new to the forum. Awesome platform.
I am facing a rather dull situation, which after browsing the forum, I see that many people have been facing, tho I do not see a solution.
My shop is for clothing, I have only 1 product attribute Size. Since the site is for baby and children clothing, the Size attribute has 15 predefined values.
When I add a product, I want to only assign the values, which are available to this product, however this doesnt work as intended (at least in my mind). Say that the values are 1 to 15, if I add for a product values from 1 to 5 with their respective quantities (and yes i'm tracking inventory by quantity) options 6 to 15 are still available in the dropdown list, and can be ordered in infinite quantities.
As this is a very huge issue for me at the moment (this is stopping us from launching the project) I would really appreciate if you could give me some directions on how to mitigate this problem.
Thank you in advance!
You can just remove options 6 to 15 for that product if it isn't produced in those sizes. The predefined product attribute values just provide a quick way to add a set of values to a product but once they've been added there's no link back to the predefined values so changes to the product's attribute values occur independently.
Is there any solution for this in nopcommerce 4.0?
I'm facing the same issue and it would be nice to have this implemented out of the box. I'm using Track Inventory for Product Attributes and I created the "Size" attribute. I added only 1 attribute combination with let's say size 50 (with quantity 2). "Allow out of stock" was set to false. Still, all the other attribute options (sizes) are visible on the product detail page (in the drop down). Of course I cannot add them to the cart - there is Out of Stock message, however it's not user friendly to present sizes in the drop down that are actually not available.
In my opinion, the dropdown for size should be only showing available attribute options (those where Quantity is above 0) - at least when specific Nopcommerce configuration setting is enabled. Setting like "Hide out of stock attribute options in drop down".
It may be more complex for combinations involving multiple attributes, but in many cases we have only one attribute (like size/color) - for which it should be pretty easy to implement.
I see that many users reported similiar issues - eg. https://nopcommerce.codeplex.com/workitem/11907, https://www.nopcommerce.com/boards/t/28267/how-to-show-out-of-stock-in-dropdown-product-attribute-value-combinations-32.aspx?p=6.
Unfortunately the solution suggested in this thread doesn't address the reported issue.
Do we already have an elegant solution for this?
As I can see, there is nothing new in Nop 4.10 regarding this issue. Product that are out of stock are still showing on drop down menu.
How to solve this, does anybody know?
The best way to solve the problem is when you solve it by yourself :-)
Finally, we managed to force NopCommerce to show/hide Product Attributes Out of Stock before you select one.
That was very painful/annoying feature for those who track inventory by product attributes e.g. apparel stores.
Right now we did not create plugin for that yet, but if somebody need that possibility, feel free to contact me over PM.
It's possible in version 3.7?
