Sorry for noob question but i'm trying to install the addon, i installed the JcM carousel footer and header but where is the general "Specials" module located? Is there no standard "Specials" module where you can edit the prices in Frozen BS 2.3.4?  I found a navbar module called "Special offers" but that doesn't do much for me. So installed this addon and did everything the instructions said but where do i actually edit the prices?

The add-on is not controling the prices they are done by the main code, just make a special as normal by going to admin and adding a product to specials.

Would this add-on be able to be show on the product_info page rather than the main index page? Looks exactly like the thing I'm looking for.. Does it work with money off specials or is it just for discount percentage offers?


Ah, the world wide web. What a wonderful place.

Sure if you recode it to be a product info add-on.

Not sure what you mean, it uses the stock osC specials to display the discount applied.

Thanks, sorry, ignore my second question. Got it to show on my product Info page.. However, stylesheets for owlcarousel don't seem to be loading. I will have a look into it deeper as it's probably my mistake. Great add on. 😊

Hmmmm.... Still can't get owl.carousel.css or owl.theme.default.css to load through header_tags/ht_jcm_owl_carousel2_js.php. Products are showing up but stacking one under another and no slides or transitions. Tried to insert the links manually and they do appear in the source but then the add on just displays the title bar and no products. Using CE Frozen. Any ideas on why? All I changed was installing the 'index' module files into 'Product_info'.

Make sure you have the latest version and make sure you use the right files for your site. Instlled and working fine on Phoenix check it out custom test site

You also need to be sure you have both the header tags installed.

Sorry if you customise the code your on your own. I just don't have the time to debug other peoples code. You can not just install them into product_info you would neeed to make a new add-on for product info. I would recomend asking one of the developers to mod the add-on for you if you must have it on product info page.

Happy to take a look and give pointers but the re-coding up to you. If you have it displaying then you have most of the hard work done. Just take your time.

@JcMagpie got your excellent add-on to work perfectly and thanks for you help and advice. What I do notice is if you have only a small number of items on special, the products get repeated. At the moment I have 1 product on special and it's repeated across all 4 slots. Is there a way to limit the products that display so as not to repeat?

It's a limitation of the code, so you can set number of products to spin in admin, but the number displayed are a function of the settings in the js script for owl carousell, the number shown changes with screen size so it's not easly changable.

Your options?

1) turn off scroll so its a static display

2) add more special offer 😊

3) change the owl2 settings to show only one on a large screen.

ok, thanks for replying quickly. Is there any way to stop it repeating if there is just one product as a special?

Sorry, I didn't explain that well. Currently I have 1 special offer and the same offer is repeated  4 times. I have turned off 'auto-play'. I just need it to display the correct amount of specials. Thanks

only way to do that is to limit the diaply you hav to edit the script.

3) change the owl2 settings to show only one on a large screen. In .....       includes/modules/content/index/templates/specials_products_carousel.php

change the 4 to 1,  now you will have one large dispaly. Sorry that's the limitations of the code. To do more you would need to change the width from 12 to 4 and Play with all the settings.

 

owl.owlCarousel({
      
         responsive:{	
                  0:{
                       items:1
                         },

                  600:{
                       items:2
                          },

                  1000:{
                        items:4

right I see. So just to clarify, it will display 4 items even though there is only one special offer? At the moment there is one special offer being repeated 4 times. It's no problem if I have 4 specials. Sorry I'm not explaining myself very well am I?

😂 i think were going round in circles or I'm missing something. Yes by default the width is set by the site so it will show 4 items to fit screen as screen size changes it will reduce in size and the number of items displayed drops. So it's not posiable to hack to make it show just one and not be responsive. As I said change the script to show just one on large screen and you will see only one.

if you look at your site on mobile you will see it only shows one.
