Changing color changing image
« on: September 04, 2013, 11:47:04 am »
Hi, excuse me for my bad english but i have a problem with virtuemart.

In the single product page i need to insert many attribute like color, but i want that when client click on color the image change like the color selected. Are there a plugin or a mod to have this effects?

Thanks for collaboration

I know the generic child approach but that loads a new product page and also is not that nice to setup, because you can't order your child products by different characteristics like have a generic child custom field with only the size variants and a other with only the color variants.
Url for a demo which is not so nice to setup, pls.

PS, I looked into Maxim Pishnyak component but that's not much more then a cutom image field and does not change the main image :-\
Did you actually read my post in mentioned thread?

Hi Maxim, thanks for replying!

Here is a URL of a not so nice setup of products variants with reloads. The problem of setting up the product variants by for example color and have a other field setting it up for example a extra feature would be favourable but I had to setup like this;

Bike (basic) has 2 variants; 1 color and 2 extra feature (basket)
Bike color variant has one variant; extra feature (basket)

So there are 4 bikes (combinations) URL (http://bikem.nl/vm2/index.php/opafiets) the first dropdown menu is the one, the other two dropdown menu's are the way I would like it to be.

So is it possible to have 2 separate dropdown menu's for the color and a extra feature?

Thanks,

Maxim Pishnyak

I'm afraid you need to have only one color choosable control. Maybe you need to combine 'General color variant' and 'Variant color'.

Also to have or not to have 'basket' is irrelevant to color deal. Anyway customer could choose such extra option in any case.

Did you look into my post? Do you have some difficulties with it? You need to have childs with different colors you know?

Hello Maxim Pishnyak,

I am really interested by the post you mention here (for Color component thread in 3rd party forum section), but couldn't find any link...
Could you please provide us the link ?

Google translate this http://joomla-create.net/item/tovar-table.html (doesn't survive VM update - better to use mentioned above 3rd party extension or maybe Catproducts 3rd party solution).
Solution without page reload and without help of children was met on Russian forum but it doesn't look stable.
