To edit product attributes in the top menu, select "Products / Attributes"
In order to create a new attribute, you must click on the green rectangle with a cross inside.
A new window will open:
Each attribute can be named, assigned a type and assigned a sort order.
Common in any language is the "id" attribute and its "Type", to choose from a drop-down list - text, select, radio.
Examples of how we can use the attribute type:
- "text" is a plain text that, for example, describes the characteristics of a product, you can see it here: Apple iPhone 8 Plus
- "select" - with the help of this attribute type, we can make a drop-down list of the required product values, you can see it here: Apple iPhone 8 Plus
After filling all fields, click "OK" and the attribute appears in the general list.
The attribute will be assigned the first available "id" in ascending order.
Now you need to add the possible values of the newly created attribute - just click on the "Option Values" tab and on the "plus".
In a new window, from the drop-down list, select "Option name" and fill in its value. You can also select an image for this attribute and sort order. When finished, click the "OK" button.
The system itself assigns the appropriate "id" to each valid value.
