Losing featured image when variation image selected

Luke Newland


We have the pro version, key above.

Just need to understand how to achieve something.

When opening a product, the featured image displays by default in the main placement, and that’s fine. We then have the variation images in the image gallery, which we have added, which is also fine.

The function all works okay – when you select one of the two variants, the image shows in the main placement. However, it replaces the featured image within the image gallery which is then lost until the user ‘clears’ the options.

How can we ensure the gallery remains unchanged, regardless of which product is selected? We would like the main image to change, but the gallery to remain just the images we have chosen.

Hope this is a quick fix.

Hi Ahmed,


Hopefully this helps.

You will see, the featurd image is ‘kicked out’ when the variation is selected. We really wanted to gallery images to remain exactly as when you first open the product, but only the main image change when you click each variation.

Functions exactly as needed, apart from this issue.

Hi Luke Newland,

Could you disable our plugin and check what’s happening?

Let me know is it happening the same without or plugin or not?

Thank you
