Want To Add Extra Images Per Product Variation For Free? Download Now

Cannot select first option


Few days ago I noticed a problem when selecting the variation in some products: after clicking on an option, the first one become grey and crossed and it’s impossibile to select.

This should not happen as the product is in stock completely. I’ve read others facing the same issue (I think) but I can’t figure out how to solve. For example here and here.

These are some of the products pages where I encounter the issue: this one and another.

This happens no matter the product is really out of stock. Like in this page where it is actually not available.

Hope it’s not that difficult to solve. I have no I idea why this happens.

Hi Pietro,

Could you update your free and premium version of the WooCommerce Variation Swatches plugin?

The current version of swatches plugins is the following.

Variation Swatches for WoooCoommerce – Version 1.1.12

Variation Swatches for WooCommerce Pro – Version 1.1.12

Please make sure you are using the same version and let me know your reported issue has been fixed or not in this latest update?

Thank You

Thank you for your answer.

Now my plugins are all up to date, but the problem is still there.

I’m using the free version of the plugin.

Hope to hear from you soon!

I’ve done the plugin compatibility check and found that the plugin which is causing the problem is Elementor.

Obviously I cannot run my site without it, so what should I do now?

Thank you for your patience.

I found a new plugin for variations that is working fine. I needed to solve that quickly.

I’m sorry we couldn’t figure out what was causing the problem.
