    Can you post the full traceback of these warnings? We do not think this comes from our plugin, but from another plugin or your theme, who also uses Redux, but with old settings options.

    Hello, Just bought your plugin but it ha a problem with displaying. - For some reason on to the next question it does not show the options. https://imgur.com/a/vXq2KDA In that image you can see it adds or does not remove the display:none - When do you think we are able to put this option on a special page? I do not want to display it on the main shop page but on a different shop page? Also, had to clean up a lot of CSS to make the breadcrumb progress bar look normal again. Greetings, Mark

    Hi there, 1) This could happen because the products assigned to your other options do not have this attribute (e.g. the 2 in the screenshot) 2) This is kinda tricky because everything is loaded in categories - we put this on a ticket

    Hello! I have a weird problem... or problems rather. 1) Currently we have a Guide set up on our development site. The guide handles about 450 products which are very similar and only differ in three attributes. The guide has 4 questions and the last question asks what dimensions the customer wants for their products. The dimensions are retrieved from an attribute. We have several hundred values for that attribute and at the most, 50 of those values are displayed after going through the previous three questions. So my question to you is... Is it possible to change from radio buttons to a drop box instead? Have a look at this image: https://ibb.co/gCbBDL 2) The other problem is that once you clicked one of these values, no products are displayed. Depending on which value you choose, it might work but I've tried maybe 20 different combinations of answers so far and at least 75% give me nothing. I was under the impression that if there are no products that match my choices, no values for the last question would show up because eveything has been filtered away, right?

    Okay, for the first question I'll have to find a solution on my own, but as for the second problem, I think you're misunderstanding me. I'm not asking whether it's possible to hide a question and all its choices, My problem is that during a question, there are choices appearing that lead to no products. In most instances, only relevant choices are displayed (again, we're only doing questions with choices based on attributes). Let's say we have two questions: 1. Would you like a t-shirt or hoodie? Choice 1: T-shirt Choice 2: Hoodie 2. What colour would you prefer? Choice 1: Green Choice 2: Yellow Now let's assume that there are t-shirts in both yellow and green but hoodies only come in yellow. So if you pick "Hoodie" in question one, only "Yellow" would be displayed in question 2. Well, this isn't the case for us right now... Both colours are displayed and when you select "Green", no products are displayed, which means the guide is quite pointless.

    Hi, 1) Boxes only get hidden automatically if they have no value. For example if you have no question 4 value, then it won't display. 2) The string is translated in the plugin. Maybe you only need to sync the template again. BR

    Hi. I bought the WooCommerce buying guide and I am having a problem. When I am using the buying guide, I need to load the entire category. Since I have a lot of products in each category (in some I have more then a hundred), I can't afford to load them all because then the page's load time is too long which affects SEO. When I try to use the plugin with products pages, the buying guide uses only the shown products attributes and then, after filtering, it shows the result from the current page and then loads the next products in the category. Is there a way to make the buying guide use the attributes of all the products in the category and then show the right ones after the filter? Thanks, Omer.
