Hi to all, basically what im trying to do is very important for my site...I want to add more descriptive content for my products/ailments...like if I have a category for asthma, I want to provide some information pertaining to asthma and then list the products for that particular ailment below that information...because when I try to add it regularly through the store it just bunches everything together....If any one knows how to do this PLEASE lend your assistance....Thanks in advance......

i don't think it's available out of the box unless you reword the "reviews" tool (which shouldn't be too hard, just edit the language files) - but if you actually use the reviews tool that would be a bit difficult.

 

otherwise you could easily do it by adding extra tables to the database for whatever category you wanted to do and do a sql call to pull that table if a link was clicked on for "more info"

 

OR simply use the link entry via the manufacturers module and point the link to an article. (probably the easiest)

renaming the language files is as "dumb" as it gets for beginning (i've done it a few times myself, before i discovered how to add tables and such.. and i still do it today, for simplicities sake.)

 

if my post confused you, you're probably better off installing one of the contributions. (jhande linked to 1 for you)

download a package that sounds most fitting to your needs and it'll take you step by step how to add the feature to the website.
