I am trying to setup configurable swatches. I have a configurable products with 300 underlying simple products. I have uploaded images to all 300 simple products to allow the base image to change when I select the swatches.....however only some of the swatches force an image change. My demo page is at:


Only "Pattern 1, Colour 1" is different to any of the other images at the moment BUT if you select that and then click to "Pattern 2, Colour 1", I do not get a change. However other swatch changes will invoke the image to swap. Any ideas how to start debugging this problem? From what I can see all the simple products have images, so I can't see what the problem is......Only my second week on Magento, so struggling a bit to make sense of all this....Any help appreciated.

Thanks Gary

  • In case this is useful to anyone, I resolved the issue. It seems that you can't have more than one attribute with the same value (i.e. don't set up Colour 1 and Pattern 1) as that causes configurable swatches to fail when changing the base image. I ended up having Patters A->K and Colours 1->30. That solved the issue! Commented Feb 27, 2015 at 10:35
