Please excuse any misunderstandings or assumptions in my post (I'm pretty new to Wix)
Whilst I totally understand why some fields within the Store table structure would need to be mandatory (to ensure that the Store code operates correctly), I'm wondering why a store owner does not have permission to add there own fields to Store tables. (More on why I want to do this later).
I see that it is possible to include 'Options' (for size, color etc) but as far as I can see these need to be set as an option for each product. If all my products have a choice of size and color then would it not be simpler to add size and color fields to the table so that they can be queried directly ?
OK here's my real world scenario.. I sell T-shirts and have mock-ups of each design modelled by both a man and a woman. An entry point to the site would be 'show me mens' or 'show me womans', such that I can filter the dataset of the store gallery to display clothing for only the chosen gender. My instinct tells me to put a Gender field in the store Items table but that's not allowed. Am I missing something really obvious ? Let me know your thoughts. Thanks. Mat
