Back Order Product Not Appearing
When I follow these instructions https://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/magento/108-products-a-product-categories-in-magento/allowing-backorders-for-specifc-products-in-magento my product is not visible on the front end of the site. In order for my product to appear do I have to adjust the "visibility" of the simple product?
Thanks for your question relating to Magento products and their visibility. So, depending on your settings, you may need to enable them and make them visible. There's a few variables here. First, do you have it set to show products that are out of stock and / or do you have inventory in the product. Is the simple product part of a parent product? Simple products that are represented by attributes like color and size need to be attached to a parent product. Also, Magento is cache heavy so you may need to clear the cache and re-index the website for them to show. If you provide an URL I'd be happy to take a look for you.
I hope this helps!
