Shoe Sizes
« on: May 10, 2021, 19:15:57 pm »
I have some stock of shoes arriving tomorrow.

I have never really dealt with product variants and only needed to create child products on a few occasions - perhaps if one product was available in two different colours.

What is the best way to go about adding a shoe, with different sizes.

Each colour would be a product of it's own. So I don't plan to list these as seperate variants.

I like how this website does it. You can select the size, then it shows you if it's in stock or if there's a lead time.

Anyone know of a plugin that can do this?

Nice,

but I prefer customfield4all and stockable, because I need use filtering and searching ( I think our customers too)
not only creating variant by plugin.

Also with my plugin you can use vm search by size and color. And all this using virtuemart core functions.

Thanks. Where do I see customfield4all - or is that the breakdesigns demo?

I had a look at the second link you posted. looks good.

one this page for example - https://www.archivbox.cz/archive-box-a4-110-colour-r003

are those colour options all added as child products, or how do you build your products?

you can try https://shop.ilabsolutions.it

A litte video show you how it works

https://player.vimeo.com/video/545565986?portrait=0

I had a very quick look at your video. I will look properly later when I have more time.

it looks really good.

So - your system creates the child products / variants based on the options you enter?

I like how your plugin creates seems to create all the child products as needed. https://shop.ilabsolutions.it
is that what it is doing - creating the child products?
I don't see it listed on virtuemart extensions directory.

this one has a lot of good reviews. https://demo.breakdesigns.net/apparel/t-shirts/men-s-sport-t-shirt-detail
but I can't see if it has that feature to create the child products

I had another look at the video.
This extensions looks so quick and easy to add the sizes, colours etc

https://player.vimeo.com/video/545565986?portrait=0

I can't find much info on how this process works with custom fields for all.

Can you tell me more about how your extension allows people to search?
I like the way Custom Filters allows people to filter by size and color.

It uses standard string cf to store data about size and color. So you can find it in VM natural search. I have to make a demo (it's coming soon) but if you want we can talk about it in pm.
