Doesn't add the product to the cart ? Well it shows everything as described but didn't add the product to the cart, Whenever I tried adding to the cart it always shows an pop up with the error "Please specify the product's option(s)." January 24, 2014
Great extension It works as we need...its perfectly suits our requirement. This extension saved our lot of time.Great work.. January 7, 2014
Really good for free version + how to remove copyright Really simple, just what I needed. Works perfect! IMPORTANT: Saw many people complain about the copyright, and indeed this was my only negative point as well. But I found a solution... TO REMOVE COPYRIGHT: Go to: App/Design/Frontend/base/default/layout Edit the file: "em_colorswatches.xml" Find and delete the following piece of text and your done: <reference name="before_body_end"> <block type="core/text" name="galathemes.copy"> <action method="setText"><text><![CDATA[<p style="text-align:center;font-size:0.8em"><a style="color:inherit;text-decoration:none" href="http://galathemes.com/magento-extensions/color-swatches.html">Color Swatches Magento extension</a> by Galathemes <a style="color:inherit;text-decoration:none" href="http://galathemes.com/">Magento Themes</a></p>]]></text></action> </block> </reference> December 19, 2013
Fix in settings.phtml for support of configurable products If you have configurable products where some attributes decrease the price of it (instead of increase) you must replace this line in settings.phtml, inside the create_swatches function (Javascript part): // remove price if opt.getAttribute('price')) key = trim(key.replace(/[\+|\-]([^+]+)$/, '')); December 9, 2013
It works, but it needs changes in code to work on IE 9 If you want to make it work on all browsers (including IE 9) using Magento 1.7 / 1.8, open the file app/design/frontend/base/default/template/em_colorswatches/settings.phtml and replace the fireEvent function with this below: function fireEvent(element,event){ var evt = document.createEvent("HTMLEvents"); evt.initEvent(event, true, true ); // event type,bubbling,cancelable return !element.dispatchEvent(evt); } It worked for me. November 26, 2013
This extension is good This extension is good, but the images must be into /media/swatches not /media/color_swatches/ November 20, 2013
I want to have it more advanced... It's a good extension but I sell cosmetics with various colors and I love to have a notice option that there are more colors available before you click on a product. There has to be a text underneath the product with more colors available notice. Or more colors available color swatch images of 15x15 pixels underneath the product image before you click on the product. The copyright text on the product info page is indeed not professional for a real web store. I would like to have it removed if it's allowed. November 19, 2013
Copyright link in the footer Hi, This is barely simple extension, with all due respect to the owners. There is a copyright link in the footer that is placed without any notice, and it cannot be removed. Thus, This is not useful for no proffesional usage. Regards, Josip November 11, 2013
404 Error After I installed the extension, I get a 404 Error - Page not fond when I try to enter the extension settings in System -> configuration . Does anybody knows what could be the problem? I've tried to rename the extension folder to "swatch" but nothing. Thanks October 17, 2013
Great Extension!! After correcting the directory as suggested by other users. This extension is now working flawlessly. Would be great to implement this in the layered navigation as well.. Great job!! October 8, 2013

Answer: 
Junaidali,

I have run into this before, for me the solution was to make sure to select the right store. On the upper left of the configuration page under:

"Current Configuration Scope"

Be sure that the correct store is selected, in my case I just have:

"Default Store View"

If you have more than one store etc, you'll have to make sure that you set the colors(or whatever value you are setting) for each store.

I hope this helps.

Answer: 
I found that for 1.8 the files need to be place here: media/swatches/

NOT here: media/color_swatches/ like it says.

Everything else seems to work fine. Just make sure your naming your options properly, check for extra spaces and punctuation.

Answer: 
No this does not do that, however, you can have different image show in cart:
System\Configuration\Sales\Checkout\Shoping Cart; Configurable Product Image, change to "Product Thumbnail Itself" so at least customer can see what they ordered.

I have installed this on v1.9 and I ran into a problem where the swatches are align vertically; i.e one on top of another. Is there a fix for this?

Thanks in advance!

Answer: 
Gala's support team was very helpful in solving this problem, fix are as follow:

Locate this file:
/skin/frontend/base/default/css/em_colorswatches.css

on line 3,
.swatches-container .swatch-img { border:1px solid #eee; }

Change to:
.swatches-container .swatch-img { border:1px solid #eee; float: left;}

Problem solved, all credit to Gala's support team!
