Attributes are comprised of Attribute Details and an Attribute Type.

  • Attribute Details are the actual descriptive bits of information which are associated to Products, media asset, or Categories.
  • Attribute Types determines how Multifront should use this information. For instance, Attributes can be used to create configurable products, a Multiselect list, plain simple text, etc..
