layered navigation hide out of stock items
When people use the layered navigation plugins that are available they dont want to know if you make a product in their size they want to know if you HAVE a product in that size! :) If it could only show items that are still in stock the world would be a better place!
I noticed that the layered nav widget uses the attributes values to function.
This works fine for most products. However, for variable products, shouldn\'t it use the variations values data instead to show what\'s available?
In a test I did, I edited a variable product, and removed all variations but 1. I left the attributes as is (most were selected). Instead of showing just 1 size as available, all sizes were displayed as being available, only because the attributes were present in that variable product.
A quick fix would be to remove attributes which aren\'t available from each product. However, it\'s not ideal either. When a product goes out of stock, it\'s still listed as being available by the layered nav widget even though it\'s not (and it will be until something is done manually).
Core supports this. There are also more layered nav improvements coming in 2.6!
Any solutions yet?
This isn't supported. Why is it marked as completed?

Following up - this is not resolved despite the fact that it has been marked as Completed! (?)
quite a few people asking for a solution to this
again the github issue here >
Our personal solution here.
Our code wrap out of stock variations with a div + class, but with small modifications I think you could simply remove out of stock variations.

Mike Joley said in April 12: "Core supports this. There are also more layered nav improvements coming in 2.6!"
But I don't see that's the case? Layered nav includes product variations out of stock and that's really AWFUL for clothing and shoes specially!
