That page has a lot going on. It's possibly some sort of conflict, and/or just the load weight of the page. I had trouble reproducing it. The easiest way was to use Firefox and do a Ctrl/F5 (clear cache and reload). It worked fine in IE, initially and with or without clearing the cache. Opera had the problem on initial load, but clearing the cache would not allow me to duplicate the problem (Opera may keep some scripts in cache even while clearing images and page text).

So Firefox appears to be the only browser that can even reliably show the problem.

I tried removing some of the other scripts. I couldn't find the right combo. I also tried putting the init for the zoomer at the end of the page, and then at the beginning - no help either way.

What does work in Firefox, and presumably others where this is a problem, is to replace (document ready):

<script type="text/javascript">jQuery(document).ready(function($){$('#image1').addimagezoom({zoomrange:[3,3],magnifiersize:[350,350],magnifierpos:'right',cursorshade:true,largeimage:'http://www.heavenskateboards.com/home/components/com_virtuemart/shop_image/product/BPHVN_01_4d8c50ebc768f.jpg'})})</script>

with window load:

<script type="text/javascript">jQuery(window).load(function(){jQuery('#image1').addimagezoom({zoomrange:[3,3],magnifiersize:[350,350],magnifierpos:'right',cursorshade:true,largeimage:'http://www.heavenskateboards.com/home/components/com_virtuemart/shop_image/product/BPHVN_01_4d8c50ebc768f.jpg'})})</script>

There are other problems with he page. This shows in all browsers I tested in:

Info: Your browser does not accept cookies. To put products into your cart and purchase them you need to enable cookies.

even though cookies are enabled in them. Also, I get the error (in Firefox, but similar in others):

Error: Slimbox is not defined
Source File: http://www.heavenskateboards.com/home/components/com_virtuemart/fetchscript.php?gzip=0&subdir[0]=/themes/default&file[0]=theme.js&subdir[1]=/js&file[1]=sleight.js&subdir[2]=/js/mootools&file[2]=mootools-release-1.11.js&subdir[3]=/js/mootools&file[3]=mooPrompt.js&subdir[4]=/js/slimbox/js&file[4]=slimbox.js
Line: 129

But I don't think those have anything to do with it.

hey there,
i'm new here and have the same problem with featured image zoomer v1.5

i've tried to change the script like jscheuer1 said, tried to clean up cache and even browsers history. with no effect. the script doesn't work.

here is a sample link:

image zoomer shoult apply to the large product image on the left side of the page.

i don't have any idea, how to fix that. i wonder if there is a conflict with ddmegamenu??

tried to get the script working in ie8 and firefox8...

btw: sorry for my bad english, i usually speak german ;)

You've done a number of things that you didn't have to and there are some things I would tighten up. But to just get it working, add the highlighted to the on page style section as shown:

<style type="text/css">

.magnifyarea{ /* CSS to add shadow to magnified image. Optional */
box-shadow: 5px 5px 7px #818181;
-webkit-box-shadow: 5px 5px 7px #818181;
-moz-box-shadow: 5px 5px 7px #818181;
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.dropShadow(color=#818181, offX=5, offY=5, positive=true);
background: white;
.magnifyarea, .zoomtracker, .zoomstatus, .cursorshade {
z-index: 8;


Of course, at that point you will want to change the highlighted url:

zoomrange: [3, 10],
magnifiersize: [300,300],
magnifierpos: 'right',
cursorshade: true,
largeimage: 'http://i44.tinypic.com/11icnk5.jpg' //<-- No comma after last option!

so that it points to an image that's a larger higher resolution version of the parka. This image should have the same aspect ratio as the 606087.jpg (the parka image) image.

Things I would do to tighten this up are (these are all optional, but should be done together if at all) -

Change the DOCTYPE from:

<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">


<!DOCTYPE html>


<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.4/jquery.min.js"></script>


<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6/jquery.min.js"></script>

Get rid of:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

And change:

If that doesn't fix it, let me know.

BTW, ddadmin says in that thread that he will update the script on the demo page, but he hasn't yet.
