Sorry if this is a rehash, but I can't find the exact answer to my problem.
I'm looking to display the contents of a custom text field just under the product name on the category page grid.
I have done the following for another custom attribute in list.phtml, and this works:
<p><?php echo $_product->getAttributeText('plug_or_plant') ?></p>
But it only seems to work on attributes that are dropdown lists. Does anybody know what changes I have to make to get it to display a text field?
