I just updated your plugin and my radio buttons do not work anymore

Make sure that you have updated to the latest version of Woocommerce and mapped your product data as their notification suggests.

I have downloaded your plugin and activated but I still do not get any radio buttons

This is typically caused by a theme or plugin conflicting. Try activating the default twenty-twelve wordpress theme. If that doesnt work then go through and deactivate your plugins and then reactivate one at a time to find the conflict.

We've been using this plugin for many months and it works exactly as expected. When we updated to the newest version of Woocommerce 2.5, there was a small problem with featured images not showing. This was at midnight. I did some online research and someone suggested it could be a conflict with this plug-in, so I went to the author's Web site ( and sent them a note asking for help. I awoke the very next morning with an email response from Derek Schmidt, President/Creative Director. He had already looked over our web site and found the exact line of code I had to edit. I made the change and it worked!! I am blown away by the fast response and amazing support for this plug-in. Plus it's a great plug in. Totally pleased. 🙂
