Hi Ronnie,

Unfortunately you cannot use this method when using sub products. It will only work with the normal product displays.

You can mix and match though if you have products without any child products by using different templates to suit the circumstance.

what we do fo this is we use our "enhanced cross-selling" addon to list the sub-products, and then change the header/body/trailer config files for the addon to show the relevant form tags and fields for the sub-products, and then change the parent template to not have the form in it if's not orderable at form level.

that's for the product-detail pages; product summary pages can have similar logic applied to it, but that's more complex as it depends on lots of other things like multiple-product selection etc.
