  • Resolved Jon Hardison


    Good day!

    I’ve just installed your free plug-in and it appears to be working fine. I like it but there are a few things it doesn’t do. Things that would require I get the Pro version, so I started digging around and I’ve got questions:

    Here in the WP listing the ability to search “Product Variations” is listed as a pro feature but doesn’t really talk about how it works.
    Variations aren’t addressed in the Pro Features section of your site. In fact, variations are listed in the “All Features” section, but again, there’s little clarity on how this works.

    So the first question is which is correct?
    Is this a standard feature or a pro only feature?

    The second question is about functionality:
    Lets say I sell sock and one product is called Pro Socks.
    Now lets say I have variations for size (S, M, L, XL), color, (White, Green, Blue, Red and Black) and have included additional information in the variation description about ideal use (Great for soccer, Designed for space walkers, etc).

    I assume a search for “Pro Socks” will give results for all variations of Pro Socks. But what if I search for “Pro Socks M” or “Pro Socks Green”? Will that produce a result for a specific variation?

    Additionally, I’d like some clarity on weather or not variation description content would also searched. So if I search “Space Walker”, would all the product variations we sell for space walkers come up in the results?

    Does that make sense?
    I look forward to hearing back and appreciate your time.

    Free and Pro plugin versions both can search for variable products content.
    But Pro plugin version also has option to display available products variation in search results.
    You can see how its look here.

    About second question – all variations descriptions are searchable. But in all cases search result will always be parent product.
    So in your example if you search for “Pro Socks M” or “Pro Socks Green” you will see Pro Socks product in results.

    Thank you for the explanation. I’ll jump in and grab the pro version.
    Will variations also pop-up in the widget search or is that something that only works with shortcodes?

    Thanx again!

    No matter widget or shortcodes. Its will works in the same way.
