Hello,

 

When creating a product variation, you have the option to choose color codes to create a swatch of color choices in the admin back end.  I assume you can use these to show color choice on the store front end but cant seem to make it display?  I have gotten color image choices of product images to work but not this?

How can I display these on product front end, what combination of choice of checkbox/image/color am I supposed to use, I have tried them all nothing is working.

 

Also a note of bug, when you choose BLACK (#000000) it shows up as white color swatch.

Looks like you want to display filters on the product details page. But this feature is used for product filters

No, I am not looking to use filters, these are from the new product variations add-on. (Like the old options) It works fine if I use product images in different colors but those are not always available, I want to be able to have a color swatch to choose from and it seems this is what it does its just not working or I don't know the proper setup.

On the product details page you can use only variations images

As I said, color is used in filters only

I have added that feature color as option and the color text shows up as a filter under products but not those colored blocks. Do you have an example where Jan actually see the color block representation you create under features.

It can be easily reproduced on the demo

Note that the Filter type should be set to Color

Ok, yes I see it in the demo now and that’s exactly what I want but can’t reproduce it.

 

My “color” in features is exactly like that, set to “color”

then you have to create a filter for it to show up in product filters correct? I choose that feature color as a filter but my only choices to display are expanded or minimum. Neither give the desired result, just text.

Am I doing something wrong?

It can be caused by 3rd party theme. Examination is required

I didn't want to go thru the whole process of starting from scratch explaining everything I thought I would just hire you from here, you have already done work for me, but ok, I will go thru the process and wait on response.

 

Thanks

Is this something you can do yourself, you are already familiar with the issue doesn't seem like it would take very long of course I'm willing to pay.

Unfortunately, no. Hire someone else from this forum.
