I recently ran into a problem with a store, when I started noticing certain stock notification e-mails weren't being sent. All of the e-mails for simple products are fine, but when it comes to configurable products, here's my problem:
Right now, customers are able to sign up for the stock notification e-mails. The cron job runs fine, and system logically only sends them when they're actually in stock and not set to 0. The configurable products are however, always set to 0, and the simple products that belong to this configurable do the stock changing. So what happens now is, people are only able to subscribe to a product when ALL of the sizes are out of stock (so not even able to select a size they wish to receive information about), but then when the shoes for example get restocked, they don't receive a notification because the configurable (which is the product they subscribed to) is still at 0.
I'm sure I'm not the first person to run into this problem, so I was wondering if anyone has been able to work around it or find a solution?
