Multiple images

Swapping between the main product image and thumbnail images is a standard feature of our Zen Cart image zoom tools (Magic Zoom Plus, Magic Zoom & Magic Thumb). But what happens when you have lots of images for the same product? An easy way to keep thumbnail images contained is to use Magic Scroll.

Magic Scroll allows customers to scroll through each product image using arrows. It's the perfect way to keep any product page layout looking slick.

The example below shows Magic Zoom Plus combined with Magic Scroll:

To achieve this look, simply:

  1. Install and buy Magic Zoom Plus for Zen Cart.
  2. Activate Magic Scroll option on the Magic Zoom Plus settings page in Zen Cart.

    b) Click 'Download/View' button next to your Magic Zoom Plus order.
    c) Click orange button: Purchase Magic Scroll 35% discount (pay £18.85 instead of £29).
    d) Follow payment process.
  4. Download magicscroll.js file from your license and upload to /includes/templates/YOUR-TEMPLATE-NAME/jscript/magicscroll.js on your server.
  5. Clear browser cache. The 'Trial version' message will disappear.

Customer reviews

Installation instructions could use some tweaking
The only reason not to give this a five star rating is that I found the instructions for going from the free trial to the full working version confusing. Even worse, one of the employees, in an email conversation, told me that what I was trying to do wouldn't work, even though I had carefully followed the instructions on their website. Another employee of the company confirmed that what I was doing was correct, but that I had the wrong source for the file I was using. Once I had the correct file and uploaded that, everything worked very well.
