    I’d like to add a custom input field to the “product edit” form. I’d like the value entered into that field to be passed through as a “custom product attribute” for that product when the form is submitted.

    I see that there’s custom product attribute handling in place within the wc vendors pro plugin code, and it looks like the default template is meant to display it with:

    <?php WCVendors_Pro_Form_helper::attribute( $object_id ); ?>

    However, when I use the default template, I don’t see a field for it. Is the custom attribute input field function working at the moment? If so, how do I get it to display on the product edit page? And is it possible to use this input field to create a custom product attribute for a product?

    You could use Advanced Custom Fields and then the code from the KnowledgeBase for using it, that’s probably the easiest way.

    The Attributes form helper you see now wont do much till v1.2.0 when variations and attributes are actually supported. That’s kinda just placeholder code that doesnt do anything yet.
