Description of variant product

Post by sirick » 01 Mar 2024, 13:53

If I have a select product and 2 variants associated with this product, how can I show the description of each variant at the frontend product page when a user selects the options of variant 1 or variant 2? Currently the description doesn't change. It retrieves only the description of the select product.

You need to amend this method: ... #L570-L598

In the template, add the long descriptions of all variant articles and in CSS, hide them until the CSS class is added by the JS method.

If you get it working, we would love to get a pull request with your changes to merge them into the Aimeos core :-)
