adding extra fields to product information
« on: January 05, 2015, 13:20:41 pm »
Hi All, using Virtuemart 3 now - is it possible to add extra fields to product information that will display frontend and connect to csv improved - even if it is an extension?

Many thanks,
Chris

its a big flaw of VM because custom fields post badly to SQL and this is the reason why you cant get a clean export/import of CSV data.
it just posts all of it in a big text file, you also cant add anything new so i want to change and add core product info fields.

I think that CSVI supports custom fields.

If you want cleaner and lighter db records, you can use this plugin
http://breakdesigns.net/extensions/customfields-for-all

It is supported by CSVI as well
