Recently we’ve started redesigning some Prestashop modules. The first module we’re upgrading is ProduсtTabs. The module allows creating and adding extra tabs on the product page as well as displaying additional information about most important products in the store. So let’s consider how to upgrade it to CMS 1.7. (more…)
Prestashop Home Carousel allows you to draw attention of your potential customers to your products. One of the main design flaws in internet stores, homepage sliders is a tried and effective way to increase sales, not to mention site’s improved usability. The module has several sliders to choose from and add to the homepage: Categories, New and Featured products, Bestsellers and Items on sale. Products are added to the New, Featured and Bestselling sliders automatically. You may select one carousel or many sliders to be displayed at once.
- Home carousels
- Many types of sliders
- Automatically added content
- Possibility of displaying the content of the selected categories
- Links to the product pages and categories in the slider
How can you configure and use it?
Log in to the back-office, and we will show you how to configure the module step by step.
Go to Modules -> Carousel Slider -> Configure.
Category images slider displays categories you select. In order to add a category to this slider, go to Catalog -> Categories -> [edit the category]. In the Image field, add the picture. All the categories with pictures will be displayed in this slider, if enabled.
In the Image type drop-down, select the image type that will be displayed in the slider.
In the Featured slider, all the featured products are displayed. In order to make a product featured, edit it in Catalog -> Products. In the Associations tab, select the Home Associated Category.
In the New slider, all the newly added products are displayed.
