As an example, our shop has many bags. Some bags are the same model with colour variations:
- Bag A - Blue
- Bag A - Red
- Bag A - Black
On the product ‘view’ for each bag, we would like a simple text chooser that lets you pick the colour, and it should go to that simple product’s view:
Blue / Red / Black
I thought the best way to do this is to create a configurable product ‘Bag A - Configurable’ which is not visible in the catalog view, and associate all ‘Bag A’ Simple Product items with it. (We would like each bag in its separate colours to be displayed as unique items in the catalog)
The question is then, how, when viewing the simple product, eg: ‘Bag A - Blue’, how do I find this products associated items?
Is this not possible? After much research, I\\\’ve found people suggesting
which returns nothing.
Ideally, in pseudocode, I would be in a simple product view:
1. Get the associated products
2. For each associated product, get the colour attribute
3. Link this colour attribute to the simple product view
Any pointers/direction greatly appreciated!
