Custom Product Attributes?


Mike Atkins

Recommended Posts

I wish to set up a couple of stores, and I like what I see with CubeCart, but I need to be able to have custom product attributes (as distinct from product options).

For example, my wife has  a jewellery business, and we need an attribute that says whether the item is a necklace, bracelet, earrings or ring. I allso aim to have an online bookstore for self-published authors, and so need those attributes.

Is there a way to do this?

There are a couple of Extensions that add additional Product fields. These fields can be used for anything.

I use this one and have enhanced it:

if your technical, it's quite simple. add more columns to CubeCart_inventory table to hold the data  you require. the new fields are then available to your store theme as part of the smarty $PRODUCT array.

then you just need to add those fields to the admin template (create a custom version).

This can all be added to a module to auto add the fields

Why not create top level categories to separate these types of items - they can be further sub-categorised so necklace/gold ; necklace/silver for example

You will need to add additional fields to hold custom data for books
