We would love to have the ability to place products with custom options under a grouped product. However, it looks like this isn’t possible. Whenever a product has CPO’s it doesn’t show up in the list of available products to add when creating a Grouped Product. Also if CPO’s are added to a product that is already grouped, it disappears from the Grouped Product’s frontend page. Is this just a feature that is yet to be implemented? Is there a technical reason for not allowing this to happen?
The only solution we can think to come up with is to write a custom product page modules that will scan the products for a certain sku naming convention and then display those on the product page. So we would have to have a main product like “widget” and then all the other products would be “widget_style_color”.
Is this our only way of putting products with CPO’s under a Grouped Product? Any other ideas welcomed.
