How to manage the product attributes/attributes sets in Magento?

We will show you in this tutorial how to add attributes to your Magento store in a few simple steps.

The first step is to login to the administrator back-end of the store:

If you have installed Magento under a subfolder of the www root folder for an example “store” you should add this directory name before the index.php.

Once  the back-end is completely rendered navigate to Catalog Attributes submenu:

You will see two extra menus showing:

Manage Attributes
Manage Attributes Set

This first menu is the one via which you are adding an attribute you would like to use. The process begins when you click on the “Add New Attribute” button at the top right corner of the page. All of the fields there are pretty much self-explanatory.

When you have created the new attribute you may proceed to the Attributes Set menu:

Here you may add a new set or add the attribute you create to an existing one. In this tutorial we will add the attribute to an existing set. This can be easily completed when you click on the set name:

Here the new attribute should be under the Unassigned Attributes section. You can just drag and drop it under the Group tab and place it on the location it should be showing with the rest of these.
