How to create a new attribute and put it in the product creation form as custom field?

It may be that I am calling it wrong, may be it's not an attribute but a product feature or characteristic.

The idea is to have an additional field, like the log description or the short description.

  • This does not do what I need. I need it to be on the product creation form or "catalog_product/new" under the "General" tag. Thanks! – Supersonic Jul 21 '15 at 16:23

  • I've seen this tutorial, but thanks! That's not what I need. I need an additionnal text area as the product log or short description, at the same place these descriptions. – Supersonic Jul 21 '15 at 16:37
