How to Edit Show Only Selected Variant Media on AURORA THEME

Hi,

Aurora Theme actually has this feature, however I want to optimize it as their feature is currently showing images in corrispondence to their alt tag being "{variant name}", so if I had 2 Color variants (Green and Blue) for my page i must modify their alt tag to be "Green" (for the images i want to show up when green option is selected) and to "Blue" (for the images i want to show up when green option is selected)

However I wanted to be able to use my custom alt also, changing the feature to this:

  • To specify an image that would be visible only for the color "red" (assuming the option for the variant is called Color), and use your custom ALT tag: Red t-shirt for men #color_red

If your color is made of several words (for instance "Deep Blue"), then you must write the color name in lowercase WITHOUT any separator between each words of the color.
For instance, the correct alt tag would be:
#color_deep blue".

Would it be impossible for someone to please help me? 
I think I must go into collection.liquid and change the variant id there

Hi! This is Ann from the Aurora Dev Team. We are currently busy re-doing this image sorting feature and your contribution is of much help. I've passed it over to our devs. And I'll let you know here, once the new "Show Only Selected Variant Media" is ready.

Hi Ann! Would this take a couple of days? Because we need this feature before our launch and we are in the very very verge of launching

Or if you would be able to tell me which tweaks I must do in the code I will do it and then switch with tranquillity when you guys get this feature out

Unfortunately, this is not a minor improvement and can't be delivered that quickly. Moreover, each theme update is a bunch of changes and fixes, that need to be detected, tested, and later also approved by Shopify before release, which adds extra time. So, this cannot take a couple of days. As for the personal code, we don't provide customization services, for we don't have a dedicated team. 

 

What I can guarantee is that we'll improve the feature, because it's been requested by many merchants, and will notify everyone interested upon the rollout.

Hi! Just letting you know we've improved the "Show Only Selected Variant Media" feature in Aurora in a way you've described earlier. You can find the new setup guide here. Update your theme up to version 3.1.0 to use this feature.
