There is a bug in our site that is removing attributes when products are updated. i need this sorted out and resolved by tonight. Here's the action that lead to the bug:
1. Add image to additional images area of product
2. save/update product
3. review product on front-end of website - options to add "Top Color" and "Side Color" are gone.
Other active products that were not updated are setup fine and can be used as a reference.
