How to view attribute only in one store? My question is: How to Display attribute only in one store? I have a multistore views. For example. How can I view dimension only on technical view but not for standart customers view?

What you can do is create a child theme for that store and with your themes layout xml file, add the attribute code.

So for example if I was to extend from the RWD theme and set "Color" not to be used on the product listing page I would do the following to display "Color" in my child theme.

1. Add custom layout file


2. Add Attribute

Then in my custom.xml file, I would do the following:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout version="0.1.0">
        <reference name="product_list">
            <action method="addAttribute">
  • Yes, it would be, but what if I have 500 attributes? And over time someone decides to make a difference? There is a possibility to do it from the administration?

  • Well 500 attributes would seem unlikely but there isn't an option in the Magento admin which would turn on/off a attribute per store view that I know of . Even if you did have that option, in the example above I left out that you would have to update your template to get the value e.g. $product->getColor(); Mar 15, 2016 at 8:05
