Joomla 1.5 + Virtuemart How to tweak product detail pages

My client wants me to remove the rating piece and the ability to ask a question about the product. She says it makes the page too busy. Can anyone tell me how I can remove those so they do not display on the page you view when you click on a product for more details?

the first tab Global second row to left you have
Front End features

Thanks, rating is gone. Can you tell me what file I need to edit to get rid of the button that is labeled "Ask a question about this product"?

If you look in


you will see all the templates, select the one you have as default and open it with an editor

Look for this
<?php echo $ask_seller ?>

Open in new window

remove it

Heres a quick list of the others
<?php echo $this->vmlistAdditionalImages( $product_id, $images ) ?> - handles extra images
<?php echo $product_name ?> - product name
<?php echo $product_packaging ?> - packaging type
<?php echo $product_s_description ?> - short desc
<?php echo $product_description ?> - full desc
<?php echo $product_type ?>
<?php echo $product_reviews ?>
<?php echo $related_products ?>
<?php echo $vendor_link ?>
<?php echo $recent_products; ?>

Open in new window

All pretty self explanatory what each does so remove ones you dont want.
