I am having a little problem with a configurable product. The configurable product is a sofa with two attributes used to customize the sofa: fabric and color.
I created a new attribute set for Sofa and added those two attributes in an attribute group called Sofa Options.
I created a couple of simple products:
Sofa black velvet Sofa blue velvet Sofa red velvet Sofa black microsuede Sofa blue microsuede
And one configurable product sofa with all of those simple products as associated products.
Now when I go to the front end and I select color black for instance I would expect to see the fabric dropdown selectbox being populated with velvet and microsuede. However it only shows microsuede. The same problem when I select blue. I only see velvet in the fabric dropdown box.
I double-checked all the simple products for the color and fabric attributes and they are all set correctly. I also flushed the cache and re-indexed. Any ideas what could be causing this behavior?
Edit: Ooph, this is painful. Turns out those simple products had Status Disabled somehow. I still don't understand how I could have missed that and also unsure why they were set to Disabled to begin with, because I'm 100% sure that I did not disable them manually.
Anyway thanks for the suggestions and help.
