Magento plugin(s): show various colors

Current situation


We are using configurable products (main products) in Magento. These products have been associated with multiple simple products (sub products). In our situation every associated simple product stands for a different color of the product. In the configurable product (main product) we have selected the related simple products (various colors).

In the current situation the configurable products are shown in the catalog (front page and sub categories), in the search results and in the “products” sitemap. Simple products that have been associated aren’t shown individually.

General idea for Magento plugin


In summary we would like to hide some configurable products (main products), and show the simple products (various colors) instead. There are some implications, so we will describe the adjustments required in detail.

Main products


We would like to hide the configurable products in homepage, search, catalog, but it’s very important that these products are still viewable and listed in the “products” sitemap with original url and also in the generated [url removed, login to view]).

To enable this option for configurable products, we would like a new option in visibility (admin: catalog, manage product, visibility). The current options are: not visible individually, catalog, search, catalog and search. We would like a new visibility option called “not visible”.

Sub products (colors) and presentation in catalog view


We would like to show the associated simple products in the homepage, catalog and search results. These simple products (colors) should not be listed in the sitemap!

Besides there are a few adjustments required for the product presentation in the catalog view:

1) The review part on catalog view, and price part should be based on the configurable product instead.

2) The url’s to the product pages in the catalog view, should not lead to simple products, but to the configurable products instead (based on which product relates to the simple product).

It should use the following link: [url removed, login to view]

We would like a new visibility option called “simple color” which makes it possible to show associated simple products, don´t show them in sitemap and make a few changes in product catalog view (category, search).

Select color though URL:


When a visitor visits the product page by clicking on a URL with attributes for the color (using a link for example:

[url removed, login to view]), the product page should automatically select the color of the simple product.
