How to Create Slider for Homefeatured Products in Prestashop 1.6

Prestashop 1.6 includes bxSlider and it is used in Homeslider module. It is possible to apply it for other modules. In this article I’ll describe how to create slider for homefeatured products, blocknewproducts and top-selling products module on homepage.

Open homefeatured.tpl, blocknweproducts-home.tpl, blockbestsellers-home.tpl files from your theme directory.

Find the code:

We’ll create class for example .bxslider-hometabs for this included product-list.tpl, like this:

Then open your .js file, for example global.js and define settings for this slider:

Set slide width, number of slides, margin, controls.

It’s almost done, you just need to fix css. Set clear:none for the li.first-in-line and li.first-item-of-tablet-line in order to avoid the break of product list:

  12. Hi Enda,
    thanks for the question!
    In Presta 1.7 the process is different indeed. But… Right now we’re writing the new article about it! Subscribe to our blog to stay tuned :)

  13. Thank you. This information is very useful.
    I changed code for home featured product and it is nicely working on Android mobile phone browsers (chrome and default browser). But when I open same site on desktop having browser (firefox, chrome or opera) slider works well till the time I do not hover mouse on the products in slider. As soon as I hover move over products in slider that area becomes grey and remains grey. Every such other products area becomes turns to grey after mouse hover on them all.

    Please suggest me some key point to solve this issue.

  14. Hello, Amit!
    Unfortunately, it’s hard to answer your question without any investigation. I can just suppose that you have a mistake in styles.
    Please, write to our support department to request the detailed inspection: We’ll be happy to assist.

  15. Здравствуйте, можно ли применить это к субкатегориям на страницах категорий?
    Спасибо Вам за полезную информацию!!

  16. I tried to apply the slider to another module; did everything according to the instruction.
    The items aligned the way I wanted, but there are still no scroller element.

  17. Aleksey, controls may exist, but be not visible due to overflow. Try to take a look if controls exist in web page code. Anyway should see the link to say definitely.
