The Products List groups all of the products in your Loaded 7 store together in a manageable list. From here you can add, edit, copy 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.
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:
In Content, enter the name, description, permalink and meta tags for your product, as in Figure 4. Examples to explain each item:
To add Product Data, select the Data tab. You will see this page, as in Figure 5. Here you will enter information into the following fields:
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.
The Pricing tab lets you select the base price and determine other factors that might affect the price at different times or under certain conditions. See Figure 7 for an example of the Pricing tab.
To set up the correct pricing:
In this tab, Loaded 7 needs only a few characteristics about your product.
Supplier Characteristics are not supported in the CORE download.
This section lets you select which product category the product will be available in within your store. You can manage product categories inContent.
After you have chosen the category(s) that your product should be in, select Save to confirm your add.
