Why are some product variants not auto-selecting in the Debut theme?

Hey 🙂 My store uses the Debut theme. I have products with many variants. My older products have a functionality where if you click on a variant thumbnail, the variant is automatically selected in the dropdown, and displayed as the main image. The newer products are not doing that, even though they are all set up exactly the same way. Why does it work on some products, and not on others?

Hi, @Woolstock!

 

Thank you so much for connecting with our network and sharing your question.

 

Mhm, there is no reason that one product would act different from another, unless it was using a different product template or there have been coding changes. One easy way to find the root issue is duplicating one product that is set-up correctly, and then viewing the behaviour that appears on the front-end.

 

While the Debut Theme is one of our vintage themes and support is minimal if coding changes have been made, we should still be able to figure out what is causing this.

 

I look forward to your reply,
