Skip extending scope hint title on empty checkbox options value



Displays a hint when a configuration value is overwritten on a lower scope (website or store view). Works for product and category attributes too (as of v0.3.0)

Whenever a configuration setting is overwritten by a lower level website or store view, an icon is displayed. On Mouseover, a list of all stores / websites which overwrite the setting is shown with the respective values. See the screenshot to get an overview about what the module does.
