Custom Fields Question
« on: March 31, 2014, 02:57:54 am »

Ok, I'm getting to grips with custom fields and it's actually quite intuitive once you've done a few hundred :)

One thing I'm convinced I'm doing wrong is drop downs.  I add a custom field called Colour, put Red;Green;Blue in the default, set it to cart attribute, list, etc.

Then I go to the product and I have to add it in three times (for the example above) and select each option.

Is there no way I can just tell a product I want ALL colours?  I tend to keep everything separate so I'll have Shoe 1 colours - black;brown and Shoe 2 colours - black;brown rather than just Shoe colours - black;brown.  Some of the products have 40 colours, 6 sizes and other attributes.  It's a nightmare to add all this in!

Any ideas?
