product Attributes issue

Recommended Posts

I am trying to add different product attributes for a particular product. Now, i was looking at the knowledge base on this subject and they speak about

editing the attributes tab for the product?

 

This is from the knowledge base...

 

"Products Attributes

Now, you are ready to start adding Attribute Groups and Attribute Values to your products.

Finally, select the product from the Catalog>Products menu in the Administrative Tool. Edit the product, and go to the "Attributes" tab"

 

 

Now, I dont if I am going crazy, but I dont have a attributes tab?

This, below is all I have on my catalog/product page?

Now the product in question is under my website www.nontando / Wood Carvings / Blackwood Candle Holder

 

 

THIS IS WHAT APPEARS AND WHAT i DID UNDER MY PRODUCT ATTRIBUTES SECTION....

So I preuming the info in the knowledge base is wrong and outdated as product attributes is not part of the product edit but a different section, yet I guess they are tied together by the product name? But as you can see I am still doing something wrong as it should be 8" $35. 10" $45, 12" $55

Also, if you go to my website, and select the other sizes, it does change or update anything?

I aplogize for the longwinded here, but if I am suppose to have an attributes option on my product edit screen, then where is it??

Thanks, Gary

The knowledgebase is for the new upcomming version of oscommerce and as such is not entirely similar with the looks and functions of the current osCommerce version.

 

 

Attributes are added in admin under catalog >> product attributes

 

If you add + or - prices for attributes , In your catalog/shop side the price of the product will only show this +/- amount after a attribute has been selected AND the product has been added to the shopping cart ... then the new price with the +/- attribute price calculated will show in the shopping cart...

Thanks Nick,

So if I understand you correctly, then I would set it up with my defaut being the 10" at $45

In my product attributes, I would have

Value price would be $10 and prefix would be - (for the 8" $35)

Value Price would be $10 and prefix would be + (for the 12" $55)

 

Okay, just tested it and it worked. I guess one needs to probably note this to the customer that is will only be reflected in the shopping cart...

as when they select another option besides the default nothing is reflected .

Thks again'

Gary

You can get it to display the actual price in the pull down menu of the product -

Original Product = 10" $45

 

Attributes pull-down =

8" $35

12" $55

 

See my example here - Aluminum Paint

 

Use this contribution - Actual Price in Pull Down Option Menu

 

I believe I updated to the 1.2.3a version.
