Hi,

I try this wonderfull peace of software and I now try to build my own site.
I need to manage at least 2 differents languages. I manage to do (almost) I want, but the “Description” attribute is common to all the store and we can’t change it form the admin console.

Is is anyway to have one description store ?
It seems it is possible because I’ve read it but, I really don’t know how to do that if the “Description” is common.

Thank a lot for your help
Brian

Yes it is a global and system attribute, but it is the default configuration (just after a fresh installation) and I did not manage to change it.
I also try to create another attribute (not a global one) and change the default attributes set to include it, but, we can not delete the “description” attribute of the default attributes set (probably because it is a system attribute).
Can we just change directly into the database ?

Thanks and happy christmas
Brian

Hi, you can run this statement on your Magento database:

update `eav_attributeset `is_global`=0 where `attribute_code`='description' and `entity_type_idin (select `entity_type_idfrom `eav_entity_typewhere `entity_type_codelike 'catalog_%');
This will update “Global” flag for “Description” attribute for both products and categories.
