Help with Variation Swatches

Elizabeth Noble

Hello, please could I have some help with setting up Variation Swatches?

I have set it up to automatically create swatches from my product photos when I upload a new products (clothing) which works great for the product page. It does the colour and the size. However, it also shows both the size and the colour on the shop/category page too. For these pages I would like it to only show the colour swatches, not the size swatches. I have tried to change this by following the online tutorials, as well as this Youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1DIlBSJI5o and changing settings, however for some reason I can’t get it to work. Please could you help me? Many thanks

In case it is of use, the variations and attributes for each product are automatically created via a woo commerce product integration provided by my product supplier.

Kind regards,

Elizabeth

Hello Elizabeth Noble,

To avail this feature:

– you have to use Global attributes but in your products, you have used the attributes manually from your product page.

I hope you are clear now.

Thanks

Hello,

Thank you yes I am a bit clearer now. The custom attributes I have used are what is automatically loaded in when I import my products from an external source. Do you know how I can change custom attributes into global attributes?

Many thanks,

Elizabeth

Hello Elizabeth Noble,

Create Global attributes from Products >> Attributes section of your WP dashboard and then assign them to each of your products by removing the custom attributes from there.

This is WooCommerce default thing. You can take more help from Google as well.

Thanks

Okay thank you. As another method, is there a way to override the plugin or perhaps edit my websites CSS to make it so the size swatches just don’t show up on the catalog page? Only the colour swatches.

Thanks

To avail such a feature, please check this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1DIlBSJI5o

Note that you need the PRO version of the plugin to avail this feature.

Hello Elizabeth Noble,

I think you have already achieved your desired feature? There is no size option in the catalog page now.

Could you please confirm?

Thanks

Elizabeth Noble

Hello,

Sorry, In order for it to look okay I had to change the settings so the products displayed as hover style. However I have just changed it back now to the default (how it was before) so you can see. Please have a look again and you can see.

Thanks so much

Hello Elizabeth Noble,

In order to avail this feature, your attributes should have to be Global attributes. But in your products, you are using Manual attributes from your product page: http://prntscr.com/q5m4lj

Thanks

Elizabeth Noble

Yes, unfortunately this is how attributes are imported from my product supplier.

Hello Elizabeth Noble,

Sorry to say but right now, this feature cannot be availed with manual attributes.

Thanks
