[resolved] Variation option not showing (6 posts)

    I recently created an wp-ecommerce site today. I have gotten stuck on the product variation option. I can add a product but when i click on the variation tab(located below the product description when creating a product) it opens up and is just blank. I have watched many tutorials on how to setup and use wp-ecommerce and i have noticed that everyone else seem to have options in the area where the variation tab is located. Further more the iframe that loads the information returns null on request (pasted below).

    <h3 class="hndle">
    <div class="inside">
    <iframe src="http://URLTAKENOUTBYWRITER.com/store/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=wpsc_product_variations_table&product_id=12&_wpnonce=6235726589">

    Does anyone know why nothing is displayed in my variation area?

    Would help if you can make a screenshot.
    I think first time you need to open the Setup tab inside the variations to setup your variations before adding them to the product itself.

    Thanks for the reply. I have created a variation called flavours and added to that variation a flavour - green apple. This was done in the variation tab under the product tab in WP. When i go into the product edit tab, the variation tab under the product description area is completely blank. (as shown in the photo). As i have seen in tutorials it is there where you can actually add a variation to a product.

    Is their an option that i need to enable to have access to this? :S

    Hmm...weird stuff.
    When you open the products page. Get the url from the iframe as you posted above and open it in a new browser page.
    Let us know what it shows, maybe a screenshot. If you still get a blank screen then enable debug in wp-config.php
    Most likely you have an error somewhere.

    Ah! I enabled debug mode and found out WP was running out of memory and therefore couldn't display the variation option. I contacted my hosting provider and they raised the allocated memory, i wish they defaulted the limit higher which would of saved me wasting 6 hours of stuffing around.

    It works now, cheers for all your help!
