Multiple images

Swapping between many images is already a standard feature in Magic Touch™. But if you have lots of images, the page can look complicated.

Make your thumbnails look slick and organised with Magic Scroll™ for Magento. It neatly contains the images adds arrows to slide between them. Example:

  1. Simply activate Magic Scroll™ on the Magento options page (screenshot).
  2. To remove the "Please upgrade" text, buy a license and overwrite the /skin/frontend/[your_interface]/[your_theme]/js/magicscroll.js file with that from your licensed version.


You can change the language of the message and loading text like so:

  1. Find the locale folder for the language you wish to change e.g. /app/locale/en_US.
  2. Open the file Mage_Api.csv into the editor and insert these lines at the and of the file:

    "MagicTouch_Message","Write your message here"

    "MagicTouch_LoadingText","Write your message here"

  3. Continue these steps for each locale you wish to change.
