Hello,

I haved search on the internet but I do not succeed to remove the “Additional Information” and the “extra description” on the product page.
In the “Additional Information” tab is only the “weight” visible. I tryed to disable the weight in: Admin-->catalog ---> attributes ---> manage attributes. But when I try to edit just something from the attribute it gives the error:

“The attribute code ‘weight’ is reserved by system. Please try another attribute code”

So how do I remove the “Additional Information” and “description” below every product page?

I hope someone could help me out.

Hi Dean88,

If you want to remove Additional Information just open your template/catalog/product/view.phtml and comment the following code:

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('product_additional_data') ?>

to remove description just open:
template/catalog/product/view/description.phtml
and comment everthing on the page.

Sorry for late reply. Try to remove ‘Additiona Information’ byy commenting out everything on template/catalog/product/view/attributes.phtml and see the changes.
