Hi,

How would you go about removing weight as a required attribute? I’ve tried creating my own attribute set, but I’m still forced to have some fields - weight being the one that sticks out to me at this particular time.

Thanks,
Chris.

Just edit the existing attribute ‘weight’ and set required to no. Thats it.

Hi,
I’ve done this but it makes no difference - weight is still showing as a required attribute in the default attribute set.

Suggestions,
Eddie

I realize this is a rather old thread but I found it through Google so I thought I\’d post my solution here: Simply go to Catalog -> Attributes -> Manage Attributes and select the \"weight\" attribute. In the multi-select below \"Apply to\”, select a product type that you don\’t need. For example I set it to \"Downloadable Product\” since I never use that in my shop. Now you won\’t be bothered with this attribute again when setting up a new product. Hope that helps!

Hi,

I tried to set Apply to on a product that I am not using but I receive the following message

The attribute code \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’weight\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’ is reserved by system. Please try another attribute code

I am not allowed to make any changes. What to do?
