Hi, I am trying to make a headwear website.

My configurable product is differnet colors of a certain hat style.

I realized shop by color does not show if it is set up as configurable products and not single products.

Anyway to make it show up if it is a configurable option?

The version doesn’t matter - a configurable product is the way to go.

@TheBuzzer: Are you configuring your attributes and products accordingly to the user guide?

I would reccomend you to go over chapter 3 you will find it helpful winkhttp://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/welcome_to_the_magento_user_s_guide/chapter_3

seems to be a version issue.
i have the same problems in 1.1.3.: attributes like COLOR in layered navigation are only shown for simple products, not for configurable products.
in 1.0. there was no problem at all.

Same issue, and it applies to any attribute in layered navigation. If i make the simple product listings appear in the catalog, they show up in filtered navigation, but the configured product doesn’t appear. when i set the simple products to show nowhere, the layerd nav appears empty.

I am very frustrated at this point, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

this is on 1.1.6

This appears to be related to inventory quantity. once i turned back on the inventory control, set quantity for all the simple products, and set them to “in stock” the configurable products begin appearing properly in the layered navigation.
