Get the product carousel you wanted.
Sooner or later, you’ll want to feature your product categories with images in a carousel or slider. Magento hasn’t made it easy. Until now.
Clients have consistently requested the ability to easily add category-based image carousels of their products on their Magento sites. They’d like to have two or three stacks of images based on category types.
Magento doesn’t make it easy to bring data up from the database and get it to appear correctly on the front end in this manner, nor are there other plugins that achieve this that are easy to use.
We created a plugin that allows users to create category-based image carousels easily, building in easy-to-use features and powerful customization options.
How It Works
On your category pages, the plugin adds a field where you can specify the image you would like for that category. When configuring the widget to create a carousel, you’ll only see the categories that have images designated. This prevents blank images in the carousel on the frontend.
Instead of limiting yourself to plugins that only deal with store functionality, inventory, or ORM management, you can focus on the frontend aspect of how your store displays.
Plenty Of Customization
The key to a flexible Magento plugin is one that fits the needs of a variety of scenarios. Our Slick Category Carousel plugin has several customization options that each user can configure to fit what they need. A few of these options include:
- Scroll speed
- Custom images
- Default arrows
The Slick Slider Carousel Plugin, with its robust custom options, is as easy or as complex as you want it to be.
Easy Plugin Setup
Because the plugin is located in Magento Connect, installation is easy. Simply download the plugin from Magento Connect. Paste the key you receive upon purchase in your Magento store, and Magento will take care of the rest.
You can create as many carousels as you want with as many categories as you need.
