That’s a great extension and would definitely be useful if I was using configurable products, but—the more I read—it doesn’t seem like configurable products are the right solution.
The issue that may not have been clear in my first post is that we need to track inventory on the shirt designs because they are all made to order. So, tracking inventory on a design-shirt combination (as we would have to with configurable) wouldn’t solve our issue.
So, when someone orders a style-1, large, red, emblem-1 shirt—we want to discount inventory on (1) style-1, large, red shirts—to know when we need to order more “ style-1, large, red “ shirts from the supplier—and (2) emblem-1 prints—to know when we need to manufacture more of the “emblem-1” design.
I’ve been looking into bundling and modifying the page template to make it looks like I want it to.
I’ll post here if we come to any resolution on this. Any other ideas are welcomed!
