Just getting to grips with the Multi Variants in Vendr 1.5
Im using https://try.vendr.net/products/accessories/chillys-cup/ as a guide and the blog post.
When creating the - Multi-Variant Product Page this doesnt have a List View for Multi Variants, and is a child of - Product Page, that has a List View of Variants?
I cant seem to see the List View of Multi Variants to show up when i create a Multi-Variant Product Page?
When i create a Product Page, i can see the List View of Variants.
Does Vendr automagically create the Mulit Variants List View or do i create it? I cant see it on the demo site tho?
The variants content app should get created automatically for you whenever it finds a document type with a variants property defined on it that uses the new variants property editor.
We're having a few problems with our docs site at the moment so it's not been updated with 1.5.0 API changes, but you can find some more info in our RC blog post here https://vendr.net/blog/vendr-1-5-0-release-candidate/
Also, in case you are on an older version, given the variants prop editor is based on the Block List editor API, you'll need to make sure you are on Umbraco 8.10.1 minimum.
Yeh first thing I did was upgrade to 8.11.1 and then upgrade Vendr via nuget to 1.5.0
Like I say, I have created the Product Page with the content App List View to show Variants, I can create a variant on a product.
But when i go to create the Multi Product Page, the content App of Vairiants is not there?
Is there a way of manually adding this content app?
Hey Neil, no, there isn't a way to manually add it, and even if there was, that would just be a hack. The real answer is to work out why it's not showing.
What properties are defined on your Multi Product Page doc type?
Multi Product Page:
UGH... Think I've sussed it now Matt
I'm missing the - Vendr: Variants Editor Property Type off the Multi Product Page
I'll put it down to having a baby brain at the minute :)
Thanks bud, all sorted now!
No worries. Yea, I was going to say I'm not seeing the variants prop editor on your screenshots anywhere.
Glad you were able to figure it out 👍
Congrats on the little one 😁
Might be an odd question, but what exactly is the difference between a Product Page and a Multi-variant Page. Both pages seem to have the options to make variants.
One is using Umbraco nodes for each variant (usually best for only single attribute variants) where as the Multi-Variants editor stores the variants as a property value on the product node and has a UI that is much friendlier for multi-attribute variants.
You probably could do anything you can do in multi-variants editor with child nodes, it would just be a much more manual process. The mutli-variants editor is capable of generating variants for you based on the selection of product attributes (size, fit, color, etc).
Alright, got it. Thanks alot, also for the quick reply!
I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, I cant seem to open up another thread, and this is sort of a related question
When creating a "Product Page" in the demo store, I get a tab for variants, even though it does not have a variants picker on the document type. where does this come from? I have a simple structure, so I dont actually need attributes to auto-create variants from, but when I try it myself in my own shop, I get the tab "Variants" only when I use this variants picker (like the multi-variant product page). Multi variant picker and chosing attributes work well enough, but its overkill for this shop as the products are too different.
Ive been trying to figure this out in the demo store, but for the life of me I cant seem to figure it out. Our company is trying out Vendr for our first ecom store and we are a new to Umbraco aswell.
Is there some magic somewhere that adds this Variants tab on normal products, cause I dont see any Vendr specific properties that causes this on that doc type.
SOLVED IT! enabling list view was the trick - damn that stumped me for HOURS! setting off a couple of hours writing docs would be very beneficial, just for this basic stuff (how to make products, variations, attributes)
