Hi there,

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction for adding a dropdown menu to select product variations on a product page.
Using the "ecommerce module v0.8.1", as well as the "E-commerce Product Variations Colour Extension" from the SSU Demo Site, So far i've created size and color variations for an example product (screenshot below).
However, I now want to change this to a dropdown menu as in the SSU Demo Site example found here:
ie: selecting color and size rather than a cluttered list of every product variation.

Can anyone help that has already implemented this or something similar?

Thank you,

Still waiting on a response to this - can anyone provide some insight please?

Please note: The product variation example url is no longer valid: Here is another example from the SSU Demo for what i'm wanting to do.

The VariationForm you're after was added in after 0.8.1.

Assuming you want to go with my version of the code, you could try the zip/tar downloads on this page:, which will become version 0.8.3 at some point.

Then all you need to do is find your template, and remove everything between <% if Variations %> ... <% else %> (the table) , and replace with $VariationForm.

Thanks Jedateach,

As suggested, adding $VariationForm to the template worked straight away with v0.8.1 – gotta love it when things go that simply!

However, I had also installed the E-commerce Product Variations Colour Extension module by Nicolaas - from the demo site downloads resource at

Please note: When adding $VariationForm to the template in an ecommerce v0.8.1 setup without this module I experienced an error – adding the module then fixed this.

Thanks again,
