It is possible to set up attributes to display a label and options to the user and then be able to extract different information in the backend.
To clarify, the User needs to see 'Chain Colour' with a dropdown showing, Black, White etc.
The items are custom made and all the attribute selections need to be sent to the manufacturer and the will need their part id, so a 'Chain' could be an 'ABC123' and their colour codes code be 'BK'. 'WH' etc.
Does anyone know of a plugin that can do this or if there needs to be a coded solution?
