Default Product Sizes / Colors

I often notice when I'm importing products into a store, the merchant has the same picture set up for one product a million times. The description will be different: different sizes, different colors, but the picture is exactly the same.

This means when I import all the products, the page on my website looks like the same product 100 times- not ideal.

So- is there a way to have a set up where it's: One product/picture > drop down (or links below showing other available) colors, sizes etc?

Hope I'm making sense.

thanks.

Hi,

It's not possible to have 1 product with many attributes (ie. the drop down you are referring to) however it is possible to prevent products that share the same image URL to be imported many times.

Use the Duplicates filter:

Thanks. I'm familiar with that exclude by image. I wish there was another option here. I either limit products in my store (1 product x 10 different colors technically= 10 separate products) or have the store look, to someone not looking carefully at least, like there are tons of duplications.

Hmmm....think on this I will

Hi,

It's a little tricky. You need to know the product IDs of those products and do some PHP like this (where 1234567890 is the product ID):

PHP Code:
<?php 
if ($product->id == 1234567890) : ?>
<a href="[product.url]">See more colors</a>
<?php endif; ?>
You can put that in your Product detail module on your Product Details view.
