unless im missing something, wouldnt you just use the layered navigation to handle this?
Ok I just watched the layered navigation screencast which shows the demo store.
So when I make a category anchor, attributes (Price and Color) will show up (Design and Color in my example), but because they are attributes, I can’t browse through them, I can’t see all pink products nor all kitten design products (only those in the category I’m in) as I could with categories.
not 100% sure what ur trying to do here
do you have a website i could look at that has something similar to what ur trying to achieve?
Imagine if I do it with categories only, I have the main descriptive category which is apparel, then the Design and the Color categories and all items of the apparel category are assigned to subcategories of both Design and Color categories.
This way I can start browsing by any of the 3, but as it seems I will not be able to filter out.
On the other hand if I do Design and Color with attributes, I’ll be able to filter out but not browse, am I right ?
The other inconvenient of attributes (I think) is that they can’t be nested, so I’ll have a huge list showing up.
So perhaps the only solution is to have Design and color both has categories and attributes, but I find this stupid.
PS: I don’t have a website to show off, this is a new project.
