Configuration of terms

Once you have created an attribute, you have to add variations of it. Click on the button shown to enter the first variation.

Configure terms

To add a new color, specify the following required options:

Color options

  • Name: color name (shown in frontend)
  • Slug: slug for attribute variation
  • Description: description associated to the attribute variation, shown in the front end
  • Colorpicker: choose the colour you want to assign to the current attribute variation using a colorpicker
  • Tooltip: tooltip associated to the attribute variation and shown in the product page

You need to specify {show_image} for the attributes of image type in “Tooltip” entry if you want to show as tooltip the selected image preview for that specific term.

You can create new product variations directly from the product detail page.
Open a product and, after adding an attribute, click on Add New to add a new variation.

Add new

In our example, the attribute type is “colorpicker” and, therefore, in the modal window that opens we will have to add colours for the new variation.

New attribute term

The plugin allows configuring a term for the attribute by matching two colors.

Click on the specific button to select the second color.

To create a new attribute, you have to fill the following fields:

Add attributes to the product

To associate the attribute “Colors” to the product, do exactly as you would do for any other attribute belonging to WooCommerce types.
Add the new attribute and values in the section Attributes on the product page.

You can now configure the product settings through the created color attribute. There is an option to add a different (separated) image gallery for each of the product variations. In this case, each color will have its own image gallery.
