Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » WooCommerce variations stopped working

  • Resolved casparsmits


    Dear WooCommerce,

    We recently found out our variations are not working. Might have been this way for a few weeks. The problems seem similar to the variations problem people experienced with the 3.0.1 update, but none of our variations are trashed. Yet, all of the variations on the website aren’t working. We have a few thousand products with 5 to 50 variations each. We recently moved servers as well, but we did not notice any problems then (but did not test the variations). Might that have caused it?

    As an example, this product, which is relatively simple:

    The variations are in the list but the add-to-basket button doesn’t work. [see screenshot]

    In the backend, the variations are all there [see screenshot], as well as in the database [see screenshot].

    I hope you can help me with my problem. Below the system status report.

  • Same problem. First set of variations are working, the rest are not. Keep getting invalid value and if I reorder them same thing happens. The first of the variations works, the rest not. So there are no concerns that the variations are not valid, the problem lies in something else.

    Esto es causado por otro plugin con la version antigua de select.js causando conflicto con la version de woocommerce select.js v4

    Lo que yo hice fue desactivar el plugin que me causaba problemas y use otro plugin parecido segun indica este enlace:

    En mi caso el plugin desactualizado era ACF Pro, tambien esta la opcion de actualizar el archivo select.js del plugin desactualizado

    I have just updated to Woo Commerce 3.2.0 and my variations all worked fine before the update, now they’ve suddenly stopped working. They all show up on the Products page but when the Add To Cart button is clicked I get a message to say “Please choose product option”.

    Selecting the option doesn’t work.

    Can you help?

    Nothing seems to work, and everything in the back end seems to be correct. Is there anything I might have overlooked?

    Hi all @casparsmits @ne3po0t @nitromax30 @mailingridchestercomau

    Similar issues to this has been resolved by fully updating the WooCommerce core files, and ensuring any template overrides are not conflicting.

    You can read more about plugin and theme conflicts in the documentation here:

    I’m going to mark this as resolved – if you have any further questions, you can start a new thread.
