Integrating a product zoom.

I have some Jquery coding for making a product zoom. It adds a magnifying glass effect. Is there any way I can incorporate this into Powerstore so when people view a product they can view the image close up?

Zoom

I've attached a quick sample of the zoom effect I would want to use.... This will be used for a jewelry company so seeing close ups is important to them. Thanks....

Yes, you should be able to add it to the powerstore page by following the zoom documentation. The page you would edit is at: /webassist/plugins/catalog/details.php.

If you need help, this is something we could add in a premier support ticket. If you want you can sign up for it here: http://www.webassist.com/premier_request.php

Zoom

I've opened that PHP page, any idea where I would add the info from my sample files? Thanks for your help. This would be a very useful feature for Powerstore. I've been asked this several times...

I'm assuming the code would replace the image that is on that page, but each zoom works a little differently.

Is there a way to get more specific? Sorry I'm not a PHP developer... How would I apply it to each product? Would there be a different page that I would have to add the code for each product zoom?

I'm afraid this is beyond the scope of standard support. This is something we can help with in a premier support ticket.

You wouldn't need php to do it probably. Zoom elements are usually done with javascript. I'd do a google search for a zoom library that uses mootools (since powerstore already uses the mootools library) and then follow their documentation for how to add it to the page.

I haven't used it, so I can't recommend it. I'd try to find a free one though or at least one that doesn't charge per site.
