The Modern Theme displays subproducts different than other ShopSite themes. Subproducts are displayed in a list of checkboxes. If you would like the parent product to be listed in the list as one of the checkboxes, you can add the parent product as a subproduct of itself. This will make is so that the parent product is included in the list of subproducts. An example of this can be seen below. Each of the options in the list is it's own product.
