Magento 1.9.1, using the rwd theme.

Is it possible to set an attribute as a configurable swatch but leave the control in the product page as a dropdown?

I can see that the JavaScript is using swatches to control the dropdown which has been given the class no-display

Removing this class and operating the select box in the browser shows this to be the case.

Ideally I really just want the 'different product image per option' part of the configurable swatches, but Magento doesn't seem to offer the ability to do one without the other.

Can configurable swatches be made to use the original dropdown?


Try that...

Locate your file style.css and try to add this lines:

.product-options .last .input-box .no-display {
  display: block !important;
.product-options .last .input-box .configurable-swatch-list {
  display: none !important;

I hope this helps you.
