Adding product creation date

///Adding product creation date

The tip was posted on our forum by @zimmer-media at you can view the whole thread here.

Adding this change to your site is pretty easy. All you will have to do is add an override to the location¬†override/controllers/admin/templates/products the products directory might not exist on your standard installation, if it does not, just add the directory manually. Then you can copy the Gist at the bottom of the page to the location. The file’s name needs to be informations.tpl

This file will add this field in the image below to the back office product page so you can adjust the creation date of the product in your shop.
