Hi all,

I've been banging my head trying to work out a way to do the 
following and was wondering if anyone else has come up with a 
brilliant idea to get around it.

Each SKU has the ability to have modifiers associated with it 
(different sizes, colours etc) but each SKU has only one inventory 
level. So if a shirt was available in small, medium and large in the 
colours green and black that's 6 distinct products but only one 
inventory amount can be shown (at present).

At this point in time we do not wish to allow back ordering (long 
story) so I have ensured that nothing can get through to checkout 
without being in stock, however for items with modifiers this is not 

The short term solution I guess would be to have no modifiers and 
have each item as a separate entity, works, but ugly... has anyone 
come up with a better idea?
