Changing attribute type

Massimo Russo

Hello, I apologize for the inconvenience.

I imported a few hundred products into my ecommerce.
The original site does not distinguish between color attribute and image attribute.
I wanted to know if it was possible to edit a term and change its type from color to image
…and also, put in in another attribute

is it possible?

Hi there,

thank so much for your answer! …and sorry! Maybe I didn’t explain correctly

I try to explain better:

1 – I imported a csv file with about 700 woocommerce product;

2 – All products have many Global Attribute;

3 – in the manufacturer’s original catalog almost all products have the color attribute;

4 – in the color attribute of the original catalog there are both real colors and patterns (so you can find colors like red, blue, black, withe… or patterns like: pois, pinstripe, striped etc.) ;

5 – So I have Color Attribute which inside has many terms which are colors and patterns;

6 – My goal is separate TERMS (not attribute!!!) which have patterns;

7 – I’ll wish to put this TERMS in a separate Attribute which is Image Type!

Logically I cannot delete the terms and redo them because otherwise I would lose their combination with the various products

In other words:

I ask if it is possible to move terms belonging to a color type attribute to another image type attribute

I hope now it’s more clear!

thank so much!
