Creation of attributes

YITH WooCommerce Product Add-Ons allows you to create custom attributes for your product variations.
In this page, we will configure attributes together step by step, so that the way to do that will be as clear as possible.

Click on Products > Attributes and you’ll see a page like this.

Edit attribute

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

  • Name: name of the attribute displayed in front end
  • Slug: slug of the attribute (maximum lenght: 28 characters)
  • Enable Archives: enable this if you want this attribute to have product archives in your store.
  • Type: attribute type. Beside standard WooCommerce types, the plugin adds attribute types: Colorpicker, Image and Label.
  • Default sort order: order to sort attribute terms
  • Description: attribute description

In the example we are going to show you, we have chosen “colors” attribute

New attribute

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:

Add new term

  • Name: color name (shown in frontend)
  • Slug: slug for attribute variation
  • Description: description associated to the attribute variation, shown in 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 product page

In our example, we have entered the following colors:

  • black
  • blue
  • grey
  • orange
  • purple

Terms configurated

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

Create new term

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.

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 in product page.

Attribute section

Once you have configured product settings through the created color attribute, we will see something like this in product detail page.
