Hiding default attributes

When I try to create a Product, Magelia Webstore asks for several default attributes : WeightWidthHeight, Length... That could be fine if my products were not virtual ones (applications). Is there a way to hide these attributes for a whole store or just one Product Type ?

Hi Boris, 

Thank you for your feedback. When you create a product, the product type and sku are the only two mandatory fields in a default Magelia WebStore configuration. We did our best to limit the number of mandatory attributes.

Other attributes such as WeightWidthHeight, Length are optional attributes that are  always visible and there is no way in the current version, nor probably in the next releass to hide these attributes easily. For retailers that sell physical products, these attributes ensure consistency and are important for logistics. 

With Magelia WebStore version 3 we will introduce an extensibility pattern that will allow you create new features and crate back-office screens. It may be a solution in the future to meet this expectation.

Best regards,

Thanks ! As the attributes are optionnal, that's not a problem. Can't wait for this plugin system allowing to hook some hiding feature :)
