Are you missing a feature or do you have suggestions to this plugin?Feel free to contact me via the following email if you have any questions:


Attribute groups

The attribute groups refer to the property groups created in the variant configuration (to be found under Edit Item > Variants > Configuration> Active groups).

For example, if you want to see the second property of an item (for example, a T-Shirt with color and size properties) in the list, select Attribute group 2 under "Displayed attribute group" which in this case refers to the property size.

Sorting the list

Set the setting "Sort by" to "Unsorted" to preserve the default sort order.                                        

Here sorting is retained as under Edit Item > Variants > Available Variants.                                        

If you want to sort by the displayed field, under "Sort by", select "Name". Alternatively you can also sort by other fields such as price, weight and free text fields.

Customizing the templates

All templates of the plugin can be overridden in a child theme under the following path:

MyTheme/plugins/maxia_lvp/    (not MyTheme/frontend/plugins/maxia_lvp)

Top Plugin und sehr schneller Support

27 Feb 2019

Sehr hilfreiches und funktionales Plugin sowie sehr schneller Support bei Verbesserungsvorschlägen.



7 Feb 2019


...das hab ich gesucht

15 Jan 2019

Ein Plugin, das im Listing alle Varianten (einstellbar wieviel) anzeigt in Listenform, Dropdown oder als Button. Sofort aus dem Listing heraus bestellbar. Angezeigt werden Grundpreise, Lieferzeiten. Automatische Preisanpassung bei Auswahl. Diverse Einstellmöglichkeiten, die sich bis auf die Artikel runterbrechen lassen, sind vorhanden. Da ich nur mit einer Attributsgruppe arbeite, ist es für mich wie gemacht. Der Support ist spitze und antwortet schnell, stellt Updates fast in "Lichtgeschwindigkeit" bereit ;-). Bisher habe ich es nur getestet, werde es mieten. Vielen Dank.
