You're right I did forget it. It's designs-by-melissacb.myshopify.com. As for the metafields set up for DAWN, where can I find that information.

Actually, I found that article with the setup, but I believe I've already set it up correctly.

would you like to share it with us? I also have metafields but when i go to my products page and add a text block and try to insert dynamic sources, i can only see TITLE and VENDOR (i managed adding  NUMERIC and single line TEXT metafields but this is way to limited! )

Okay, I can go through each step that I did for you. Maybe you've already done these steps, but if not, hopefully this helps.

 

1. First under Settings>Metafields, I clicked products and set up the metafields that I wanted to show up on my product pages. In my case, it was "Details" and "How it Works". 

You can do this by clicking "Add Definition" in the upper right corner, adding a name for your definition (like Details), and then selecting a content type depending on what you will use that metafield for.

2. Once you have your metafields set up, you go to Online Store>Customize. Then from the dropdown at the top of the page, click "Default Product".

3. Under product information, click "Add Block". Choose "Collapsible Tab".

4. Add a Heading (E.g. Details). Then, in the tab content section click the "Insert Dynamic Source" Icon and choose your metafield. (Or alternatively, if you're gonna have the exact same text on all products, you could just type into the tab content section.)

5. Then on your products, you can add the metafield information, which is at the bottom of the product page.

thanks designsbymcn,
I also used collapsible tabs, it seems all metafield types can be displayed there.

The issue was that i could not add custom metafields on a text block where there is the button/option to add metafields as well. But not all, only TITLE, VENDOR (default) and the custom metafields of TEXT (single line) and numeric, maybe others. But not TEXT multi-line, URL etc, 

It does not make sense to add all metafield info in collapsible tabs!

In my case i can now display the info i want but i am thinking about other options where collapsible tabs are not the way to do things. How do you display multiline TEXT metafield then?
