Adding and Managing Movies

Adding a Movie

Before adding your first movie, let’s get familiar with how movies genres, tags, and attributes work.

Movie Genres

Movie genres and tags work in much the same way as normal genres and tags you have when writing posts in WordPress. They can be created, edited, and selected at any time. This can be done when you first create a movie or come back and edit it or the genres/tag specifically.


These can be added per movie, or you can set up global attributes for the entire store to use (e.g., in layered navigation).
