My question is in two parts.
When you call
$product->getOptions(), does this mean Options is an attribute? For example, when you are trying to get the name or a custom attribute "custom_attribute" of a product, you will use:
Is this the same for options?? Are product options held in the options attribute? Is there even an options attribute??
What is the fastest way to get the options only? I need to parse through the options to see if an options exists and then print it out. This takes way to much time to load since I have to do this in a product list view. For example, when you only need a products name and image you can use collections to grab only the attributes you need using:
Can you do this with options?? As of right now I have to get the product id and then load the product to get the product options. This takes waaaayyyy too much time @_@. Urks my soul.
