How to add custom field/attribute in magento category?

Add custom Field/attribute to category using script in magento
$setup = new Mage_Eav_Model_Entity_Setup(‘core_setup’);
// below code will add text attribute
$setup->addAttribute(‘catalog_category’, ‘attribute_code’, array(
‘group’         => ‘General’,
‘input’         => ‘text’,
‘type’          => ‘varchar’,
‘label’         => ‘Attribute label’,
‘backend’       => ”,
‘visible’       => 1,
‘required’      => 0,
‘user_defined’ => 1,
‘global’        => Mage_Catalog_Model_Resource_Eav_Attribute::SCOPE_GLOBAL,
));

// below code will add yes/no attribute

$setup->addAttribute(‘catalog_category’, ‘attribute_code’,  array(
‘type’     => ‘int’,
‘label’    => ‘Attribute label’,
‘input’    => ‘select’,
‘source’   => ‘eav/entity_attribute_source_boolean’,
‘global’   => Mage_Catalog_Model_Resource_Eav_Attribute::SCOPE_STORE,
‘required’ => false,
‘default’  => 1,
‘user_defined’  => 1,
‘default’  => 0
));

// below code will use to add image attribute

$setup->addAttribute(‘catalog_category’, ‘attribute_code’,  array(
‘group’         => ‘General’,
‘type’     => ‘varchar’,
‘label’    => ‘Attribute Label’,
‘input’    => ‘image’,
‘source’   => ‘eav/entity_attribute_source_boolean’,
‘global’        => Mage_Catalog_Model_Resource_Eav_Attribute::SCOPE_GLOBAL,
‘required’ => false,
‘backend’ => ‘catalog/category_attribute_backend_image’,
‘frontend_input’ =>”,
‘default’  => 1,
‘visible’       => 1,
‘user_defined’  => 1,
));

 

‘attribute_code’ will be replace with your own attribute code and same way ‘Attribute Label’ will be replace with attribute label.

Once you execute above script, it will automatically creates attribute.
