Store Editor / Catalog Manager Variables

In the Yahoo! store editor, click "variables".  You will find a variable called "promo-variables". In this, you will see a list of 5 variables that may be used by the Promo Manager. By default, when we installed the Promo Manager, we added 5 custom variables called:


These 5 variables correspond with the 5 custom variables used throughout the Promo Manager Control Panel for identifying items or groups of items.

On each of your item pages, we added these 5 variables.  They may be used for creating groups or pools of items. For example, in "promo-var-1", you can enter the word "shirt" in all of shirts in your store.  Then when setting up a promotion, you can identify all shirts by stating that custom-variable-1 must equal "shirt".
