Is it possible to add attributes to products in Virtuemart 3?

For example, a pizza would have an attribute could "Extra Topping". The user can choose what topping they want from a drop down list, such as "extra cheese" or "peppers".

This was possible in Virtuemart 1, so is it possible in VM3?

I'm reasonably sure that the newer VM uses Custom Fields to create Product Attributes. I haven't done it myself with VM3, but How to create the VM custom fields walks through it pretty well.

  • I've worked out how to do them individually. However I want to know how to do them in bulk. On VM1 I went into the database and copy and pasted the code. However on this one all fields are stored seperately and look like it will take a long time as I will be entering sometimes over 100 attributes.
