Custom fields for blog posts

I was wondering if its possible to add extra custom fields in the back-office for blog posts. Would be nice to have an app available like Advanced Custom fields and be able to retrieve them through the api

    Hi @diederikeen,

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    Unfortunately we don't provide extra custom fields for blog/blog-post at the moment.

    Thanks Lucien, is it possible for categories?

    And why is it not available for blogs posts (and categories)? For products it's possible.

    The custom fields are only available for products. These are necessary to create variants without having a separate inventory or can be used to give the customer an extra option (for example; wrap product in gift paper).

    As it is not requested a lot to have this fields added to categories and/or blogs, we do not see the necessity for it at this moment. If you think this is a valuable addition to our system, please feel free to reach out to our Support, explain the additional value by adding this and ask if it is possible to make a feature request to measure the need for this.
