I have a configurable product setup which has single products as colours, however I now wish to add a new attribute (e.g. size) to the product. I know that when you create a new product and select Configurable Product it lets you choose the attributes to associate, however I can't see an option to add more to an existing product.


Simple answer: You can't add additional "super" attributes later.

But: You can add it in the database. Have a look at the database table "catalog_product_super_attribute". If you know the product ID and the attribute ID (you can get them from the URLs when editing the specific product / attribute), you can add a new row there directly.

  • Ahhh that's disappointing but I can do it from the database I suppose. Thank you very much for responding. – user3711642 Nov 5 '14 at 14:20
