Adding and Editing Attributes in Magento

Attributes are mostly used for the filters (layered navigation) on the left-hand side of the category pages.

Another use is for configured products to, for example, add a “size” that needs to be chosen by the customer when adding the product to the shopping cart.

The adding or editing of attributes in Magento is done via:
Admin → Catalogue → Manage Attributes.

When you created an attribute in Magento you shouldn’t forget to configure the right attribute set (often default). Otherwise the attribute is not shown in the admin panel while creating a product.
