Best practice for hiding/removing unneeded product fields?
« on: June 12, 2018, 07:32:48 AM »
In an effort to streamline data entry and product creation, I would like to either hide or move to the bottom of the page, those fields that I do not plan to move.

Are there any recommended best practices in this regard? I assume the only way to do this is to edit the code in one of the .tpl files. Is that correct?

Thank you.

Be careful to not hide required or important fields like Store

Could you please tell me which .tpl file is the one to edit for the "general" data entry section for products? I can't make heads or tails out of all the physical files and when I search for control names shown in source, I come up empty.

Thank you.
