Hi Guys,

I have been trying to work this out for a while now and i may be missing somthing simple.

When you look at a product you see a list of titles such as:

Product Description
----------------------------------------------------------------------

or

Product Tags
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

or

Customer Reviews
----------------------------------------------------------------------

How do we add new ones with the associated content below it like

Tips
----------------------------------------------------------------------

or

Documentation
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Any help is much appreciated.

Cheers!

Warren

For anyone who may have the same question:

It seems that this is not accomplished using the back end only.

You can create your attributes (or attribute sets), but will have to edit the templates by hand and use an xml function like ‘getChild’ to pull the attribute data into the page layout.

May seem a little scary, but in principle its a good way of working it, giving more control over the layouts.

Have a good read through this: http://www.magentocommerce.com/design_guide/
