    PrestaShop Combination Activate / Deactivate {User Guide}

    PrestaShop Combination Activate / Deactivate: PrestaShop has given its users a very convenient and handy functionality to add Combinations to its products. In PrestaShop, Combinations generate in two simple ways: Manual and Automatic.

    But to add little additional functionality to this we have built this PrestaShop Combination Activate/Deactivate module with the help of which admin can change the status of the existing combinations.

    after quantity section close ‘{% endif %}’ and before ‘<td class=”attribute-actions”>’
    in PrestaShop core file – form_combination.html.twig

    2.  For Module version 4.1.1 and below versions compatible with PrestaShop version V1.7.3.0 and below

    (A.) Add hook in return array and after form->createview()

    In file: /src/PrestaShopBundle/Controller/Admin/CombinationController.php

    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"><code>'displayWkCombinationStatus' => \Hook::exec('displayWkCombinationStatus', array( 'id_product_attribute' => $combinationId, 'edit_product_link' => $this->generateUrl('admin_product_form', array('id' => (new \Product((new \Combination($combinationId))->id_product))->id)) ) ),</code>

    (B.) In File: /src/PrestaShopBundle/Resources/views/Admin/Product/Include/form_combination.html.twig

    Add this hook

    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"><code>{{ displayWkCombinationStatus|raw }}</code>

    after attribute-quantity section and before attribute-actions class in form_combination.html.twig file


    After the successful installation of the module, a new column for status will be added to the Product Combination list.

    So, the default status of the existing combinations will be “Active”.

    Go to Catalog -> Edit Product -> Combinations to view the existing combinations of a particular product.

    Option to activate/deactivate is enabled

    Also, an admin can activate/deactivate the status for the existing combinations.

    Combination is disabled

    Frontend View

    Therefore, only active combinations will be displayed on the product page.

    Disabled combination hidden from product page

    REMEMBER: It is mandatory for at least one combination to be active at any particular time.

    If the admin tries to deactivate ALL combinations of the product, an error message will display as shown in the screenshot below.


    Suppose the default combination is in inactive state. And admin tries to deactivate all the other combinations as well. In this case, the default combination will become active automatically.

    So, this was all about the PrestaShop Combination Activate/Deactivate Module. I hope this document will help you in checking the functionality of the module in a better way.
