How to set up several child product with working stock control in virtuemart 2?


There is two way to get working the child product with stock control in vm2.


A.) The first way is the "stockable variant" "plug-ins" custom field. That has a big center error. We try to figure out how can we modify the virtuemart core files, but its not easy. So we found another way to get working the stock control.


B.) The "generic child variant" method allow You to make child product with stock control. Only different is from the first method to reload the page on every choose. But we think its not a very big thing.


You can set up this child product with stock control. Please follow these steps:


1. Login to virtuemart.

2. Go to the components/ virtuemart / products / custom fields

3. The "Custom Field Type" is "Generic Child Variant"
