Multivariant question
« on: August 17, 2017, 00:49:26 am »
First Thank you to all the VM Developers I don't know how you answer so many questions and still have time to code..

I made a mistake in my approach to the product design and could use some advice.

My Problem:
I used multivariant and pricing and options are awesome but I just realized that when you change the options of the multivariant it loads the title and image of the child.
I wanted to use the parent to have all of the pricing and then have 200 children inheriting the parents multivariant custom field for the pricing.

No inventory is necessary.

Example: needs fixed pricing = to. (not + and/or -)

Keller Williams - product one (needs it's unique image)
  6mm PVC
    12x18|=30.50
    18x24|=38.50

 .090 Polystyrene
    12x18|=30.50
    18x24|=38.50

Century 21 - product two (needs it's unique image)
  6mm PVC
    12x18|=30.50
    18x24|=38.50

 .090 Polystyrene
    12x18|=30.50
    18x24|=38.50

Joomla 3.7
VirtueMart 3.2.2
php7

Any advice is appreciated.

If you don't need any stock and size check for shipping, you can use a customfield string and option "is a list", you don't need to use generic variant or multi variant at all.
If you need to display for eg.
 6mm PVC and .090 Polystyrene at same time, then you need to use a generic variant and two chilt and use a customfield string and option "is a list" to render the sizes

Thank you for the response. I didn't get an email response from forum or I would have replied sooner.
With "customfield string and option "is a list"" can you use pricing "=" for pricing or needs to be + and/or - ?
I attached an xls with what I did for multivariant import. It might make more sense or help someone else.

Thank you again!
