You can delete it directly from the database. Just be careful what you delete and make a backup of the database first.

Running Opencart v2.2 with multi-stores from http://www.labeshops.com which has links to all my stores.

I'm new to OpenCart, I appreciate a reply from a moderator.

This problem is really annoying, is there a way to allow attributes to be removed ?

What if my catalog contain 4000 items ?

I was checking other ecommerce platforms, when you delete attributes, the system inform you that some products are using those attributes, if you proceed then the attribute will be deleted. in addition the products holding those attributes will become clean.

...but why comparing another Shop Software with this one? if you don't like the way, OC is doing it, just use the other one.
Plus, there are no 'official' OC-paid Moderators around here, to assist, when it comes to OC related Problems, if you require professional Support, just click the link below, anything else is free of charge, and just by 'Feelings'. But they may not be so positive, if Newbie's come here and seemengly start to complain about Things in the first few posts already. :o

Take it, just from another User around here, also assisting others, frequently, by 'Feelings' only ... 8)

It's so logical to compare platforms before you migrate. no need to get offended. who are you anyway ?
this is so out of topic. If you don't have useful idea don't respond.

If there isn't already an extension to do this, you can post a request in the commercial forum. Should be an easy mod.

One way to do it yourself is by using the free export/import module by JNeuhof and delete all unwanted attributes before importing it back. The tricky part is that you need to know all the product_ids

Attn: I no longer provide OpenCart extensions, nor future support - this includes forum posts.
Reason: OpenCart version 3+ ;D

Thanks!
