Jason, this is a brilliant tool. Thanks a million!

Hoewever, I find myself constantly forgetting where the different "hacks" (for lack of a better term) are placed. Right now, for instance, I cannot for the life of me find the bulk tag editor. Last week, I spent an hour looking for the global metafield editor.

Is there any hope that you might make a short helpfile - or perhaps simply add to the list of features a hint stating on what page each feature can be found?

(Just sent you a tip - if you use this tool, please support Jason!)

Indeed! If you are using this and never tipped Jason, I don't know you, you're not my friend. SHAME on you.

Seriously, I use Jason's tool everyday, it's saving me so much time, and so much hair. It deserves an award for best Shopify helper tool ever, Best Contribution to the Shopify's Community 2012, 2013, 2014. 

A lot of genius and work has gone into this. Genius that I don't know anyone capable of except Jason.

You can help keep [Jason] full of caffeine by dropping a few dollars in [his] tip jar

Documentation is terrible (non existent) though it is noted on the todo list (see first post). Updates to the tool have stabilized to it's probably time to get that sorted as a wiki or something. Don't spend an hour looking for it next time - no one has got time for that madness - just shoot me a tweet or something.

Super kind words Caroline - thankyou. I wouldn't go anywhere as far as saying that no one else would be capable of it, but what the hell -  I'll take that compliment ;) 

Tips are nice (maybe even awesome), but if that tool helps us create better sites for store owners it was time well spent.

There was some quick style tweaks made to keep it in line with the recent Shopify dashboard update. Let me know if you see any bugs that might have crept in with this update. I've not seen any yet but I am sure someone will be able to make it go boom.

Hey guys / Jason!

I am having a little bit of a struggle adding to this section on the product page:

I am using both ShopifyFD and Custom Fields — the Chrome extensions, from Jason.

I assumed I could use ShopifyFD to add a field that would show up on all product pages. I tried this but nothing new is showing up on product pages:

Caroline - you're more than welcome to contact me directly but let me do some tests later today. Clearly something needs fixing. Seeing that still also reminded me that I need to extend it past the safety net of 50 items. 

  • Did the metafields even get saved?
  • What namespace did you use

​If you did want to make a custom field appear on ALL products you can also just set a single shop level metafield rather than bulk adding to all. I really need to get some documentation done on this!

Hi Jason! This is some great work you've done, it's very helpful! I really enjoy the "Choose another page to edit" feature. Having to go back and forth takes way too long. I was wondering if you were planning on adding a similar feature to the products page? I know it would be a pain for a lot of large store owners to use but for those of us with small inventories it would be very helpful!

I was thinking of adding a drop-down to the linklist editing page so I'll do products at the same time. Would limit it to something like 25 products (if that) so not sure how many would get any use out of it.

Hi Jason!

How do you add “Custom Fields” to products, that may then be seen in the Custom Fields section using the Custom Fields extension?

Did the metafields even get saved?

Yes, showing up using ShopifyFD.

What namespace did you use

recommendations

​If you did want to make a custom field appear on ALL products you can also just set a single shop level metafield rather than bulk adding to all.

That will then show up under Custom Fields, and a shopper will be able to set a different value for each product? I tried shop metafields on the shop settings page, but that only belongs to the shop, and not to the products.

Again, do you have instructions, in the way of a walk-tru example for example, on how to add Custom Fields to products that will show up in the Custom Fields section using the Custom Fields extension?

How do you populate this section:

The worlds roughest user guide for custom fields. Largely incomplete, but at least I've made a start. It only covers Custom Fields for for all products so far, not ones that can be added on a single products.
