Add/Edit Products

The Products List groups all of the products in your Loaded 7 store together in a manageable list. From here you can addeditcopy and delete product entries. Below are steps to help you with all four actions.


 

Adding a new product is a necessary, fundamental action of Loaded 7. In this guide, we will show you how to do so. First, you will have to select Products, either in the Quick Navigation Bar along the left side of the Dashboard, or from within the green Admin User Panel in the lower right of the Dashboard.

 


Once you are in the Products List section, follow these steps to add a new product. 

  1. Select the Add New Product button, as in Figure 1.

  2. You will see the New Product page, as in Figure 2.

As you can see, there are 7 tabs, each needing certain information for each product that you add. Those tabs, as seen in Figure 3, are:


  • Content – name, description, permalink, and meta tags for the product.

  • Images – an image up-loader for the product in question.

  • Data – listing information on the product.

  • Options – allows for variations of a product.

  • Pricing – set up the price information of the product.

  • Shipping – setting up the shipping account information for each.

  • Relationships – determining which categories the product will be available.

  • Name – the brand name of the product, as in iPod Nano.

  • Description – the information that describes what the product is.

  • Permalink – this is a keyword unique to the product within your store database.

  • Tags – individual words that search engines use to list and find your product through the internet.

  • When you click the Select button, Loaded 7 will open your file manager allowing you to select the image you wish to use.

  • You can select and upload multiple images.

  • Depending on your screen size and resolution, you may have to scroll down slightly to add in the base price and decide whether the product is active or inactive.

Options


 

If the single product that you are entering has options, this is where that information can be entered. Follow Figure 6 as an example.

 


Before you can add a product option you have a to have already set up an option group. See Option Manager (below) to set up an option group.


If you have one or more option groups set up, you can assign the new product that you are adding to one of the the option groups in this tab. In the Simple Options part of Figure 6, you would see the option groups that you added and would be able to choose one for the product at this point.
