Hi Guys,

I was wondering if anyone knows of the way to automatically remove the attributes from the Advanced Search when products associated with that attribute are out of stock.
What I’m looking for is preferrably cascading dropdown menus (the following depends on the previous selection) - perhaps built with Ajax - where we start with categories - once you’ve chosend the category you can see the list of dropdown menus with attributes associated with this product - similar thing there is in the product view when you are selecting - say Black colour - the menu underneath shows you automatically the available sizes in that colour - and if items are out of stock - the attributes are dissapearing as well.

Does anyone know the solution for it?

Also - for some reason - some of the Attributes, even thou they have Dropdown menu selected “Catalog Input Type for Store Owner” are showing in the Advanced Search as Multi select option - do you know how to change that so that it’s displayed as dropdown menu?

Any help would be appreciated.
