I'm taking my first steps with Magento2 and it's a bit of a struggle. I want to change the weight unit (Picture: Gewichtseenheid (in Dutch)) but it's grayed out and on the right there is Use Standard (Gebruik Standaard). But where can I find this standard for weight unit (but also for storename etc)
If you untick the
Gebruik Standaard checkbox you can edit the value.
The reason being, you are on the website level (see the drop-down on the left above the side Navi). This way you can configure values separately for websites, stores, and store views.
Websites: each website has its unique customer and order base. Websites are ‘parents’ of stores. A website consists of one or more stores.
Stores: stores can be used eg: to have 2 exact same content stores using different themes and URLs.
Store views: Store Views are mostly used to handle different languages on your website eg: one Store View per language.
Depending on the module, each value in the backend can be set either for the global website level, store-level, or store view level. The
Use Standard checkbox allows you to use the settings of the parent, so you don't have to configure multiple stores separately with the same settings if you just configure their parent website.
