On a catalog of over 12 thousand products, I would have to insert about 500 products which are:
- steel tables,
- hoods tables
- and other things in steel, which therefore have various sizes.
The logic is:
Configurable Product -> Associated Products.
In choosing the super attribute, since it is impossible to insert an entry in the new super attribute for each variant since I would be with more than 5000 different values in that attribute I had thought to create this super attribute called: "model" and give it as values :
Variant 2 etc.
Make a change to the block that prints the selection input so that it lacks the Label from the product name and not from the superattribute value
(Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_View_Type_Configurable::getJsonConfig)(otherwise it would be: "Variant N")
Is this an approach used ?
Do you have experience in similar cases?
