MarketPress Items with Variants

Has there been issues with products with variants not correctly displaying Product Descriptions/Related Products.
I have two products with variants and a few without. The products without variants appear fine, but the ones with variants have issues with the Description/Related Products.
In some cases, clicking the "Description" tab scrolls the page up, but reveals no content. Sometimes the Related Products tab doesn't display.

Not sure, I'm sure I turned off minification, which was causing problems before. However, Divi has updated recently as have all the other plugins.

    Hi emilio_gagliardi ,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    This bug was already reported, however, we are very close to release a new version of MarketPress where this issue will be fixed.

    Meantime, I can provide an hotfix, if you are interested:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/ttsgjskbyyhq0xr/class-mp-product.php.zip?dl=0

    1) Download the .zip file and extract the "class-mp-product-php" file;

    2) Using FTP access, go to "wp-content/plugins/marketpress/includes/common" and replace the existing file;

    I hope this information has been helpful. If I can help you in this or other questions, please let me know!

    Cheers, Luís

    Hi Gurus,

    I just installed the update to MarketPress hoping it would correct some of the problems, but problems still remain.

    Products with Variants are not working correctly.
    1) When you click the 'non-default' option, the page updates to the 'non-default' image. however, the product information is no longer visible.
    2) when you attempt to click on the "default" option, the image doesn't update back to the default image, nor does the product information get displayed again.
    3) I just don't understand how to make product images look good. No matter what size of image I create, they all look terrible when displayed next to the product information.
    I've tried 200px 300px 500px 800px wide images, and no matter what, the image is rendered horribly.
    For example, http://www.ecoevolver.com/store/products/standalone-classroom-kit/ the image when you first view the page is terrible, when you click on the image to view it in the lightbox it looks perfect...wheat is going on here?

    Thanks!

    Hi emilio_gagliardi ,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    Regarding to your questions 1 and 2, I was unable to replicate in my install. It can be related with your theme or some plugin conflict? Have you tried a plugin conflict test, as described in the flowcart of the below page:

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/using-wpmu-dev/getting-support/

    Regarding to your third question, I think I already gave some suggestions in a previous topic created by you, but allow me to add some more informations.

    MarketPress uses a default image size for all images and will crop all images used in the products for the format chosen. That size is defined in Store Settings -> Presentation, "Page Product Settings" section, "Image Size" field.

    If you will use images in a perfect square format, you can choose the suggestions given in the select menu (thumbnail, Medium or Large) and the best option should be upload images with the exact size chosen or other proporcional size.

    I.E. -> If you choose an Image Size of 300 x 300, the best option should be upload images with 300x300 or 600x600 or 900x900.

    The image used in the product you mentioned above have a rectangular format, so, if you will use this type of format for all products, in Store Settings -> Presentation, Page Product Settings, choose "Custom" in the "Image Size" field and add your custom "width" and "height" and follow the same proporcional size mentioned above:

    I.E -> f you choose an Custom Image Size of 200 x 400, the best option should be upload images with 200x400 or 400x800, ............

    From what I saw in your Store Settings -> Presentation, you chosen an "Image Size" of 300x300 and if use an image with a rectangular format, MarketPress will resize it.

    I hope this information has been helpful. If I can help you in this or other questions, please let me know!

    Cheers, Luís
