Hi to all, I need to search for a configurable product by a child SKU (without make visible on search each simple product)... How it's possibile? Any idea?
Thanks a lot!
First of all, search the Child Products By Sku and from that list you find the configurable product of that child Product.
$products = Mage::getModel('catalog/products') ->getCollection() ->addAttributeToFilter('sku', YOUR_SIMPLE_SKU);
then join $products with catalog_product_link, catalog_product_link_type to find the parent products
if you are talking about the search box in front page, then you will have to rewrite fulltext indexer engine.
