It seems more fitting to compare SUN Microsystems and PrestaShop. That seems to be closer to the route they took before they went downhill.
I see the solution that is available in Thirty Bees and it is similar when using combinations under Standard Products. This process is not the same however as the Magento Bundle Products. After messing around with it more, I see that the Product Pack is not the correct solution. There needs to be a search feature just like the Product Pack has so we don’t have to go through the process of adding the SKU individually after picking the attributes. Not really sure why it forces 1 reference number rather than allowing you to either type out the individual SKU or select from a list for each individual product in the attribute set. It is useless to only allow the attribute names to be generated with 1 SKU for the entire product bundle.
Currently, I can only add 1 Product Reference to each set of generated combination of products. That does me no good. If I could at least add the SKU of each product to the generated combination of products, I could possibly use csv to make my lists and import, but the single Reference code is useless. How am I supposed to know which of my thousands of products go to which computer?
Back end - you make an attribute (like CPU) -> add multiple products by selecting from a list with a checkbox; add another attribute (like Memory) -> add multiple products by selecting from a list with a checkbox, etc., etc. all from the same place and then click save.
Front end - customer goes to product page and selects 1 product from each attribute set under that particular product and the price gets adjusted and the SKU for all the products (not just a single SKU as a set) that were selected in each attribute is also sent in the backend to my email so that I know which products to include in the bundle.
Also, (and this is not an attack on you) you can’t deny progress just because you are afraid it will break something. I get it, it takes work, it takes testing, it requires time and money. Nobody is saying give it to me now. Also, if someone could make a module for that, I would buy it. Maybe there is a solution like what I am looking for and I don’t see it. Time is money and no one that uses the Magento Bundle will think otherwise and will just move on to another solution or just stick with Magento.
