Is there anyway we can remove the description tab from the product details, and show the additional information instead?
Since we’re a computer shop, a short description and the additional information are enough information and more organized and detailed than trying to come up with some original description.
In your layout directory of your theme edit the catalog.xml file.
you are looking for the <catalog_product_view>
comment out the following line:-
<action method="addTab" translate="title" module="catalog"><alias>description</alias><title>Detailed Description</title><block>catalog/product_view_description</block><template>catalog/product/view/description.phtml</template></action>
you can also change the order of the tabs by moving them in this file.
