Cloud Zoom for Joomla Plugin

cloudzoom_thumbnail

Cloud Zoom is a jQuery image zoom plugin, a comparable alternative to products such as Magic Zoom.

I integrated such a nice plugin for Joomla. This plugin works by enclosing A tag having IMG tag like this (the example has a space after the word "cloudzoom" but you don't put the space between the brackets when you put it):

{cloudzoom }
<a href="/images/stories/big_image.jpg">
    <img title="Sample Image" src="/images/stories/thumbnail.jpg" />
</a>
{/cloudzoom }

You can also enable the plugin by adding the class "cloud-zoom" to A tag instead of enclosing it (again, you don't put the space between the brackets when you put it):

{cloudzoom }{/cloudzoom }
<a href="/images/stories/big_image.jpg" class="cloud-zoom">
    <img title="Sample Image 1" src="/images/stories/thumbnail.jpg" />
</a><br />
<a href="/images/stories/big_image.jpg" class="cloud-zoom">
    <img title="Sample Image 2" src="/images/stories/thumbnail.jpg" />
</a><br />

Browsers I have tested:

  • IE 8
  • Firefox 3
  • Safari
  • Chrome

      Hi there, I have not tested the extension on IE9. I don't plan to support the browser while it is beta at least.

      Hi there, Sorry for late reply. I think you need a developer but it is possible to do.

    Hi,

    great script, works perfectly. The joomla plugin needed some tweaks though to work with J2.5 - but biggest of all, it misses initialising the gallery - broke my head over why the thumbs weren't working for a day before it occurred to me. Please fix that for future users :)

    Oh and integration with VM is definitely possible - VM needs some tweaking but the plugin, barring the ones mentioned above - none :)

    Overall, a job well done!

    I installed both the Joomla 2.5 plugin and the JQuery Module (jquery 1.6.2) but the plugin doesn't work. I tested in FF, Crome and Explorer.
    I'm sure CSS and javascript are correctly loaded in the page but I don't see cursor pointer, moving lens square and zoom image.
    What could be the problem?
