Kentico Xperience 13 documentation and ASP.NET Core

Most documentation about running Xperience applications under ASP.NET Core can be found in a dedicated section: Developing Xperience applications using ASP.NET Core. The rest of the documentation still applies, but some code samples and scenarios might need slight modifications for Core projects.

Certain pages allow you to switch between Core and MVC 5 content using a selector located under the page heading.

All major differences between the MVC 5 and Core platforms are summarized in Migrating to ASP.NET Core.


Working with product options

Product options offer your customers greater variability in choosing the right product. Options are customizable properties of individual products or even additional products added as accessories. The system allows you to organize the options by dividing them into categories of the following types:

  • Attribute (e.g., Color of clothing)
  • Products (e.g., Portable PC accessories, Configurable PC – Operating system)
  • Text (e.g., Book – Inscription)

For example, your on-line store sells books (products) and your customers can optionally buy the books with inscriptions (product options). Or perhaps your store sells T-shirts and allows your customers to buy the T-shirts (products) in multiple colors (product options).

Another use of product options consists in offering them as special additions to the products. For example, your store sells portable computers (products), and your customers can optionally order the computers with portable printers (product options).

Additionally, you can offer product options as components of products they constitute. For example, hardware components (product options) of a configurable computer system (product).

You can also offer combinations of product options from multiple product option categories as product variants of the product. For example, the T-shirts (products) that you offer in your on-line store are available in different sizes and colors (product options from two different product option categories). Each combination of size and color for a given T-shirt (product variant) behaves in the system as a separate product. This means that each variant has its own SKU (product number), price, and stock records. Learn more about product variants.

Currently, the system doesn't support volume discounts for product options.

You can manage product options from three places in the Xperience administration:

  • In the Product options application, in which you can find all product options. There you can connect products to product options.
  • In the Products application, in which you can find all products. There you can connect product options to products.
  • In the Pages application on the SKU -> Options tab on pages connected to products. There you can also connect product options to products.
