How to create Advanced Attributes for Cart Variants
« on: February 28, 2012, 22:25:17 pm »
Hi Everyone,
I must be missing something that's right under my nose so if someone could help me I'd really appreciate it.  I reviewed the documentation at 4.6.4 Product Variations and Attributes but can't figure it out. 

I created custom attributes and then created additional custom child attributes but when I add them to a product is shows as the Attributes Name then a drop down that offers one option of "No Additional Charge"

I'm on VM 2.0.2
Joomla 1.7

Thanks for your help!

Not surprising - that manual is clearly shown as being for VirtueMart 1.1

Since there doesn't seem to be any documentation for 2.0 I was hoping that something might carry forward from 1.1 OR someone would be kind enough  to help me out.

Do you have any suggestions?

I think you want the following: add multiple versions of your customer_fields to your product. In each added field you type the name of the item in the dropdown list. Save --> Refresh your page and here you go.
Or do you want something else?

OK.  I'm having the same problem.  I see no customer_fields on my project page.  Just how do you do this?  I'm about to start banging my head on the table, lol.
