I’d like to purchase this plugin: Variation Swatches for WooCommerce. However, I’d like to be able to specify which swatches will be displayed on the main product page. ie: If a product has 15 variations, I want to control which images will be selected, and then have a “more” link. Can I select them? Or know that the first 3 will be used? Or is it random?
Thank you in advance.
Hello Aharon Eidelman,
It cannot be randomized. It will come sequentially. I hope you are clear now.
Can I please close the ticket now?
Please clarify what you mean by “it will come sequentially”. Do you mean that the first 3 variation images avl for this product will be the ones displayed as the swatches on the product list page?
Could you show me any example?
Do you mean that the first 3 variation images avl for this product will be the ones displayed as the swatches on the product list page?
Yes, you are right. If you are clear now, can I please close the ticket now?
Thank you for your response. What I really would like is to use this plugin in combination with your “Additional Variation Images for WooCommerce” plugin. So if I have a product with 10 variations, and 5 images for each variation, will the “Variation Swatches for WooCommerce” plugin display the first image from the first 3 variations? (that would be great!) Or will it display the first 3 images from the first variation? (that would not be good at all!)
Do you mean to select which variation should display image like here https://www.loom.com/share/775f7a4d190a4cbfa6e2eabf118b70d1
Hi, and sorry for the delay, as I was away. I am back now and would like to take care of this asap.
The loom.com screencast does NOT help me.
What I really would like is to use this plugin in combination with your “Additional Variation Images for WooCommerce” plugin. My 2 questions are:
1 — If I have a product with 10 variations, and 5 images for each variation, when I go to the PRODUCT LIST PAGE, will the “Variation Swatches for WooCommerce” plugin display 3 swatches from 3 different variations? ex: red, yellow, blue? (that’s what I want!) Or will it display red, red, red? (this I do NOT want).
2 — I need to control which swatches display on the product list page. ie: If my product has colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, and each color has 5 images. I want to control which 3 image swatches show on the PRODUCT LIST page. ie: Can I specify to show yellow, blue, and black images? And if I have 5 yellow images, 5 blue images, and 5 black images, can I control which image is used for the swatch? Or does it always pick the first image for the variation?
I hope that this is more clear.
Question – 1: It will display red, yellow, blue.
Question – 2: Currently, this is not possible.
OK, thanks for your reply. Now re Question – 2: So we have a product with colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black (in that order) and each color has 5 images. Will it automatically display images for the first 3 colors listed (red, orange, yellow), or will it randomly select any color to display swatches for on the product list page?
And if there are 5 images per color, does it always pick the first image for the variation — to use for the swatch image on the PRODUCT LIST PAGE? Or will it randomly select one swatch image per variation?
Please, check on Google about how WooCommerce variable product works and to configure them. Your 2nd question functionality is not related to our plugin. I am not sure how much familiar you are with WooCommerce variable product concept.
