Topic: Product Slider Required

Not on topic but I'm looking for a product slider.

I've tried playing with SimpleViewer but it won't give me what I need.

Is it possible with SimpleViewer or one of the other products?

What's a product slider?

Re: Product Slider Required

Basically a group of thumbnails of product images and descriptions with a left and right arrow and auto scroll.

These then link through to the products.

I've got part way towards what I wanted but I cant put any text on with the images.

I suppose I could edit an image to include text.

Re: Product Slider Required

You should be able to build that with SimpleViewer-Pro. You can add text over the images by setting the 'captionPosition' option to "OVERLAY_BOTTOM": http://www.simpleviewer.net/simpleviewe … ml#caption

Re: Product Slider Required

You are using the thumbnails for the main image - that's interesting smile You can't show text on thumbnails.

I was thinking you would use the main image with the imageTransitionType set to 'SLIDE'.
