Pre-Select Colors Plus Swatches
Have purchased two extensions (Ultimate Swatches, Stock Status) from CJM. Both great extensions from an end-user UI/UX standpoint, both with excellent admin interface and documentation. CJM has been exceptionally helpful and very timely/patient in providing answers to our questions. In addition, we required some customization, which has been executed quickly and effectively at a very fair price. Will be looking out for new extensions from CJM in the future. Recommended without reservation.

I purchased the plugin and it works great. Thank you.
However, there is one feature which I'm not sure if it's included in the plugin or not...
If I have a shirt with 3 colors (Red, Green and Blue), regardless of which color I add to the cart, on the shopping cart page it always shows the base image. Is there anyway if I add the green shirt, the green picture shows up, and if I add the red shirt the red picture shows up on the shopping cart page. This might be confusing for the visitor, when they add a certain color to the cart, but only the base picture shows up on the shopping cart page, which is sometimes a different color then the one the visitor has selected.

the system works well and is quite useful. It has a great visual effect for virtual store.
Only the manual is very basic, it took me two days to get to work, being necessary to open a ticket to better understand. I had the problem of conflict with another extension and we'll check what's happening.

The color switch in the category doesn't works. I get a fatal error or the hole other products gone.

I've had a great experience with Chad and this extension. The extension itself is excellent and Chad did some custom work for me which is spot on as well. Highly recommended.

I love your application very much. Thanks for your development.
I wonder if there are any way to upload all swatch images for all color attributes value? I have over one thousand colors. How can i upload swatch images for them?

I have looked through several reviews extensions and decided to purchase the ‘Pre-Select Colors Plus Swatches’ extension a week ago. Had some problems setting it up properly because of theme issues I had so I purchased the installation service. Support was great!! Chad logged in several times and fixed every issue I had. Now the extension works like a charm!
Great job Chad!!!!!
Thanks a ton,

I just installed this extension to a large ecommerce site, and I must say it really adds functionality that makes a big difference for apparel companies. This extension addresses the need for color search in the layered navigation in a MANAGEABLE way [through attributes]. I have over 40 000 SKU's and am confident that this will work for my requirements.... and be manageable with the autoswatch abilities.
Also, Chad the developer is very helpful and timely on responses. Instructions are clear, and this is a great value combining the expertise and extension.
There are also a ton of options for how this displays in the "more views" and media sections. This does not only give you swatch control and search ability it also enables control of cloudzoom functions and thumbnail sizes through the admin.
To supercharge your catalog page presentation/usability and add search functionality this is a great addition to an ecommerce site.

I think I found a bug, please correct me if I'm wrong:
On your demo page, you have 1 super-configurable product (with configurable color and size) , which includes 5 configurable products (with configurable size).
All products are available in Small, Medium and Large sizes, except Blue (not available in Medium).
In Layered navigation, if you filter by Small size, you can still see all the products, but if you filter by Medium or Large size, you can only see the Super-Configurable product.
I think it would make sense when you filter by Large size to be able to see all 6 products, and when you filter by Medium size to be able to see all products except Blue, which is not available in medium.
There's no point using layered navigation, if it doesn't filter the products correctly. It's supposed to be convenient for the customer, but if it doesn't work correctly it will lead to frustration.
Please let me know what you think.

Very good extension!
I use version 3.5.2 on Magento CE 22.214.171.124. The only one problem so far:
documentation reads that for 1.6 installs (and I used it on 126.96.36.199 initially) "you will need to move the product.js from js/ cjm/colorselectorplus/ to js/mage/adminhtml".
I have just copied product.js to cjm/colorselectorplus and it works now.
