Issue with testing the connection of the swatch and the product and or catagory page

Scott Logvin


We are testing and wanted to understand why on our product page when you click on the swatch – it does seem to work on the product category page : https://shop.barkera.com/product-category/seasonal/


however on the product detail we cannot create the same experience:


when you click the color it does not trigger the correct image.

PLease advise.

Thank you,

Hi Scott,

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Unfortunately, I did not understand the issue properly.

Are you referring to these filter options?

Hope to hear from you soon.

Thank You

Scott Logvin

Yes – Specifically the Filter by color.   Both on the category and product detail pages.    I am simply trying to understand why when you click on the color the associated image does generated.  i.e. Red = Red T- Shirt Image.


Please advise,

Hi Scott,

I am sorry for the misunderstanding.

On the product details pages, clicking on a color changes the product image to match it. This is how WooCommerce variable products work.

For filtering by attributes, it does not work like that. The filter function has a completely different purpose.

I hope that this will clear up your confusion.

Thank You
