Example Usage

To display on the Virtuemart category pages, displaying the top selling products in each currently viewed category.

  • Set the 'show type' parameter to 'most popular products'
  • Set the 'category type' parameter to 'current category'
  • You may want to set the 'max images per product' parameter to 1, so that one image per product is shown
  • On the 'display options' tab, set 'show on all pages' to 'no', and 'show on category pages' to 'yes'

To display a slideshow of multiple images for the currently viewed product

  • Set the 'show type' parameter to 'current product'
  • Set the 'category type' parameter to 'all categories'
  • You may want to set the 'max images per product' parameter to a largish number so that all the product images can be displayed
  • On the 'display options' tab, set 'show on all pages' to 'no', and 'show on product pages' to 'yes'

To display a slideshow of selected products on non-virtuemart pages (for example your site front page)

  • Set the 'show type' parameter to 'listed products'
  • List the product ids in the list box; you can find the product id in the virtuemart product manager, it is the number in the right hand column, under 'id'
  • Set the 'category type' parameter to 'all categories'
  • You may want to set the 'max images per product' parameter to 1, so that one image per product is shown
  • On the 'display options' tab, set 'show on all pages' to 'yes', 'show on category pages' and 'show on product pages' to 'no'

 

 

System Requirements

The module requires Joomla 2.5.x and Virtuemart 2.0.x. The transition effects also require a web browser that supports the canvas element, such as Internet Explorer 9, Firefox, or Chrome. Visitors who do not have a compatible browser will see the same slideshow but with a simple fade transition.

The module uses the mootools javascript library, which is native to Joomla!. Hence it does not require any external javascript library. It can co-exist without conflict with other extensions that use other libraries such as JQuery.
