On configurable product page, how do I get the information or attributes assigned to current product based on the Simple product which I associated to configurable product.

So if I had a Tile with 3 Finishes on there, Natural, Gloss, Textured and all these finishes have a different description and attributes values assigned to them how would i bring it up based on a finish being selected.

I'm using Magento 1.9 so "Simple Configurable Products" plugin doesn't work.

I Ended up fixing this issue by using an extension known as

Amasty Colour Swatches Pro

The way we did it was by using the 'Additional Tabs' Tab in the Products page to show each individual attribute of a products and then combined with the colour swatch extension allows the data to change based on the filter selection.


Can you please share the code changes you've made to achieve this implementation? I've got these requirements and using the Amasty Color swatches pro extension.

Thanks in advance!

  • Thanks! Nits. But I don't want to use the SCP extension. I just want to show one attribute data based on the configurable product options selection. I'm already using the Amasty color swatches pro extension which is doing the same thing. I just want to add my custom attribute in tabs for simple products. Feb 6, 2017 at 13:30
