Color swatches in product detail?


Recommended Posts

I would like to add color swatches somewhere on the product_info.php and I'm wondering if anyone has done it before, and if so, how?


I have a drop down with five 'finishes' for a product, but would like five 'color' swatches to show what each 'finish' looks like.


Furthermore, some products only come in two,three or four finishes, while others come in all five. Can this be done in a way that the finshes can be selected when the products are added?

There are contributions that allow you to add additional images for products and there is one that allows you to use additional images as the attribute to choose from.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

Just tried the 2nd link and it totally messed up my setup ;) kept getting errors and it didn't display the products/attrib sections on the admin side. Pages also got messed up ;) When i did the mysql queries everything to added fine, not sure why it didn't work. I just removed the mysql entries and undid the edits, everything back to normal.


have you tried it? did it work for you? =l
