    Default ACoin Homepage Slider Support

    I am releasing a new module for everyone to use. I put it together awhile ago after not being able to find too many home sliders that I liked

    ACoin Zen Cart Homepage Slider
    Demo Found Here


    * Professional Home Page Slider for Zen Cart
    * Adjustable height and width
    * Slider description on each image slider
    * Multiple transition effects.
    * No changes to core files

    The template package can be downloaded in the Addons marketplace here:

    nice work.
    i assume there is a administration back end to that ?
    how do you add images with anchor tags ?

    is it compatible for version 139h?

    Default Re: ACoin Homepage Slider Support

    I recently installed this ACoin Homepage Slider, on my local server using version 150.
    It was a very easy one to install, however the pictures do not show up. I am just using the classic template to see how it works. I do notice that the revolving pics are moving by seeing the small indicator gifs below where the pictures should be, moving.
    The (stock) images were put into: includes/templates/classic/images
    Any ideas on why everything seams to be working except the images do not show up.

    In your define_main_page.php it looks like the following changes need to be made, I have submitted an update but in the mean time you can change the following

    Each image file path had a "/" that should be removed at the beginning so replace this
    Code:
    <img src='/includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/images/slide3.jpg' >
    with this
    Code:
    <img src='includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/images/slide3.jpg' >
    On each image file path so the whole thing will look like this
    Code:
    <div id='coin-slider'>
        <a href="http://www.brandonturpin.com" target="_blank">
            <img src='includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/images/slide1.jpg' >
            <span>
                Description for slide1 - edit in includes > languages > english > html_includes > YOUR_TEMPLATE > define_main_page.php
            </span>
        </a>
        <a href="http://www.brandonturpin.com">
            <img src='includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/images/slide2.jpg' >
            <span>
                Description for slide2 - edit in includes > languages > english > html_includes > YOUR_TEMPLATE > define_main_page.php
            </span>
        </a>
        <a href="http://www.brandonturpin.com">
            <img src='includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/images/slide3.jpg' >
            <span>
                Description for slide3 - edit in includes > languages > english > html_includes > YOUR_TEMPLATE > define_main_page.php
            </span>
        </a>
    
        <a href="http://www.brandonturpin.com">
            <img src='includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/images/slide4.jpg' >
            <span>
                Description for slide4 - edit in includes > languages > english > html_includes > YOUR_TEMPLATE > define_main_page.php
            </span>
        </a>
    </div>
    You also want to make sure you update the YOUR_TEMPLATE to your template name in this case would be classic.

    Let me know if you are able to get that fixes, sorry about the hiccup :-/

    Also while looking it over I noticed that there was another update that needed to be done. Below the anchor tags on define_main_page.php ther is the JS script with the slider effects and the word height is misspelled and leading the slider to be extra tall.

    change
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
       $(document).ready(function() {
        $('#coin-slider').coinslider({ width: 500, heignt: 200, navigation: true, delay: 5000 });
        });
    </script>
    to
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
       $(document).ready(function() {
        $('#coin-slider').coinslider({ width: 500, height: 200, navigation: true, delay: 5000 });
        });
    </script>

    Thanks, as of right now there is not a back end and to add images you just add another anchor tag on the define_main_page.php its pretty basic right now but works

    It is compatible with 1.3.x as there is no back end right now

    Works perfectly with the code changes. One of the easiest addons that I worked with. Thanks.

    I also noticed that I had to delete:
    <span>
    Description for slide4 - edit in includes > languages > english > html_includes > YOUR_TEMPLATE > define_main_page.php
    </span>


    Under each image so it does not show in the bottom of each image.

    Glad that it worked for you, the sections

    <span>
    Description for slide4 - edit in includes > languages > english > html_includes > YOUR_TEMPLATE > define_main_page.php
    </span>
    are created as a description for the image, you can put any text here if you would like and it shows as a description on the slide.

    Idea or Suggestion Re: ACoin Homepage Slider Support

    WORKS GREAT "Like"

    Having a little trouble with the over shadowed text line. It seems to be 5 to 10 pixels narrower than the images.

    I have
    Code:
        $('#coin-slider').coinslider({ width: 580, heignt: 280, navigation: true, delay: 5000 });
        });
    </script><!-- Effects to place in JS above
    width: 580, // width of slider panel
    height: 280, // height of slider panel
    Is there somewhere else that I need to adjust these widths?
