I created a custom field to show up for my products after purchasing the business edition. And yes I did select radio button to show on Front-end as yes. The preview also shows what it should look like but when I go to my product it only says "Specifications" and does not show the field in which my shoppers can enter the info.

Any ideas here.

Never mind . I realized I had to put it under "Item" and not "Product" for the table.

What's the difference? Does it have to do with options?

1. Also can you specify the field for a certain product within a category or is it only for categories?

2. Is there a way to create a text heading above all the custon text fields. For example "Fill out Form"

3. Can I move the custom text fields for the product display below the "add to cart" function?

Thanks!

I suppose you can move this out of "Bug Report" since I'm the bug :) I don't know how to do that.

With "product" custom fields, you can add information to your products. So the fields appear in the product edition page, not the product page.

With "item" custom fields , it's your customers who can add information to the products they buy.

1. You can only restrict custom fields to categories. However, since one product can have several categories, you can always create a new category, leave it unpbulished, add it to your product and use it in your custom field so that the custom field will only display for that product.

2. You mean like a custom field of the type "custom text" ? :p

3. Yes. you need to edit the file "show" of the view "product" via the menu Display->Views and move the code:
<div id="hikashop_product_quantity_main" class="hikashop_product_quantity_main"><?php
$this->row =& $this->element;
$this->ajax = 'if(hikashopCheckChangeForm(\'item\',\'hikashop_product_form\')){ return hikashopModifyQuantity(\''.$this->row->product_id.'\',field,1'.$form.'); } else { return false; }';
$this->setLayout('quantity');
echo $this->loadTemplate();
?>
</div>
<?php

before the code:
if(!$this->params->get('catalogue') && ($this->config->get('display_add_to_cart_for_free_products') || !empty($this->element->prices))){
if(!empty($this->itemFields)){

and change the line:
$form = '';
to:
$form = ',\'hikashop_product_form\'';

Hello,

That topic is 5 years old.
So it's sure that you do not have the same issue.

But you do have some misconfiguration problem.
Please check the custom field configuration and open a new thread if needed.
