Hi Community, 

I am trying to add a couple information about my vendors that can be then displayed on a collection or vendor page. 
Basically I would love to show my vendors link to his website, IG ou YouTube page...

I therefore need to : 

  1. Add custom fields in my backend to input the links (url + possibly add a css class to then present it differently if it's a website or an IG profile)
  2. Be able to retrieve those info in the corresponding liquid page. 

I have looked to created a new liquid object but couldn't find a matching solutions and I imagine that something easy is just around the corner but can't figure it out ! 

Thanks a lot for your help !

This is an excellent use case for the Customer Fields app. You can create a unique registration form for vendors (and even auto-tag them as such for easy segmentation). Any custom fields you add using the app are saved to Shopify metafields so you display data on the storefront or use that data to create augmented/personalized experiences.

This guide from our developer documentation may be relevant.

On second thought, since you want to display a vendor's details publicly on collection pages, customer metafields are not going to work. Sorry!
