    Hi @jekax – could you clarify what you mean by a “zoom” plugin? Storefront and WooCommerce by default come with hover/click zoom functionality already. There’s no need for an extra plugin. I made a quick screencast of what’s happening by default:

    Can you check it please in real time? Theme – Storefront.
    Maybe I am doing something different.

    Hi there, I’ve had a look at your site and Storefront is installed, but no WooCommerce. It’s not entirely clear to me what you’re trying to do on the page you shared.

    Can you suggest me any zoom plugin for this theme? I have tried a couple from WP store, they are not working ( As I understand there is a compatibility issue.

    I can sincerely recommend WP Image Zoom. 3 years ago on top of extensive CSS I had to hack through JS files of this plugin to make it work decently. I downloaded new version (free one) a few weeks ago, because old one was not compatible with Woocommerce since a long time and now I can make all needed modifications, especially gallery thumbnails formatting through CSS in child theme.

    Remember to turn off woocommerce lightbox setting.

    Hey @jekax – sorry for the slow response. If you are okay with working with this, then installing Jetpack will allow you to show the images in a lightbox. Here’s the document that explains how to do that:

    Given that this question is not part of Storefront core, I’m going to also mark this thread as resolved.
