Basically I need to have specific attribute set appear baseds on what product category is choosen, I don't want the client to have the ability to screw it up
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, you can display attributes on catgory list page.
You can follow this instuction:
admin->catalog->manage attribute -> select attribute - >property->frontend property-> Used in Product Listing ->change it to yes
And, you will see the attribute in list page.
Thanks for responsding.
This isnt what I asked, I am not asking on how to display the attrbute.
I want to apply a certain attribute set to a specific category
Category 1: gets Attribute set 1 applied to its products
Category 2 gets Attribute set 2 applied to its products, but not atribute set 1
If you are required certain different attributes for the product, then create a new attributes set and create a product using that attribute sets. It is not required to create a category attribute.
This is not possible (at least not out the box anyway). The reason for it is because when you create a product, if the attribute set was inherited from a category, the product page would not know what to load until the category itself was chosen and fundamentally this is not how products are put together.
