We are planning a new feature to allow the users to define their own column data for products.

All configuration will be stored in .ini files, containing the column name, data type, default values, limits, displaying preferences, editing preferences. The user will be able to enable or disable individual column groups.

So, for example, users of derived versios of osCommerce will be able to add their columns and then the application will display the columns and allow editing or grouped operations on them.

Pending to finish design.

This feature should allow for support-detection. For example, if the user wants to support the fields from the Header Tags extension, he/she should be able to ask the application to detect the support for the extension.

There are two ways to do it:
a) User-defined. The used should define what field at which table or what text at what file to look for to enable the extra fields.

b) Automatic. The application should check for the extra fields when connecting, automatically.

I think the second option (automatic) will be the preferred one.
