    Hello,

    I’ve searched the knowledgebase, but I can’t find anything related on how to add a new custom field to the bottom of the add products page, please could you let me know? I just need to add a required text field.

    Thanks,

    James

    Following this James as I also need to add an additional field – ‘dispatch days’ and then also display the contents of the field on the website.

    I currently use the Advanced Custom Field plug in to add the field on the wp-admin screens but I never did work out how to display on my website! So I actually ended up typing it in for vendors myself in the description!

    There is an article in the knowledge base on how to integrate with the Advanced Custom Fields plug in, but I’m struggling to understand what I need to do as I only have a tiny brain lol! 😉

    Here’s the article for reference: https://www.wcvendors.com/kb/pro-adding-advanced-custom-fields-acf-support/

    @digitalchild can you write a quick gist for this as a template and I’ll add it to the KB?

    Hello,

    It appears the code I wrote for this isn’t actually in the right place at the moment so it won’t work. I’ve moved it to the correct place now so it will work in the next release. Apologies for that! I’ll be writing up a full how-to with custom fields to both the store settings and the product page this weekend.

    The basic idea is any field you add to the front end form that has an id that starts with ‘_wcv_custom_product’ or ‘_wcv_custom_setting’ will automatically be saved to the db you just have to add a form helper form.

    Here is a gist that would be a custom input as requested above on the product edit form.

    cheers,

    Jamie.

    Hi Jamie,

    Thanks for this – i am currently using the first version of WC Vendors Pro – I have edited all of the templates quite heavily and played around with it a lot, so i am very wary of updating the plugin as it’s working fine as it is for me and the purpose it has. I’m also very tight for time as my client wanted to launch a week ago.

    Will this Github code work on the original version? If not, would you be able to tell me which files i need to change in order for it to?

    Thanks again

    James

    Hi @jamesthurlow989 I was scared of updating too, but as I’d amended the templates by copying them into themes, all my settings/personalisation stayed after upgrading 🙂

    Look forward to the guide too! 🙂

    Hi James, know you’re super busy, just wondering if you’ve managed to write the help guide and if the code will be in the right place for the next release?
    Many thanks,

    Karen 🙂

    This does not work. The field shows in the front end edit product form, but it does not save.

    Hi Kenny,

    Why don’t you think it saves? Any meta key that starts with _wcv_custom_product automatically saves to the product meta. In Pro v1.2.0 you can call it wcv_custom_product (no _ underscore) and then the field would also show up under the CUstom Fields meta box. (Pro v1.2.0 is being packaged now, will be released within the hour).

    Custom fields that start with _ do not show up on the Custom Fields meta box.

    Custom fields that start with anything else will show up.

    Ahhhhh I didn’t realize _wcv_custom_product was required. I changed the custom field to include that at the beginning and it does indeed work now. Thanks.
