Me too! I keep hoping the elves will do this for me whilst I sleep but they never do.

(Elves have done a little more work on the docs.)

Hi Jason,

I just installed the chrome custom fields and shopifyFD extensions. I added a store metafield with the namespace c_t but for some reason the custom fields on the product page remain empty. (see screenprints attached) What am I missing?

Thanks.

M

Did I manage to write c_t as one of the default namespaces in the document?

That would not surprise me as I pushed the help doc out at stupid o'clock one morning so I'd expect typos. The namespace you might be wanting is c_f. If you want to use c_t you could add that to the white-list.

Hi Jason, I've got a long, enviable record of being daft, so I'm sure it's just me.

Any idea why I can't get this to show up?

...and yet

You and me both. Especially before I get a dose of caffeine. 

I can see you're using the default namespace but is this a shop level metafield, or just added to the product itself? It has to be a shop level metafield. So if you're using ShopifyFD jump to /admin/settings/general and chuck one in there.

It could also be a bug so keep me posted - I'd like to have all the little quirks cleaned up before the next major update to add page, product and linklist selectors.

Did you guys ever figure out the Rich Text Editor functionality for the meta fields? This would REALLY help me out. If you have any instructions as to how to add new rich text editors to the product pages so we can enter in multiple text sections, I would seriously be forever grateful. Has anyone done it successfully?

It worked for a while but updates to the Shopify Dashboard js had some ill side effects on my end. I'd need to review their code again to see what's possible. For now, RTE additions are on hold.
