    {{{ stylesheet ‘/assets/css/invoice.css’ }}}

Once an option rule changes the image, you can now click back to a thumbnail image and it will load selected image and can be zoomed. You can then re-select another option change rule and it will activate that image rule which can be zoomed as well. Used same jQuery code fix from PW version 2.1.6

  • THEME-1838: Issue: Category List View displays inline styling with the product description. I have not been able to replicate this issue. This page on our demo store has a product that has inline styling that does not have this issue in list view: It is this product: Red Line Torque Converter.
