Each product creates dozen rows in attribute table!

Help!

 

I'm testing out my OS Commerce 2.2-M2 installation for a t-shirt shop. So far, I've set up one design/shirt combination as a Product, with the shirt being available in 3 colors and 8 sizes (Product Options are set up as Color and Size, with Option Values being Color (Black, White, Green) and Size (S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X). However, the problem is that in the Product Attributes table, I now have 11 rows of data! - one for each color and size option. Way too inefficient and time-consuming. And that's just one product!

 

What's a better way to go about setting up a shirt shop? I'm going to have dozens of designs available on a variety of shirt types (tees, ringers, hoodies, etc.) -- available in several colors and sizes. I do NOT think I should be entering 11 or more rows in the attribute table for EVERY combination of Design & Shirt type, so hopefully I'm just missing something here...? :huh:

 

Is there a way to bulk load products? Or perhaps my products should be either the Design OR the Shirt type, but not the combination of both? Please help this newb!

 

Thanks,

William

1. Ajax Attributes Manager - doesn't solve the number of entries on the page, but makes setting them up a lot easier in amdin

2. QT Pro (Quantity Tracking Professional) - allows oyu to track stock by their attributes.

Hi, thanks for the suggestions. :)

Currently, I'm looking at toasty's Attributes_Sets contribution. My first attempt to install a contribution. I'm discovering what a pain iPower's vdeck admin interface is, since I can only copy one file at a time...

 

Anyway, I think the Attributes_Sets may do what I'm wanting, as it should allow me to set multiple attributes to a product at once, instead of the godawful one-at-a-time approach that, for some reason, appears to be the standard modus operandi in OSC...

 

I'll take a look at Ajax, too. That sounds similar, perhaps.
