Virtuemart - Disable SKU

Been working on Joomla and VirtueMart lately :) On of the "customization" that people (client) always want is to disable or remove the SKU number from cart, or basket, or order details page.

Did a Google search a found out that there are quite a number of people out there offering solutions to remove SKU, but at a high price. Actually, you can hide the print of the SKU in the basket and order details page.

To disable SKU in "basket", find the file at
Note: If you are using other customized theme, go to ../theme/<your-theme>/ instead.

Inside that file around like 23 you will find the header of the column print

You can comment that or delete Usually, to be safe, I'll just comment it ( /* .......*/ ).

Then for the SKU code, around line 31, do the same thing, remove or comment it.

To disable SKU in "account order details" page, find the file at

Then, find all the lines that contains "SKU" and delete/comment them out.

Hope this helps some of you out there. :)
