Image slideshows are an increasingly popular component for websites. This slider is installed on the home page. Installation adds configuration fields in admin with a number of really nice features including:
The ability to turn the slideshow on or off
The ability to display captions or not
Adjust the width and height of the slideshow to suit your needs
Sixteen transitional effects to choose from including random
Control speed and pause times, pause on hoover
See a working example here
Slideshow images are uploaded via admin utilizing the built-in zen cart banner manager system. The images can be linked to a category, linked to a specific product, linked to any page on your site or not linked at all.
Add up to 10 images to the sldeshow. That amount can be extended by adding additional images to the same group so the images swap out on page refresh.
I will add the first five images for you so you have an example to go by. You provide the images. They will need to be the same size or larger than the size of the slideshow. I will let you know the sizing.
It looks great and is so easy to use. There's no code to be fiddling with and no need to upload images via ftp!
