  1. I see that product tag is great tool to make your search powerful.

    I have add many related tags in each products.

    I wish to hide it from product page. How can I do that from Admin panel?

    1. Hello Mehul,

      That is not standard OpenCart behavior, but you may be able to do it if you edit the code. I highly recommend against that, however. You may want to see if there is a extension that allows for that in the OpenCart extension search.

      Kindest Regards,
