I'm trying to get the Add to cart button to appear on products that are Out of stock. I've already set the System->Configuration->Catalog->Inventory->Backorders=Allow Qty Below 0
My store previously did not allow back orders. If I add the following code:
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('addtocart') ?>
The Add to cart appears on products that are In Stock but does not appear on products that are Out of stock.
- Inventory > Stock Options > Display Out of Stock Products is set to YES
- Cleared all cache var/cache, var/session, restarted httpd
- Re-indexed all indexes
- Tried using default theme with same result
Still no success and as pointed out by Simon this is not a new problem. What I am having trouble understanding is why there would be the option(s) to Allow back orders and Allow stock level quantities to go bellow 0 and not have the Add to cart button.
I downloaded and installed the latest version of Magento, did a fresh installation, added 2 products, one with inventory (In stock) the other without (Out of stock) have set Allow Qty Bellow 0, Show products out of stock and the same problem.
Would appreciate an explanation and a solution to this problem.
