Attribute Suggestion Needed


chriscknapp

Recommended Posts

I will be selling clothing items. For each item there is a set of color attributes and a set of size attributes.

 

Problem I am having is some colors only come in certain sizes.

 

So a shirt may come in three colors and each color has a different set of sizes available. I have just finished getting the AttributeSets_v5_5 contrib setup and realized this problem when I sat down to start entering products.

 

Any suggestions on best way to deal with this?

 

Is this clear, should I explain better?

 

Thanks!!!

Hello,

 

Thanks for the reply. I don't think that does what I need. Quantity isn't what I am after.

 

I'll try to explain here-

 

Product is a shirt

 

Drop down box of colors

Drop down box of sizes

 

If red is chosen as a color, only s, m and L are available

If blue is chosen, s, m. l, xl and 2XL are available

if brown is chosen, L, XL, 2XL and 3XL are available

 

With the default setup, a user could choose a red shirt in XL. I need the sizes options to change depending on which color is chosen...or vice versa.

 

Thank you.

what i did w/ my site www.500whp.com is that if i have different items w/ diffenet options ie

 

wheels

 

1st size 16x7 + 48mm offset 5-100 bolt pattern

2nd size 16x7 +35mm offset 5-114.3 bolt pattern

 

i will have 3 different drop boxes.

 

1 size drop down box 16x7, 16x7.5 etc

2. offset box +35mm +40 + 48mm

3. bolt pattern: 4-100, 4-114.3, 5-100, 5-114.3

 

But in the Discriptions put the different sizes w/ the different colors ex:

 

Small - Color Red, Yellow, Green

Med - Color Red, Black, Orange

Large - Color White, Blue, Sky Blue

With my site I am actually tending to stay away from attributes with new products I add.... I find it confuses the customer and some products are a little intricate like wheels as 500wph has experienced too!
