Size: ( 28 - 42 ) 14 options
Color: ( white, brown, black) 3 options
Attribute Set: Shorts
Product Type: Configurable
Select Configurable Attributes:
Color, Waist, Gender, Manufacture - 4 options
When using Quick Simple Product Creation
Color, Waist, Gender, Manufacture - Do not carry Over ( I have to enter these options every single time! x 42 times minimum )
Weight, Status, Visibility, Quantity, Stock Availability - Carry Over
Why can it not auto-generate ( I have to make this all individually )
billabong-shorts-a-White-28 - billabong-shorts-a-White-42
Better yet why can`t we simply have a sliding scale for each product
28 - 42 without creating an additional 14 product entries for one size range
I noticed the numbers and words listed in Attributes are random ( rather than alphabetical or numerical )
Green is before Brown.....
42 is before 29.....
Unable to add Manufacture to Configurable Item
You have to add it to each Simple Product x 42
Rather than adding it once to the Configurable Product Settings
So ultimately this open source ecommerce package is an administrative nightmare. Taking upwards of two hours to add a product with attribute like waist size, color, gender, and manufacturer. Its great from a users perspective however its broken from an administrators perspective. 84 products items to represent ONE actual product.
The worst part I can`t believe how any of these bugs made it past BETA
