Hi everybody (first post here), I've been trying Magento 1.9 display a different set of thumbnail images for every option in the color swatch, in a configurable product, but with no success.
For example, there are different colors for a single shoes model, (a single product) and for every color, there is a set of five photographs (different perspectives, of course), so I associated those photographs to a single product, and then I associated that single product to a configurable product (with just a single picture).
It doesn't work. Just one picture for every single color is showed as a base image in the product page, but always the thumbnail corresponding with the configurable product.
In the Magento 1.9 demo database an opposite approach is used (which I guess the right path): all the product with different colors goes with configurable product, while the single procuct has just one image... but it doesn't work either to my case.
What I expect is that Magento display the five pictures from the single product with a specific color picked by the user (in the same way as Amazon does it).
