Users of Magento will probably be familiar with how simply changing the product display to ‘Product Info Column’ when creating a product, can vastly improve the appearance of a product on the front-end. Leaving this to a client however is something that they could possibly forget to change while in the middle of adding hundreds of products. You can make ‘Product Info Column’ be selected by default by making a simple change in the database.
- Find the table ‘eav_attribute’ and look for a row with the attribute code ‘options_container’ (ID 102 in Magento 1.6).
- You will see a field called ‘options_container’, which is set by default to ‘container2′.
Just change to ‘container1′, then press the Go button at the bottom of the page.
Now Product Info Column will be your default choice when creating a product.
