How to Create an Attribute Manually

Scenario

How do I manually re-create an attribute for an extension after I have deleted a corrupt attribute?

Solution

Before you can recreate an attribute you need to find the latest SQL install file for the the extension which is found under: appcodecommunityWebshopappsEXTENSTIONsqlEXTENSTION_setup

You then need to open the file and search for the attribute, when you have found the attribute then need to note down the attribute_code,frontend_input and the frontend_label

You then log into the Magento admin panel and navigate to “Manage Attributes” under Catalog -> Attributes -> Manage Attributes. In the top right, click on “Add New Attribute” you’re now on the Attribute edit page and Properties tab.

You then need to enter the Attribute Code,Catalog Input Type for Store Owner and set the the scope to global for the attribute. Next select Manage Label / Options and in admin enter the frontend_label here and select save attribute to recreate a missing/deleted attribute.
