When I load a configurable product link from magento into a browser the product is not found. How can I fix this?
You should check qty, status on child products of configurable product. If you can provide some screenshots on tab: General, Inventory, Website, Categories and Associated Product of configurable product and it's child products, we will more easy to help you find cause for this bug.
Here's what I have found. In many configured products the url_key is the product name for all products. The the product url path appends a number. For those I can use the key to display the configured product.
Most times the url key is the category path and then the product path has a number appended.
I could solve this problem if Magento always assigned the product name as the url_key for configured products.
Do I need to update all the products and include the url_key in the update? Or some other method without php coding?
