Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » [Plugin: WooCommerce – excelling eCommerce] Product edit attributes and variations – bug on local ma

  • Just thought Iā€™d let people know that if you are developing on a local Windows PC (I use EasyPHP/MySQL server) ā€“ there seems to be a bug in Woocommerce where previously added product attributes and variations (for variable products) do not show on the back-end once you have published / updated. The front end website looks fine ā€“ but u cannot go back and edit previously added variations as they are not listed (‘Expand All’ does nothing). This drove me mad as I kept having to delete a product & re-add it whenever I wanted to e.g. change the price of the variation. This all works fine if you are developing on a host. Anyway have now had to change to developing straight on the hosted environment to avoid this bug. Dunno how many people prefer developing on local PC servers first ā€“ but just thought this may help someone!

  • I see you are having a problem with Woo Commerce on a local server. I am trying to set up a website on my local server (WAMP) and I seem to be having nightmares with Woo Commerce Variations. Things happening are:

    1. Variations will not stay in order they are put in when you use the drop down menu.

    2. Some variations are not saving the prices and other information inserted. Which in turn makes the attribute/variation no show up on the front end where the customer can select sizes and prices.

    I have been at this for 5 days now on my local pc using a wamp server. Any body else have these kind of problems. I know that a few weeks ago I set these on the same machine and they seemed to stay in position and had no problems with them dropping prices and stock quantities etc. All Help Gratefully Appreciated. I will probably go and see if I have the same problem when I use the live host.


    I also have the problem with variations showing up in a different order on product page as opposed to the order I put them in on product EDIT page. would love to have some answers!

    In case anyone else is searching for an answer. This is what I did to get them in the order in which I wanted them:

    1) On the left hand navigation in wp-admin, I clicked on Products
    2) Clicked on Attributes
    3) On the right side of the page, I put them in the order I wanted them from top down

    Hope that helps.
