Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Woocommerce 3.2.4 – Product Variations do not save – Variations Revert to Defaul

  • Resolved bryanr18lowe



    I have many products and have been able to successfully set up product variations for all of them.

    Post update of Woocommerce, my product variations will not save. They revert back to “Any …. ” in each prospective drop down menu for what I have created as Color or Pattern.

    I have switched themes to use 2017 and the problem still occurs. I have increased the max_input_vars in my php.ini file and the problem still occurs.

    I’m hopeful you could help me out!

  • Thank you for your comments here and the time you’ve put into this @inndesign.

    This is certainly not a rare or isolated problem. I am discovering that there are examples of it all over the web right now. It’s rough because I have a client that is all over me about adding their new inventory for the holiday shopping season here and I didn’t want to have to revert back to an older version of woocommerce but it’s looking like this is the only real solution for this issue right now.

    3.2.5 has not fixed this issue for me @cygnetmidwest

    I’m hopeful we could get a solution as soon as possible and put this one behind us. It’s a major flaw.

    @cygnetmidwest, @bryanr18lowe,

    Did you ever manage to get to the bottom of this – it’s a major flaw indeed and my clients are all over me about it!

    Many thanks for any help you can offer.


    Sorry to hear you’re still having trouble. The upgrade to Woo fixed the issue for me. One other thing I did is increase the max number of variables allowed and the max execution time in the PHP.ini file (on Apache). Here’s what I set those to:

    max_input_vars = 30000
    max_input_time = 340
    max_execution_time = 90

    I’m not 100% sure this helped, but it certainly didn’t hurt. I know doing this helps if you have a lot of variations present on a product.

    Hi @taylorsuk @bryanr18lowe

    Is the site all updated? We did see a lot of problems with variations before the 3.2.5 update, this update resolved the majority, and I believe 3.2.6 resolved the rest. I haven’t heard of recent examples.

    If this is still causing a problem, it may be due to some specifics with the variations, like special characters, if you can provide examples, I’d be happy to take a look.
