Hello!

I want to implement multiple-value parameters. Let me explain: on the goods page I can choose only one value for each parameter, but in my case it is reasonable to assign multiple values (2 or 3 from the same scope). The type of parameter is 'extended'.

Please tell me if it is possible. May be someone had such experience?

Thanks

In fact I have the same trouble and never get any answer. Perhaps it's not possible :/
The only way I found to have multiple values is to use the multiple choice option.

Actually it is not a bad solution: I found that when you first create and edit parameter values as 'extended' (you can add text, foto, url, etc for each) and after that you change parameter type to multiple choice option, additional information does not disappear! :grin: So you can still use values as if they are of 'extended' type (for instance the foto and description are still showed on the page for specific parameter value).

Yes you're right. Perhaps it suits your needs but I was looking to use the field for actors for DVD for example. This solution works well when you have small amount of values in the field, but imagine when you have hundreeds...
