In a previous post, I discussed the Configurable Colors Magento Extension. I just completed a new Extension that builds upon Configurable Colors – Configurable Products Utilities. The Configurable Products Utilities extension allows the store owner to easily create and delete configurable associated products in bulk. This tool was created for those who have grown weary of spending 15-30 minutes inputting the associated products for each configurable product. With this tool, creating these products can be completed in a matter of minutes – including the image uploads.
The Configurable Products Utilities extension also integrates the Configurable Colors extension that I created a few months ago. It enables the store owner to create color swatches for configurable products. Swatches can be made using HTML color names, Hex Values, Classes, or images. The Configurable Products Utilities extension also controls the display of the thumb and large images. The sizes for these images can be set in the Admin Panel. The Configurable Products Utilities extension also comes with an image zoom component. The size of the zoom image is also configurable.
The video below displays setting up and using the Configurable Products Utilities extension. The extension can be purchased on DevoutGeek.com. I’m working on a few more Magento extensions, so stay tuned.
