I would like to remove the 'Please select' option from a dropdown menu and assign my first option as the default option.

You can check it here: http://store.hbros.co.uk/beef-aubergine.html

I've already checked some tutorials but none of them works. What could I do?



Try this before that take Bakup you have to overwrite below file to remove please select for cutom option

Copy \app\code\core\Mage\Catalog\Block\Product\View\Options\Type\Select.php to \app\code\local\Mage\Catalog\Block\Product\View\Options\Type\Select.php

Find below code:

if ($_option->getType() == Mage_Catalog_Model_Product_Option::OPTION_TYPE_DROP_DOWN) {
                ->addOption('', $this->__('-- Please Select --'));

Replace it with

if ($_option->getType() == Mage_Catalog_Model_Product_Option::OPTION_TYPE_DROP_DOWN) {
               // ->addOption('', $this->__('-- Please Select --'));

And you have done.

  • I don't have this folder "\app\code\local\Mage\Catalog", I have only "Customer" & "Eav" – Ricardo DeLa Rosa Nieto Mar 19 '16 at 16:08
