I am working on Ceramic website, and my Client want to display the Technical details of their products. The challenge is that each Technical specification has 2 values, additional information tab would displayed in 3 columns.


Characteristics    Standard Value   KIT Value

1) Dimension       + 0.5 %          + 0. %

2) Thickness       + 0.6 mm         + 0.2 mm

How do I create attribute and publish in product detail page in additional information tab? Or any other way?

Thank you in advance.

We encountered this problem before and found that creating a list with a comma or better a pipe (|) separating each item.

When you go to display your info on the frontend you can explode the list and format it anyway you want.

  • Thanks for the solution. But its difficult for my client to add a pipe/comma between 2 values, as they wont understand and except such manual intervention. Is it not possible to add attribute columns? Thanks.

  • You are using EAV so you could add attributes like this: dimensional_standard dimensional_kit thickness_standard thickness_kit Sep 2, 2014 at 19:12
