Adding Custom Fields to the Shopify Dashboard

Not as pretty as the current collection picker, but this will do the job. You're going to have to (sorry) add specific strings to the key so the code knows what sort of field it is. Existing fields won't be broken.

Collection field support is released in the current master. For this to work you'll need to add the "[_c]" marker into the key name. eg:

namespace: custom_fields
key name: some-key[_c]
value: your value

The marker will be hidden from the client side so it does not look as ugly.

Jason, looks awesome as usual!
I cannot find the basic and rough user guide - where did you hide it?

Thanks

I took the link down as the later updates (and conversion to a chrome app) made the doc redundant or wrong in places. I need to make another.

Hi Jason—

Really great plugin. I appreciate your effort and dedication. One question for you—are you able to easily make the inputs for the custom fields <textarea>'s instead of text type inputs? Or an option to do as such? My end hope is to implement a rich text editor for these fields as they are able to maintain any HTML put it them.

It would be easy enough to make them text areas or add a marker to set them as such (or auto switch them). Still early days on this tool with plenty of work still needing to be done but I agree 100% that it needs text areas. People are starting to show some more interest in it, so I'll pull my finger out and do the same.

As for your hope - that pretty easy. I did add a second (and third) RTE for a customised version so it's quite possible should you feel that way inclined. Image inserts and such are flaky, but generally editing is fine.

Thanks for your reply Jason. Can you point me in the right direction on how to implement this as a custom feature? Text input is all I need, image inserts aren't necessary for the store I'm building. 

 

I'd be able to host the customized version on my end, but don't want to go outside your comfort zone with that.

Are you just needing some help on how to get this thing to work? I know I've given close to zero usage instructions...
