Creating a Configurable Product in magento

Posted on October 19th, 2012 | Posted by admin

Advanced products in Magento are a way to consolidate product variants onto a single product info page in the front-end. The variants themselves have their own SKUs and stock management. This is very powerful – it allows you to let customers search for the individual variants, but browse only to the consolidated product pages. (If that’s the implementation you want – you could also let customers browse the individual SKUs.)

Configurable Products let your customers select the variant they desire by choosing options. For example, you sell t-shirts in two colors and three sizes. You’d create the six variants as invidivual products (with their own skus) and then add these six to a configurable product from where customers can choose size and color, then add to cart. If desired you could also have customers search for “red medium t-shirt” and land on the specific page for this variant.

Different stores can be set in Magento. A product can be made visible in selected stores.

/**
* get store id
*/
$storeId = Mage::app()->getStore()->getId();
/**
* call the Magento catalog/product model
* set the current store ID
* load the product
*/
$product = Mage::getModel(‘catalog/product’)
->setStoreId($storeId)
->load($key);

One of our clients at the office had a store and the “wishlist” button in the product view wasn’t working.

The products he was trying to add weren’t in the root category.

You must add your products at least to the root category.
