There are so many fields in the admin 'add products' area that it is often hard to make quick updates. Try this little image trick to make your admin life easier:

In Shop$Language_english go through your LangLangProduct fields and change this line:

BEFORE:
LangProductImage" Image: "

AFTER:
LangProductImage="<img src='yourimage.gif' width='46' height='27'> Image: "

This will put a nice little icon to the left of your fields. I decided to put a little eyeball image to the left of all of my image fields, and a large dollar sign next to my price fields.

HELP! There is one issue with this. The admin area and the shopping cart share the same fields, so when you put a cute image in your admin area it might not be appropriate when it shows up in your shopping cart. Anyone have a suggestion to solve this problem??

Not everything can be made configurable but the shopa_add_product.asp file is easily modified with a little ASP knowledge.

Fields can be commented out (to stop displaying) or easily moved around to suit your data entry style.

Thanks Howard,

I think I have it. For anyone who needs a start read this:

To change the order of your fields in the product table open shopa_addproduct.asp and do a search for the word "PCreateRow"
You should find a large section with many lines starting with this. Most lines here represent a field. Simply swap these lines around to change the order of your fields or put a "'" (comment out) in front of a line to hide the field. This seems to work for me :)

Cheers,

Fraser
