Add another configurable attribute

Hi there…
How can I add another configurable option to an existing configurable product.
For example - the clogs currently have gender and size as configurable attributes.. I have now added another clog with a different color - so I wish to make color configurable as well. I don’t see the option to add this in the admin.

Of course, I could always create another configurable product and add the options - but obviously this is not practical for a number of different reasons.
Does someone know how to do this in the admin - if not how can I add it in the database?

Cheers
Adam

Currently you cannot add another attribute to a configurable product… you would have to add color to the attribute set, then recreate the configurable product.  This is a known issue, and definitely needs to be resolved - otherwise data entry will be a nightmare.

Unfortunately i don’t know how to add it to the database - hopefully someone else can answer this
