip Kristof. However, have you ever tried disabling the Magento Wishlist module this way?

    While it appears that the Wishlist is disabled, I encountered an error when trying to view the customer records in the admin back-end. So, I had to re-enable the wishlist module and use the Advanced Settings to just disable the output.

    Lesson is, when you disable a module completely, make sure you check both the front and back end site areas for issues.

    Bummer, eh…

      There are ways to resolve extension conflicts. Just do a google search on “resolving magento extension conflict” you should find some good pointers how to deal with this.
