Product Slider module is a good solution to arrange and present products on your Magento store. The module allows creating several types of sliders which can display either specific custom products or special Magento product types including New products, Category products, Discount products etc.

There are no limits or bounds on the number of sliders you can create. All products are supported which makes it possible to create several sliders of various types even on a single page and arrange them in the most convenient way to fit your page.

Moreover, each slider can show as many products as you want, so you will not have any problems with arranging your page space.

To fit all possible needs of our customers we tried to supply the module with a set of advanced settings, which let you configure not only the number of products per slide and their sorting direction, but even control image dimensions to adjust sliders to your frontend style and design.


How to Use

After you created and enabled sliders they will appear on the store frontend on the locations you specified:

How to Configure

To enable and configure the module log into your Magento admin panel and go to System -> Configuration -> Product Slider.

The module has a wide set of options to configure, so, let’s have a look at each of them to see how it works.

Default Configuration

These are default slider settings which are applied to all sliders that do not have any custom settings specified. The section offers the following settings for configuration:

  • Enable for Frontend – enable the module to make your sliders appear on the frontend;
  • Max Items Qty – number of products which will be visible on a slider at a time;
  • Button position – the position of slider arrow button;
  • Scroll Speed – scroll speed set in milliseconds;
  • Scroll type – specify whether items in a slider will be scrolled by item, by page or automatically. Automatic scrolling uses special algorithm which scrolls products depending on their quantity in a slider: if you have defined only a few items to show up in a slider, then they will be scrolled one by one. Yet, more items will be scrolled by page.
  • Auto Scroll – enable to make items scroll automatically;
  • Delay – an Auto Scroll setting, define the delay between previous and next scroll.

The next 7 sections have identical settings which include the following configurations:

  • Products count – the maximum number of products applied to a slider;
  • Sorting direction – select to display products either in ascending or descending order;
  • Sort by – specify the attribute which will serve as a sorting rule to items in a slider.
