Configurable options not showing up?

For some reason - I have my guess on why - there aren’t any configurable options showing up on the product page. I think something might be missing since there’s no code there that would show each option. This is from the default template by the way…

<?foreach($this->getAllowAttributes() as $_attribute):?>
        
<tr>
            <
td class="label">
                
<?=$_attribute['label']?>:
            </
td>
            <
td>
                <
select name="super_attribute[<?=$_attribute['attribute_id']?>]" id="attribute<?=$_attribute['attribute_id']?>" class="required-entry super-attribute select super-attribute-select">
                    <
option><?=$this->__('Choose an Option...')?></option>
                </
select>
            </
td>
        </
tr>
    
<?endforeach;?>

Any thoughts?

Configurable products work for me (although I do have some complaints about the procedure for setting them up).

Follow the tutorial for creating configurable products carefully and it should work:
http://www.magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base/entry/tutorial-creating-a-configurable-product
(only one thing - at the moment there is a bug with duplicating products, so don’t use duplicated products when setting up a configurable one.)

I don’t think it’s a template/theme issue, but apologies if I have misunderstood your question.

Thanks for your reply; I did in fact duplicate the products. I’ll have to try it without using the duplicate button.
