Here is my problem.

I have a Magento website (CE selling radiators. Each radiator is available in various sizes and the heat output etc is different for each size. When a size is selected via the configurable product I would like to show certain attributes for this size (simple product) in the description area.

I have a module setup (Best4Mage Configurable Products Simple Prices) that changes the description when a simple (size) is selected. I have edited my description.phtml code to the below (which includes a single attribute currently) but when the description changes (upon selection of a specific size) the attributes disappear:


$product_id = Mage::registry('current_product')->getId();
$attribute = $_product->getResource()->getAttribute('reina_type');
if ($attribute)
    echo $attribute_value = $attribute ->getFrontend()->getValue($_product);

getProduct()->getDescription(); ?>

    __('Product Information') ?>

        helper('catalog/output')->productAttribute($this->getProduct(), $_description, 'description') ?>
        Material: getAttributeText('reina_type'); ?>
