- To remove the "Please upgrade" text, buy a license and overwrite the /modules/mod_virtuemart_magiczoom/core/magicscroll.js file with that from your licensed version.
To customize colors and borders, edit the magiczoom.css file located in /media/plg_system_vmmagiczoom/magiczoom.css. Also, look at the customization guide.
Do your products come in different colours or styles?
Magic Zoom works with VirtueMart product attributes out of the box.
Each product may have "child" products each with different images.
When your customers select a child product, the gallery updates to reveal specific images.
Whether you choose radio, dropdown menu or swatch thumbnails - product attributes is a perfect way to show customers your product range.
