Well, I’ve Googled, and hunted and am still drawing a blank on this one.

I’m on 1.7.0.2 and I want to apply a custom layout update to a category, but I don’t have the Custom Layout Update field that everybody else appears to have. I’m sure I’m missing something obvious, but I still can’t fathom what it is. Can anyone relieve my madness?

Well, no help forthcoming, but I’ve finally figured this one out myself:

Apparently, at sometime during an upgrade, some lines went missing from the following tables. Use phpMyAdmin to insert them back in in the order shown and Bob, as they say, is your uncle.

eav_attribute table, insert:

(55, 3, ‘custom_layout_update’, NULL, ‘catalog/attribute_backend_customlayoutupdate’, ‘text’, ‘’, ‘’, ‘textarea’, ‘Custom Layout Update’, ‘’, ‘’, 0, 0, ‘’, 0, ‘’)

eav_entity_attribute table, insert:

(55, 3, 3, 11, 55, 60)

catalog_eav_attribute table, insert:

(55, ‘’, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, ‘’, 0, 0, 0, 1)
