My last post was in the wrong area , I hope I can get some help here.

 

I have a product i want over 300 options for.

 

Once I IMPORT my options with .csv the OPTIONS tab will not function.

 

I can select the option, But any kind of modification such as Image load,

or simply adding text to description, will make the back end unresponsive.

 

Is there a setting I can change? Or is this many options simply not possible.

 

Any addon suggestions? 

 

Thanks.

What type of option?  Goblal or unique?  What display type?  Select, text, radio, checkbox, multiple checkbox, etc.?

Are these 300 different options?  Or are there 300 variants to one option?

Maybe  max_input_vars needs increasing on your server

 

300 is a lot, it may be worth you thinking of splitting the product into clan names, a-e and another product f-p etc

max_input_vars was one of my first hits in research,

but I don't know what it should be, the one relevant post on these forums said to increase it to 2000

but mine was already set to 3000,

 

Your volume separation of the full index idea is not so bad, I was looking at the "Customization addons, but truly that is a bit overkill for my needs.

You might want to think about how you're applying "options" to this product.

Given you already have the "gallery" of options, it would be a pretty small amount of jQuery to have the customer click one of the images and have it set the option and simply have it display the name of the object that was clicked.

 

Trying to create a selector with 300 items (variants) is going to tax browsers, especially mobile devices.

EZ- I agree this would be best practice in my case, If you could point me in the direction of ANY post with similar referance

       I would be most appreciative. Would this require core modification?

 

 

Johnbol1 - For future reference Thank you! bumping max-input-vars to 5000 solved the issue with crashing the admin area on further                        option modifications. This will allow me to play with some other mostly bad ideas :)

 

 

Alt-Team- I have pondered your product, and I am sure its awesome but at that price point I would end up switching to WC as there are similar solutions.

I know of no "posts" that discuss this.  It would require a hook to midify the option selector and replace it with a non-editable text field.  The jQuery is pretty simple if your gallery was constructed reasonably.  But I think loading 300 images on a mobile device is going to kill you anyway. Easiest way would be to turn your gallery into a radio group.
