I am successfully using the options drop down list and such, however what I was asking was more so on is there a way based on "product" category to change the full detail layout - such as populate and different field types and 1 image versus 3 images. that sort of thing. This is demonstrated that is was done in the eCart old video where one of the shoes has two options fields and another only has one option field.
I don't think I previously expressed the scope of what I wanted to accomplish.
Thanks in advance.
