Have any questions about Show Single Variations? We’ve put the most common ones together below:
Is the plugin compatible with WPML?
All Iconic plugins are compatible with WPML (WordPress Multilingual Plugin), this includes Show Single Variations.
Yes. If your products are set as visible in the catalog, they’ll appear as related products. To make sure they’re visible in the catalog, follow this tutorial.
How is this different from your other plugin, WooCommerce Linked Variations?
The two plugins provide a similar final result, but each would be used for a different scenario.
If you have variations of a product with the same (or very similar) titles and descriptions, then WooCommerce Show Single Variations is for you. Google will only index the parent product, and you won’t be flagged for duplicate content.
If you have variations with different titles and descriptions, you may find WooCommerce Linked Variations better. Each variation (single product page, in this case) would then be indexed separately and will give you more results in Google.
Will this plugin affect my SEO negatively?
No. WooCommerce uses canonical links for variable products, which means Google will be given only 1 official URL for the parent product and all of its variations.
Can I hide out-of-stock products?
Yes. You might want to hide all out-of-stock products (including variations added by Show Single Variations) from your WooCommerce catalog. If that’s the case, follow this tutorial.
Can I bulk edit the variation visibility?
Yes. When your product catalog is large, editing variation visibility can take some time. You can speed up this process by bulk editing and uploading those edits with WP All Import. To do this, follow this guide.
