I need to remove the SKU field from product page only for few products, I'm sure that I can do it with "layout update XML" tab but all my attempts have failed.. any help? :)

Try this solution.

You have to mention the block container name also

<referenceContainer name="product.info.stock.sku">
       <referenceBlock name="product.info.sku" remove="true" />

Here,product.info.stock.sku is the container name of your block.

<referenceContainer name="{CONTAINER_NAME_OF_BLOCK}">
       <referenceBlock name="{BLOCK_NAME_AT_LAYOUT}" remove="true" />

If it not work then you can use the below solution also.

  • Create a new container

  • and Move your block to this container

  • After that remove container:

<container name="my.new.sections" htmlTag="div" />
<move element="product.info.sku" destination="my.new.sections" />
<referenceContainer name="my.new.sections" remove="true" />


<container name="{New_Conatiner_Name}" htmlTag="div" />
<move element="{BLOCK_NAME_AT_LAYOUT}" destination="{New_Conatiner_Name}" />
<referenceContainer name="{New_Conatiner_Name}" remove="true" />
  • No one works :( I've tryed to add "<container name="my.new.sections" htmlTag="div" /> <move element="product.info.sku" destination="my.new.sections" /> <referenceContainer name="my.new.sections" remove="true" />" on layout update xml of an Item without success, I've tryed to add "<container name="my.new.sections" htmlTag="div" />" on catalog_product_view.xml and this code on layout update xml "<move element="product.info.stock.sku" destination="my.new.sections" /> <referenceContainer name="my.new.sections" remove="true" />" but still the same, SKU is showing as usual

  1. Go to backend
  2. Select products that You need
  3. Edit attributes and choose layout update.

  4. Paste this:

<referenceBlock name="product.info.sku" remove="true" />

and save

Update: Add reference container around referenceBlock

<referenceContainer name="your container ">



  • I have already tried with this, but the result is an error on saving: Element 'referenceBlock': This element is not expected. Expected is one of ( referenceContainer, container, update, move, head, body ). Line: 1

  • Hmm This worked for all in product view xml.Maybe You could move this element only for this few products and hide it via css using specific classes.
