I’m having a bit of a problem setting up a configurable product based on several simple products. Everything was going well until I got to around 15 simple products. Once I exceeded that I encountered some odd behaviour:
Initially I got a 500 internal server error, I found a solution on the forums which said to de-associate the simple products and then re-associate them. This initially worked but then the following things happened:
I only had half the simple products associated
Some of the ones that were associated had no prices assigned
I assigned prices and then re-associated them, then couldn’t display the page
I then lost all the associated simple products from the dropdown list
Each time I de-associate and re-associate the simple products I get one or more of the above occur, I can never seem to get all them displayed as they should be. I currently have 39 simple products to associate, but will have another 200 or so before i finish!
My site is hosted by 1 and 1 but I don’t think the problem is with them.
I’m not sure if this is a bug or something I am doing wrong! Does anyone have any suggestions?
Is there a better, faster way of doing this, maybe by entering the details into a spreadsheet and then somehow importing that into the database?
