Adding A New Field
« on: March 04, 2010, 22:17:25 pm »
I'm creating a online music store for a customer and I need to be able to enter in products by Artist, Genres, Album Name.

Is there a way to add extra fields so that can be done?

Thanks

You could use "Product Types".  For instance, one way to do it would be to have your Albums be the products and then have Artist and Genre be "Types".  Or Genres could be Categories and then only Artist would be a Type.  Check out this chapter in the user manual:

If you decide to use Types, you may want to check out this commercial add-on: http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/extension-specific/virtuemart-extensions/virtuemart-products-search/10328
