Can I add my own additional / custom product fields to populate with data?



You can create up to 50 of your own custom products data fields. They can be used for product settings or to display more information on the product page.

You can create the following field types:

  1. Data Fields
  2. Text Fields
  3. Short Text Fields
  4. True / False Selectors
  5. Selection Boxes


To create a new custom product field:

  1. Go to Setup & Tools > All settings & tools
     
  2. Under the Products header click on Custom Product Fields
     

  3. Click Add New.


 

4. Enter the Field Name.

5. Select the Field Type:

  • Short Text - for text with a character limit. Then enter the maximum number of characters in Maximum Length.
  • Text - for longer text. You can even use the WYSIWYG Editor with this field.
  • Date - for a date with a date picker.
  • Integer Number - for whole numbers.
  • Decimal Number - for numbers with decimal places like currency.
  • True/False - displays a drop down menu with the values True and False.
  • Selection Box - displays a customisable drop down menu. Enter the options in Selection Box Options. One option per line.

6. Select the Section on the product page (in the control panel) where you want to display the field. It will appear at the bottom of that section.

7. Show On Product Display Page controls if the displays on the on the product page. Your theme may need to be changed to support this option.

8. Show On Product Thumbnail controls if the displays on the on the product category pages. Your theme may need to be changed to support this option.

9. The Field Description is for internal information only. It will not display on your site.

10. Click on Save.

 

Most themes would require a design change to display a custom field. Use the tag where misc1 is the Field ID. You will find the Field ID by going to

  1. Go to Setup & Tools > All settings & tools
     
  2. Under the Products header click on Custom Product Fields and check the left-hand column.
