I have a configurable product which shows 4 dropdowns in the frontend on the product detail page. I'd like to hide some of them, and was hoping to achieve this using "Visible on Product View Page on Front-end" setting for the attributes, but they still appear in the frontend. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
That means you chose all four attributes when you created your configurable product. Now these values must be chosen by customer. You can not hide it.
Create same configurable product but only select what attributes you need to show in frontend.
