When you select hide main product nothing happens and if you have a new label on the main product doesnt show the new label on the variations. so for me defeats the whole idea of the plug in

I installed this plugin and have been using it for a while. It’s easy to setup and get started. I would give 5 stars for that but there are two things… 1. The plugin is not (yet) compatible with the latest Wordpress release. I had to undo my update because this plugin doesn’t work with the latest release of Wordpress (I guess it’s coming soon so I will wait with the update). 2. The variations work perfect for the SHOP pages but on the single product page I have upsells which show up similar to the shop page, I would assume the variations should act the same for those upsell products but it doesn’t. The variations just show up as a long list instead of dropdown selector and none can be chosen. Also the “add_to_cart” button does not seem to work now. For the moment I have removed upsells from all my single product pages as the shop pages are more important functionality to me. But it would be good if the plugin can be used also for upsell products in the single product page. (I use Elementor and Woocommerce)

Hi, Thanks for this plugin, a few clicks on settings and is working good. The plugin works on search and category pages but unfortunately it does not work on the brands page where all the products under that brand is displaying. It only shows the parent ids not the variations. Hope you can help us with this.

Surprisingly easy to set up and just works. Exactly what was needed. Shopowner had set up products with variations as simple products just to show all the available colors/sizes and so that vistors can order them directly from the shop and category pages. Downside of this was that other variations did not show on the product detail page and there were multiple product detail pages with the same (duplicate) content.
