Hi Jason,

Thank you for your guide. It is actually awesome!

Do you think a Save button is missing from the Custom Fields extension?

I am able to add “custom fields” as per your guide:

But when I enter a value...

... and then click on the Save at the very top right of the product page, and reload the page, nothing has been saved:

Hi Caroline, 

Thanks a lot for all of your help. I was wandering if you might be able to help me centre my logo on my homepage. I am using the theme Philadelphia - All the Gadgets. 

Cheers
Darren

There 'should' be a save button. You're not seeing this? 

Maybe something with the new UI update is causing a small conflict. I'll have to see if I can duplicate it.

Aaah never mind, I am so sorry, Jason! The Save with Custom Fields button is showing up fine for me now, and does work!

Thank you so much for putting this together! :)

It's cool to know people are making use of it. It's a fun little sideproject - just need a bit more time to spend on it. 

I am working on the 'whitelist' version of the tool now so that should make it a bit more useful for those with existing namespace conventions (aka: "recommendations"). Locking people into set namespaces was not the greatest idea - as I am finding it annoying, others probably are too.

Monumental Mounts:
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!

Done. If you've got 25 or less products you'll see the dropdown.

OH YES! I am working on an app that will use the namespace 'recommendations', so if your tool could automatically read those, it would be awesome!

Hi...On the product Metafields , all the values we saved as integers have lost their decimal places - like 9.5 is now 9.  Ok I know 9.5 isnt an integer but we presumed that integers were behaving like numbers rather than text strings as decimals were previously saving.  What happened?

There was an update to metafield handling on Shopify side but I am not sure what that entailed.

Nothing has changed on my end in regards to integers saving but that doesn't mean I am not being too heavy handing with type casting either. I can check into things, but it does make sense that an integer field would only return 9 - even if it didn't before.

I've noticed a change too. Had to edit our templates using MF data to replace == '1' with == 1.

Thanks Jason for the quick reply.  Typical of Shopify - change our data without telling us
