About product siblings

Display product images as swatches

Palo Alto includes the ability to link directly to other products as product swatches. The result is rich product detail pages that include swatches with images that represent each variant option.

This feature is called siblings. When you view a siblings product, only the images associated with that variant option, plus product details, and prices for the variant are shown:

Swatch images

Each product sibling appears automatically as a swatch:

Unique product images

Only product images for that color style are shown:

Individual products

Each sibling is an individual product. Using Shopify's metaobjects, Palo Alto will connect these products together and auto-generate the swatch images.
