Does anyone know how to add an attribute (type: text) to a product ?
I'm using woocommerce version 1.5.1
Under the products menu, if you create an new attribute, type: text, which has a nice explanation of how a text attribute is used and this is exactly how I want to use it.
However, when you attempt to use that attribute on the Variations tab while editing a variable product, for some reason it expects you add values, so it seems to be incorrectly treating a text attribute as a select. If you dont enter any value, the attribute is simply not added when you update the product.
I know there is a woo extension that can be bought to extend these attributes, but I cannot see why that would be needed considering the text attribute exists and should work as described.
Also, if I look in the tempate file ../templates/single-product/add-to-cart/variable.php
there is not even any code defined to handle an input text field, unless I am looking in the wrong place?
Any help would be appreciated thanks.
