Support thread for JcM Header Carousel Banner V1.0 Phoenix

Recommended Posts

This is a header add-on that lets you place a carousel banner at the top of your site.

This makes use of the stock banner manager that comes with osC. It will show 4 banners.

It requires core changes so only use if you are happy to make these. A modification is required on the admin side to display the banner id’s in the banner manager so you can select which to display. You can do a file compare or simply replace the files with those provided.

In public_html/admin/banner_manager.php around line 320 find

<td class="dataTableHeadingContent" align="right"><?php echo TABLE_HEADING_GROUPS; ?></td>

and below this add,

<td class="dataTableHeadingContent" align="right"><?php echo TABLE_HEADING_ID; ?></td>

around line 349 find

<td class="dataTableContent" align="right"><?php echo $banners['banners_group']; ?></td>

and below this add,

<td class="dataTableContent" align="right"><?php echo $banners['banners_id']; ?></td>

Then in /public_html/admin/includes/languages/english/banner_manager.php

at the end of the file just before the ?>


define('TABLE_HEADING_ID', 'Banner ID');

That’s it for the core changes. Now simply install and turn on like any other add-on.

Once it’s installed simply go to admin tools/banner manager and add your banners. Make sure to add it to the header group or it will not work. These can be text or images just follow instructions in admin. Remember to add your URL link for each banner or you will get a 404 error.

Select the banner id’s to be shown in the new banner manger and enter them in admin. These are the banners that will then be displayed in the carousel.

The overlay text for each banner can be set in the language file.

You can also select which pages it is to be shown on.

That’s it enjoy.

It has only been tested on Phoenix only.

Can be seen working on this custom test site
