I need to add a true description to categories for show them in the frontend category page.
(a textarea related to a TEXT field on the DB)
I Looking inside the code finding two things
1) all the fields dispalyed in the catalog_category/edit (Name, Is Active, etc...) are stored in the eav_attribute table on the DB
2) the catalog/category/edit.phtml make a call to $this->getTabsHtml() that output the forms but I don’t know were is it.
My questions are:
where are the files that generate the forms?
where are the files that manage the forms data to update the DB records
where are (or better how are) sorted those information on the DB?
I very like to work on this product but it’s not easy to understand how it work
