    As a heads up: as of today we have officially deprecated the old '/labs' page due to the features/functionality that were offered therein have not been working nor supported for a long time.

    If you have thoughts on functionally that you'd like to see which this page may have provided, please respond to this thread with ideas.

    The return of Item Sets or some form of offering bundles(potentially of a "discount" being offered) would be useful to many shop owners.

    How about putting up a placeholder page with that explanation instead of the generic 404 "oops" page that makes it look like just another site bug ?

    The Product Variance Mod created a list of cart buttons based on links to existing product pages.

    I would like to have a similar feature like the Product Variance Mod, but instead of cart buttons it creates a drop down list,
    which can be added between the material selection and the Add to Cart button.

    Easily recognisable by the customer, without browsing through the entire description.

    Great Idea Siggi!

    It's definitely something we're looking into!

    Thank you very much, that is great to hear.

    When can we expect the first results ?

    Yes, this is definitely a smart idea. Having different ring sizes for e.g. just clutter the shop unnecessarily. On my part I never got the product variant mod to work!

    We're currently exploring a "native" implementation of variants :)

    More information soon! (tm)

    I was about to start putting links to variants within a main model page. Should I wait to do this? Or asked another way how long should I wait?
