adding attributes to products


Recommended Posts

Is there any problem with adding a new set of attributes to products after the site has gone live and orders have been placed?


Let's say I had a "size" attribute defined from the start and there are already orders placed. Now I want to add a "color" attribute.


Will this create problems?

No, no problems. You can even delete attributes without causing problems. That is why the orders_products_attributes table stores the name and value *strings* rather than the numeric IDs.




Always back up before making changes.
