Child Products

If I allocate a producer to a child product. Go to the product item page and click the show products button. The child products are not displayed in the product list. If I allocate a producer to a parent product the parent displays but the child does not.
Thanks

  • Paul, child products are not meant to be accessible via product list. That's what make them different from parent products. They can only be see from parent's page - as a list of variants of given item.
  • Ok understand. I am trying to solve the following problem. For example I have

    Product record = car dealer showroom with location details

    Producer = Ford the manufacturer of the cars

    Child products = the cars available for sale in the showroom.

    I need to be able to allow the end user to search by the Ford cars available for sale as well as being able to search for local car dealer by location.

    Should I be using child products or related items ?
  • Paul,

    I'm not sure that in the end you achieve satisfactory result, because here we're dealing with directories of two different types of products which should be connected together. And that's not something what the component has been made for.
    But as long as you are okay with the fact that both cars and dealers directories look similar to each other (that's the biggest obstacle I suppose) I would definitely try "related items" approach.
