How to add images to slideshow. (ver OC 1.5.1.1)
I have pictures 1,2,3,4, of which I would like to make a slideshow.
Is this possible?
If I add the images are displayed below each other. Do not appear as a slideshow.

Step 1: go to "system->design->banner" and add a couple of images to a banner and give it a name. Let's say you name it "slideshow".
Step 2:go to "Home->Modules->Slideshow " and add the banner you just added.
All done!

Well done :-)
Thx
I know why the banners to be displayed incorrectly. Modules -- slideshow --- banners :-) - here was a mistake.

One more question.
Can I change the transmission rate, or how to change the slide show? (for example - how in NivoSlider)

the default nivo-slider bundled with opencart won't easily let you do that.

if your are into coding / manipulating your opencart core files, check out:
catalog/view/theme/default/template/module/slideshow.tpl
and edit following section within the file:

Code: Select all

$(document).ready(function() {
	$('#slideshow<?php echo $module; ?>').nivoSlider();
});
to

Code: Select all

$(document).ready(function() {
	$('#slideshow<?php echo $module; ?>').nivoSlider({
		###########
	});
});
where ########### stands for whatever option you want for your slider. (list of option see here). drawback, whatever you change here, will be set for all your sliders, regardless where you use them.

alternatively you could check out my commercial module (see link in my signature) which gives you the power to manipulate your slideshow in many ways, set different sliders, select from transition effects and so on ...
