How To Disable Magnifying Glass Effects On WooCommerce Products’ Images Without Using Plugin

If you go to any stores, you can find that if you hover the product’s images, there is a magnifier appears to help you view the products better. WooCommerce supports this feature too. However, I personally don’t like the default effects of WooCommerce:

Original image:

woocommerce original image

Product image on hover:

woocommerce with magnifier when hover

So, if you are like me, you may wonder: how can I disable this effect? It turns out very simple.

How To Disable Magnifying Glass Effects On WooCommerce

Now, all you need to do is to go to Appearance -> Editor and put the following code at the bottom of your functions.php file

add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'bc_remove_magnifier', 100 );

function bc_remove_magnifier() {
remove_theme_support( 'wc-product-gallery-zoom' );

If you view the product image now and hover over the image, the effects are now removed.


As you can see, if you don’t like the default behavior that WooCommerce gives to products image on being hovered, removing it is quite simple. This tip is also useful if you are making a custom plugin to add a better magnifying effect to the products’ images.
