If you don't need the model field just use that one as it is pre-existing. Otherwise you'll have to add the column to the database and also the appropriate scripts (admin/categories.php, /product_info.php, etc). Alternately, you can install a contribution that extends the functionality of attributes.

although in the end what ive tried to do is :


put the artists name in the Model field, which works and displays. But also i made manufaturers the years of release of the record eg 1960, 1961 etc


but the manufacturers doesnt appear in the product detail? maybe its not meant to but id prefer the user saw :


1. title (thats ok)

2. year of release (cant get this to show using manufacturers)

3. artist name (using model which is fine)

4. description (thats ok)

5. price (thats ok)


any ideas how to simply implement a year into it? or maybe just have to put it into the desctription.


btw i will also be making a program to update the site from OrangeCD format (dont know why im telling you that lol)
