    Is there a way I can add variable attributes to the content description on the search results so it would look like this:

    And if a product doesn’t have any variable attributes, then it would be empty as below:

    Product 1
    Color: Green, Size: XL

    Product 2



    Yes, it is possible. Usually these attributes are either taxonomy terms or custom fields. Using the Advanced title and content fields you can print taxonomies and custom field values to the results.

    In your case, to find the taxonomy names of the variable attributes, you can use the taxonomy list under the General Options -> Sources 2 panel, here:
    In my case the taxonomy name is pa_color (as product attribute color). Now with the advanced fields, you can use that to print out the colors, like so:

    [Color: {_taxonomy_pa_color}]

    If you check the documentation above first, it will make more sense. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Well, I don’t have any attributes in the system.

    All the attributes are based on the variations. So what I would prefer is to pull up all the variation attribute data.

    Not all products have a color for example. So if I hardcode color into search results, several products will have no color listed.

    I have hundreds of products with different variable attributes, so I just want in the results to show any attributes for the variations depending on the product.

    Does that make sense?



    Yes, sure. Well, I had to google around, and maybe there is a way to list those attributes for variations via a custom code. Try adding this custom code to the functions.php in your theme/child theme directory (copy from line 3 only!). Before editing, please make sure to have a full site back-up just in case!

    add_filter('asp_results', 'asp_get_prod_atts_table', 10, 1);
    function asp_get_prod_atts_table($results) {
      foreach ($results as $k => &$r) {
        if ( !isset($r->post_type) || $r->post_type != 'product_variation' )
        $product = wc_get_product($r->id);
        $r->content =  wc_get_formatted_variation( $product->get_variation_attributes(), true ) . '<br>' . $r->content;
      return $results;

    This might not be the best possible solution, but this is the only way to simply list the attributes according to the WooCommerce API.
