Adding fields to admin insert and update pages
I have added some fields to the PowerStore database and have successfully integrated them into the public pages that people see. However, I want to add them to the insert and update pages in the admin interface.
They way I tried to add them to those forms was to copy an existing field (ProductName) by selecting everything inside of the <p></p> tag and pasting that below the ProductName paragraph. Then I replaced all the occurrences of ProductName with the custom field (ProductSubtitle) in the database. Visually it looks fine on the form but it doesn't update or insert the content when I try to modify a record.
Also, if that custom field holds content (from the database import I originally did) it shows up in the form on the update page, but I'm not able to actually make any changes stick.
So I realize this is probably not the preferred method to achieve what I'm trying to accomplish but I thought it would be the most accurate -- taking something that already works and copying and making slight modifications. Should that not work?
I've attached a couple of screen shots to better explain what I'm trying to do.
