To add a line between products, you could probably add a border to the right of each image in the CSS. Adding the product name would take modifications to the CSS, the scroller Javascript, and some PHP to retrieve the names. Not a simple task.

Hi
I checked through the install instructions, and could not find that reference, but i copied the files up to that folder anyway, and still got the same error,

I'll do it when i get back in and upload a screenshot

Hi Jim,

Great add-on! Easy to use and a simple installation.

I was wondering whether it's possible to change the height of the banner, if so, how would i go about achieving this?

Thanks in advance,
Yousef

See the User's Manual Appendix, section A.1. The stylesheet is marked /* Banner height */ where you need to make the changes (two places.)

Is there any way to add a border around the banner? Also, can text be added to the banner to show what the banner is displaying on a certain image?

Thanks in advance,
Yousef

You should be able to add a border to the #bannerRotator specification in the stylesheet. Or just add it to your banner images.

The Banner Rotator uses the osCommerce Banner Manager to set banners. There's no text associated with those banners, so adding that would mean modifying the Banner Manager as well as the Banner Rotator module. That's a lot of work. It would be a lot easier to just add the test to your banner images.

Regards
Jim

Hi Jim,

Every time i try editing the option for the scroller in the admin panel, it won't let me. I click the Edit button and then it doesn't do anything. How would i fix this?

Thanks in advance,
Yousef

You've done something wrong in the installation. Check that you have uploaded all of the files to the correct locations.

Problem solved, had one file missing.

Is there any way to change the speed of how quickly an image appears? I'd prefer it to be a little slower.

Thanks in advance,
Yousef

Which image? The faders are controlled by Javascript, so yes, but it's a different script depending on the image set.

Jim... This add on is fabulous! Have an issue with the banner rotator, i am sure it is something i am not doing correctly. Install seems fine, have made the group "rotator" in both the tools- banner manager and in modules- front page. The issue is adding the banner images. Built four default size 620 x 150 pixel test images using adobe illustrator, exporting as .png files, then uploading to catalog/images/banner directory, as this is where I found the two test files. I am confused as to how to add the images using the tools- banner manager. What I get is the control button and the square with the red X on the browser page. Tried adding the four images files to catalog/images/banner/rotator directory, to no avail. I named my test images banner1 banner2..etc. What am i doing wrong?

You have to either upload the banner images using the Banner Manager or enter the exact path to the banner images. It's likely that you are not giving the Banner Manager the correct path.

Figured it out... Realized each image becomes a new banner in banner manager, along with it needed the url of the web page. next dumb question which file allows me to comment out the navigation bar?

If there was an award for the most knowledgeable/helpful guy with OS Commerce... it would be yours, hands down!!!

Thanks again,

Timmy C

If you mean the Breadcrumb trail, that's in catalog/includes/header.php. Removing that is usually a very bad idea. Customers depend on navigation aids like that to find products, and may get confused and leave if they can't find what they're used to.

If you want to make changes to the way your site works, I suggest that you look at what the major retailers are doing. Don't necessarily depend on your competitors, since they may not have a clue. Look at sites that are very successful. If the successful sites all do it, it's probably a good idea.

Jim
