Promo Minic slider (Promokit Edition)

This nice slider was developed by Minic Studio. Guys have done a great work and we are glad to welcome this excellent module.

We have also added Promo section in this module. So in our version you will find this slider plus promo section (block with 4 products)

Slider you can configure with the back-office (Modules>Promo minic slider, configure).

Promo section you can choose products that will be shown in the promo section - specials 1), featured or new. You can't set a specific product to be displayed though. It will always display only the latest product that was marked as new or discounted.

Here you can find the info how to set product status to New http://www.prestashop.com/forums/topic/164393-setting-a-product-status-to-new/

Featured products are the items which are placed in the root Home category. To make a product featured, you need to go to the BO > Catalog > Products, pick a product and click Edit. Then open the “Association” tab and select the “Home” category.

Here you can find full documentation for this slider: minicslideruserguide.pdf

Sequence Minic slider

This module allows you to animate each of the slide layer. It is based on the sequencejs slider and has powerful customization opportunities. Just look at the slider demo to see what kind of animations is available for you. All this you can create in the back office.

Images Settings

Main image will be used as background for the slide composition. You can upload additional images. Each image has following settings:

  • Position before showing this is an image position with regard to the slider viewport before the slide will be shown.
  • Position on showing this is an image position with regard to the slider viewport when the slide is shown.
  • Position after showing this is an image position with regard to the slider viewport after the slide was shown.

- “top”, “left” are the values in percentage. For example left:30% means the position of an image will be on the left on 30% of viewport width. - “duration” is the duration of image animation from one position to another. - “rotation” is the rotation of image in the current position. - “opacity” is the opacity value in percentage from 0 to 100

Text Settings

You have an opportunity to use different styles of your title by adding html tags. For example <h4>your title</h4> will show the title with red background, and <h5>your title</h5> will show the title with gray background. You can add the width of text container to manage the text animation. All options to configure text position before/on/after works the same as with the images.
