How to "Relate Products" - VM2.0.6 & J2.5.2
« on: May 25, 2012, 08:31:50 am »
Hi ! I just can't seem to find a way to "relate an item" or "relate a category" to a new product anywhere in the backend of new VM2 / J25 site. No VM1 style "Related products" tab on backend product page ! What am I overlooking or missing ? Where has the list gone ?

In VM2 all I can find is the "Custom Fields" tab on Product Details Page, with two input areas : "Related Categories > Search for Related Categories > Reset" & the other : "Related Products > Search for Related Products > Reset" - Then there's the "Custom Field Type" with a drop down - ?

To "Relate Products / Categories" in  VM2 do I have to create a "Custom Field" or something ? If so can anybody help with a "step by step" for this ? Cheers  :)

No need to add a custom field - in the boxes that you've found, just start typing the name of another product.

It should bring up a few products below - choose which one you want as "related", Job done!
