I'm creating a website for a promotions company. There are numerous categories such as clothing, mugs, umbrella, usb & Tech, bags & folders, etc.
Each product has different options available, e.g. the umbrellas would have the options to have different coloured panels, some have 8 panels some have more some have less. clothing can be printed on the sleeves, front and back.
My question is: any suggestions on the best way to layout the database and/or product pages, like how to allow the selection of different amounts of colours without having to make lots of different product pages.
any ideas, discussions much appreciated.
