I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at Verisign as they probably could give you an answer..
Right, I haven't seen a contribution to pull this off either. Rather than listing all your colors as an option, maybe you should list separate products for each color. For instance, "Wool Scarf - Black", "Wool Scarf - Red", etc. Then you'll only have to deal with the options for that specific color. I did something like that with a t-shirt Verisign website that I put together a while back. Good luck...
That would be a very handy contribution for sure. There isn't one like it that I've seen either, I list mine pretty much the way Walt laid it out which is ok but can get a bit cumbersome when there's lots of products with lots of options...
Well yeh , to give you a better idea why I need this to happen,.
Its more about delivery zones rather then colors and sizes, so maybe there is another way around it perhaps..
For my entire store I use a table rate system based on zip code which works great..
However I have three items that have fixed delivery rates based on some certain things.
Metro = $70.
Outer Metro = $100.
Rural = $130.
Remote = $150.
However when you select Metro for example, it gives you a list of all suburbs that are classed as Metro, so that you cannot select Metro if you are not metro, you would have to then go to Outer Metro if you are not listed in Metro and find your suburb in there, main reason for this being the case and not using a standard table rate for these items it that we have a deal sorted with a freight company for fixed pricing to certain areas (areas may not just be suburbs but states etc:).
So basically I want the first delivery option to come up, then based off what they pick on the first option box, then the list of available suburbs, citys pops up on the next option..
Unless there is a delivery module which I can perform this on I cant think of any other way of doing this (consdiering that they might buy this item along with other items in my store also).
Thanks guys, appreciate the replies.
I have worked out a way to perform what I need, HOWEVER, is there a way to make an attribute"not required".
That is if colors red, blue and green are available, and sizes 10,12,14, that the customer can select color and not size, size and not color, both or neither ?!?.
This would fix my issues definately.
