Thanks for the quick analysis, Jason. I will give it a go.
Browsing the extensive WA forum boards, seeing the number of customers you interact with (newb and experienced), it must be said that you do an amazing job! It's nice for someone with limited experience, like me, to not be made to feel that their question(s) are silly or amateurish ... we all start somewhere!!
One more thing, if you have time to consider a solution ... direct me as to how I might tie the select size menu to the displayed product price on the details page. I have the base price listed, but would like it to change if a size option is selected.
