Add Extra Fields

Extra fields allow you to insert custom variable tags into your pages that are associated with a set, model, category of 2257 record. This is useful for adding data that is non-searchable. Examples might be a person rating of an update, a custom upsell or store URL for a model or content set or model bio fields such as Twitter Handle.

Step 1) Log into your cms admin panel and click Plug-Ins and then Extra Fields,  Manage . Here you can specify a custom field that can be edited via the admin panel. Assign a name and enter a value for the contents of the field. Specify the location of the field so the data can belong to a model, set, etc. as intended.

Step 2) In order for the contents of the field to be displayed on a site you must first add the new variable tag to your template in each location you want the field to appear.

For PHP templates:

There is no need to edit the PHP templates. The system will add the fields as you add them.

For Smarty Templates:

Step 1) Paste the following tag into a Smarty template and replace TITLEHERE with the title/name you assigned to the extra field in the admin panel

{$root.page.results.extrafields.TITLEHERE[0]}
