Manage Stock on Configurable Items (problem)

Hi there,

After having created a configurable product ( a shoe) and quick creating a couple of simple products to attach to it (shoe sizes) each with their own inventory, I seem to have run into a problem.

When I order a size 11 for example, I see that the simple product size 11’s quantity does not decrease, but my configurable product goes from quantity 0 to 1??

I have everything set right, manage stock enabled etc etc.

Am I missing something?

Stock does decrease when I just create a simple product though.

thanks in advance, need some help fast!

So your stock increases when you sell! What version are you on?

Wasn’t that fixed in 1.1.2?

Im on 1.1.2, but I had the same problem on 1.1.1

also when I add simple products with quick create, I get an error message sometimes saying the sku cant be the same or something like that, even though its on autogenerate.

I then type something else in there, and then the quick create works again.

When creating a configurable, what sku do you have to fill in?

does that have anything to do with it?

Im on 1.1.3 now. When I place an order for a configurable product, and I cancel my order before the payment process, the configurable products stock goes up to 1, and the simple product attached goes down 1.

Even though Ive cancelled the order, the product is not placed back in stock even though I have selected the manage stock and place back in stock when cancelled options in the backend.

Why does the configurable stock go up 1 anyway? You cant edit inventory on a config product.
