Problem after activating ColorSwatch Extension

after activating colorswatch extension I can not access any product page.
Products with other color thumbnails (from similar products) are displayed correctly in any category and product list,
but when selecting the product I am getting a white screen with the menu and nothing else.
additionally my logo is disappeared (the standard magento logo appears) and colors (cart image etc) are temporarily changing to default (red) although selected profile is "Turquoise".

Please note that when colorswatch is not activated and product page is displayed, shoe sizes are displayed in a dropdown mode instead of the selecting boxes of the sample-quickstart site

Could anybody help me?

Hi izyshoes,

did you install quickstart package or the theme and extensions separately ? I just took a look at your source code via FTP there i saw only two folder under httpdocs/magento , please let me know where your magento root folder is located so I can check this further.

Hi Sherlock Holmes,
thank you for your help.
It is true, I have a multidomain installation in root.
My magento installation is under folder "fashiontherapy/magento". I have installed magento 1.8.1 from scratch in this directory.
I have a separate installation of quickstart under "fashiontherapy/magento-sporty-sample" used only as reference.

Great Job,
Thanks a lot for your assistance. I appreciate a lot your help to my other threads too.

Could you tell me the kind of change in view.phtml in order to file it and reuse it after future upgrades of your theme?

Hi Georgios,

I opened that file and modify code block below:

PHP Code:

 $attrcode Mage::getModel('eav/entity_attribute')->load(150)->getAttributeCode(); 


PHP Code:


The value 150 is your used size’s attribute code. Hope it helps.
