Manage Options

Under Manage Options I run into this problem: Changing the price for a particular Variation and then saving that updated Product Variation does not, in fact, SAVE the price changes I've made. Likewise, on the same Product Variations, selecting or deselecting the "For Sale" flag DOES NOT always "save" its status when I select the "SAVE VARIATIONS" to update my database. I have lost days deleting a product and all it's options to start over in the event Cafe Commerce software has corrupted my database. I have even reduced the number of Groups/Options a product can have with no success, despite your claims that we can have UNLIMITED options per product, to test if there is in fact a limitation. But I have not tested this extensively to prove one way or the other if there are in fact limitations. Please, help.

Additionally in this process of deleting Groups/Options, I have had your software auto populate... (that's right, AUTO POPULATE) my "products" with literally hundreds and hundreds of products. I presume your software somehow converted my SINGLE product, which may have hundred of variations under MANAGE OPTION/Groups, into individually separate products. And since your web interface software only allows deleting ONE product at a time (absolutely ridiculous, BTW) with a confirmation screen slowing the process down even further... THAT has cost me days of just deleting as well. I even had to create a keyboard script to delete these individual product files in my absence by running the script overnight.

The overall impression these apparent bugs in YOUR software create is that Cafe Commerce is NOT ready for prime time. Of course, my hope is that I am completely wrong and you will now tell me about the simple fix - on my end or yours.
Thank You.
