Cutline is a second line for additional information

How to setup

The first step is to add or define a new product metafield. This is a custom metafield you'll create the Settings of your Shopify Admin.

Add a new product metafield

To set up a Cutline, you need to define (create) a new, custom, metafield definition that Broadcast can recognize.
The most important part is to use this namespace and key: theme.cutline
Verify the namespace and key are changed to theme.cutline

How to create the metafield

To start, navigate to your Shopify Admin -> Settings and choose Metafields from the left panel. Next, click on Products (click images to zoom):
Under 'Metafields', click on 'Products'
Click on the 'Add definition' button
Click the Add definition button to begin. Choose a name, we'll use 'cutline'. Next, we will use a custom namespace. This is required.
A crucial step here is to change the default namespace (usually called 'custom') to theme
Namespace.key = theme.cutline
Add a description (this is optional) then choose Select content type. Next, choose Text and use Single line text and One value (it's the default option):
Your definition is ready, press the Save button to complete.

Product setup

Now that our custom metafield has been defined, the final step is to edit any of your products in the Shopify Admin -> Products and update the new cutline metafield.
All you need to do is scroll to the bottom of the product setup page and fill them in:
After adding the cutline metafield value, press the Save button to save the product changes.
Now you're ready to preview the cutline text. View on a collection page or any section that uses the product grid layout:
Preview your unique cutline text on a Collection page
Your cutline text will only appear for this product. You can now add unique cutline text to any product in your store. If a product does not have the cutline metafield text information added, nothing will appear. Only products with a value for the cutline metafield will display that information on a product-gird or collection page.
Add your unique cutline information for all/any products that require the cutline information displayed on collection pages and product-grid sections.
