Want To Duplicate Product Variations With Its Price, Image, SKU and etc? Download This Free Plugin

Can’t add new value on product editing page after using “Variation Swatches for WooCommerce” extension

Hi, I really love the plugin but I meet a problem when I use this plugin. I can’t add a new color or a new style or option name on the woo commerce product edit page after I am using the plugin. I was able to use it before. Now I have to go to the attribute settings and add the settings first and go back to the product page to use on the demo video you are showing. You are able to add a new option there. Can you help? Because this really affects my work now. Please get back to me soon.

Hi Catherine,

We have disabled the option to add new attributes for the color type attributes.

I would recommend adding the attributes Globally then add with your products.

There is a technical problem if you add color attributes here.

If you have any confusion, please let me know.

Thank You

Hi Golam,


Thank you for getting back to me.  I understand now.  I saw your demonstration video on Youtube where you can add new values.  Here is the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IhEZiGzJHs&t=311s.


This link may be a previous video and the function may change now.  Now I see that it is because you disable the function.


I guess for most of the business, it will be easier to add the attribute on the Attribute first and I believe that there is a reason.  But for our situation.  We are selling jewelry and accessories which means that the name will be very different sometimes and it would take more time to add the attribute on the Attribute first and get back to add the info on the product editing page.

There will be hundreds and maybe more new products every day in the future that we need to add and the variation function we want for the shop page is to help our customers to see that there will be more choices for the product yet these products can’t have a fix option name sometimes.


So, if we can add the value on the product editing page when we need a new one and these attribute values will go directly into the Attribute, it will be much help for us.  Because we are using this for the long run and we want to make sure these help and don’t need too much of extra time for the work.  When we need to add hundreds of products every day, this will be a big thing that occupied our time.

I am not sure about the technical part of the function and if what we want (like the Youtube video link)is ok or not but we do hope this can be fixed.  It will be a great improvement for your plugin too.

Thank you so much.
