FancyZoom (simple lightbox with gallery)

A simple FancyZoom lightbox with gallery option. Offers handy configuration settings. Works out of the box for default themes. Uses Magento's built-in prototype.js. No jQuery required.


Install the Magento key via your /downloader system.


Go to System > Configuration > Morningtime > FancyZoom.

Review the default settings.


If your theme resides outside of the app/design/frontend/default folder, then you must copy the theme and skin files to your custom theme.

Find the following files and copy them to your custom theme:

  • /app/design/frontend/default/default/layout/morningtime
  • /app/design/frontend/default/default/template/morningtime

Also copy the skin files:

  • /skin/frontend/default/default/js/fancyzoom.js
  • /skin/frontend/default/default/css/fancyzoom.cs
  • /skin/frontend/default/default/images/fancyzoom/*

Why you don't put the module files in app|skin/base?

If you move the modules files from app/[...]/default to app/[...]/base and skin/[...]/default to skin/[...]/base it will work out of the box with custom themes ;) Thank you!
Asked by: ivanaugutsobd

Does it work with v1.8?

Same question as above but on a fresh v1.8. Does it work seamlessly? I've had so many issues with this version I want to make sure I don't come across other issues with extensions. Thanks
Asked by: secondcanvas

Didnt work after updating to Magento 1.8

After update to 1.8 version, Gallery stopt to open. All the other modules and themes are the same. Might it need on 1.8 some additional changes in configuration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yet for 1.702 This extension is the best one I have found for my store. The core extension loads slow and sometimes not at all. I tried others with the same results. This extension loads my images fast and the gallery feature is awesome. I highly recommend this extension. Simply follow installation instructions provided. Did not review support because did not need support!

Rated out of 5 by from Love the lean and mean approach of this module. However, there are a few options I would like to see included to make this a -perfect- add on: - ability to limit widht and height of the overlay to percentages of the screen - prev next arrows to hit the next image

Rated out of 5 by from I was able to install everything and clear cache but when I click on the product image in the product page nothing happens. And when I click on a thumbnail image below the product image nothing happens. What can I do?

Rated out of 5 by from Good little extension. Two things missing though to make it GREAT. 1) Next/Prev Buttons in lightbox 2) Main image change on mouse rollover. Right now it just displays the same default image all the time and the only way to see the rest is to click on them and see them in the pop-up window. If anyone knows how to add these features to the current version manually, I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks.
