Understanding Product Display Nodes
Hello - complete newbie here...
In Randy Fay's great video on importing products (/node/467), he has a second step of importing into product display nodes and thereby creating product reference nodes? I am getting lost in the terminology.
Is a product reference node a product display node that displays referenced products?
And why in his example does he import descriptions into the display node and not the product import? Maybe it was just for an example of what import can do and not necessarily a "best practices"? Seems like product detail info would fragmented and hard to chase down if it's not all on the product's own page?
thanks for any clarification.
