Can you give a better description of exactly what you want to do and then someone can reply with a step-by-step solution for you.

If it is just that you want to add a custom field (say Full_Description) and have it show up in the detailed page, this is what I would do:

Go to Database in your admin panel.

Select Links->Properties.

Click 'Add Column' at the bottom of the page.

Put the entries in as:


Column_Name => Full_Description

Column_Type => Text

Column_Index => None

Form_Display => Full_Description

Form_Type => TextArea

Form_Size => 60,4

Search_Weight => 1


and leave all the other fields as they are. You may need to change these for the type of column you want to add - you'll need to read the documentation to find out more about these or ask here.

Once you've added the field, click on 'Resync database'.

Then, to add the field to your detailed page, just go to your detailed page template and add the tag

<%Full_Description%>

where you want the data to appear. You may want to put some <%if ...%> tags around it to only show for certain values etc.

Hope that helps,

Laura.
