Hi

 

I've reached my limit on metafields, shoould I create more product templates or is there a round the 20 metafield cap?

 

I've made a video explaining my problem:

Thanks for your help. Alan

Hi @alanbrimm There are few workaround that I can think of right now:

 

  • I am not sure if you are aware of metaobject or not, or if you have tried it or not, if you haven't try it then it's worth a try and you may find the solution for your issue.
  • if you have already tried the metaobject and unable to find the solution then the another option will be to have a metafield app from the Shopify app store, and you will be able to add the metafields through those app.
  • The more complicated way that I can think of is accomplishing it from the backend with the help of javascript, it is way more complicated and may need a lot of work so that you can achieve this.

If you will unable to implement the same then I'm happy to do this for you, let me know. I can implement the code changes so that this will work well for you.

 

Hopefully it will help you. If yes then Please don't forget hit Like and Mark it as solution!

 

Best Regards

Hey Alan.

As for the metafields, you can have up to 250. However, only 20 can only be pinned, like you've encountered. But you can access the unpinned ones by clicking the "View all".

Hi Paul

 

Thanks for your reply, can unpinned metafileds be used on live product pages?

@alanbrimm 

If you click on the "Connect dynamic source", you should see all the fields in there - including the unpinned ones.
