Hi,

ShopifyFD is throwing up an error of late. It tells me it's loaded but when I go to a product page I get the following error message.

ShopifyFD error : setup_products : Metafield target HTML not found

In fact, I can't seem to see any of the extra functionality that ShopifyFD added??

Any ideas?

Yeah, that's on me to update some code in the tool. There's repo linked below if you want to add an issue/bug report (assuming the specific issue you're hitting isn't already there).

https://github.com/freakdesign/shopifyFD/issues

What are you doing? What page type? etc. All good info to know.

Hi Jason

Thanks for the reply.

I look after two Shopify sites. A sports company www.olorun-sports.com and an equestrian clothing company www.lansdowncountry.com.

I was particularly interested in the metafield functionality in ShopifyFD to add garment specific information to product pages. All round I've found ShopifyFD a useful tool.

If it's just some basic metafield addition to a product it is something you can do in the Admin now via the Bulk Editor. 

See this link (And scroll down the edit metafields in the admin section):

Not the neatest method but can be handy if you're stuck and want to avoid an app.

Hi,
Just use the Metafield Guru instead of Shopify FD:

Our Custom Fields app and corresponding Chrome Extension work much the same way that FD did. We're currently working on improvements to this topic in the app as well. Once complete, it will be able to quickly replace FD and import all of your existing settings. Check out 

https://apps.shopify.com/custom-fields-2 and enable "Other metafields" in the app's settings. If you get stuck, shoot us a note, happy to help. :)
