error message: “value of attribute ‘size’ must be unique”

meaning what? im trying to create a configurable product, just like in the video tutorial. the only problem is that after i create 1 configurable product it seems i can’t use that attribute again? does this mean i have to create the a different (but same) attribute for each configurable item?

edit: nevermind, i seem to have found a problem with how it was configured in the product attribute settings in the backend, problem solved

the attribute has to be setup as not unique and global, if i remember correctly. this was a while ago.

The answer

1. If you get an error message that say Value of attribute ‘attribute’ must be unique. It only means that the attribute
(such as small, medium, and large) are already being used by another product.
Scroll down to where it says, “Super product attributes configuration” and click on “Reset Filter” button
You’ll see a bunch of products with the same attributes. For example, you may see
HapkidoGear Black T-Shirt-Small
- 106 HapkidoGear Black T-Shirt-Medium
- 107 HapkidoGear Black T-Shirt-Large
- 108 HapkidoGear Black T-Shirt-X Large,
- 109 HapkidoGear Black T-Shirt-XX Large
- 117 Cloth Knee Pads-X Small

Pay only attention to the last words (x small, Small, medium, large, x large)
Select the check boxes to the left of each row. You will see the size attributes appear on the area just above.

2. Click “Save and Continue” or “Save” (This is a must)
