The plugin default behaviour implies for all product thumbanails to be shown in a classic mode, as provided from WooCommerce. However, you can choose to show them with the “Slider” typology or completely hide them.

When “Use custom HTML thumbnails” option is active, the plugin use its own custom template to show product images in the quick view, instead of WooCommerce standard ones. This lets you avoid possible layout issues, as often themes overwrite WooCommerce templates, causing quick view contents to be displayed irregularly.

Image zoom

If you are using YITH WooCommerce Zoom Magnifier, you can enable zoom function on the product image of quick view window by activating “Enable image zoom” option.
