Variations will now inherit the star ratings of their parent product. This really completes the appearance of variations when they’re displayed within the catalog.
New: Variations Inherit the Menu order of Their Parent Product
It’s a feature that’s been requested time-and-time again; variations are now sorted alongside their parent (or where the parent would be, if it is hidden) in the catalog listings when using the default ordering.
This feature was very complicated to develop. Initially I wanted to use post meta for this, but found on large stores it became very, very slow. The final solution utilises some SQL magic which means the catalog pages will load just as quick as before.
New: Variations in Up Sells / Cross Sells
Some of you may have experienced issues showing your variations in up sells or cross sells if your parent product was set to “hidden”. Well this is no longer an issue. If your variation is visible in the catalog, you’ll be able to show it in the up sells or cross sells, regardless of its parent’s visibility settings.
