VirtueMart generator

This dynamic slide generator is available in the PRO version only.

With this dynamic slide generator you can show the contents of your VirtueMart products.

Tutorial

  1. Create a new slider, or use an existing one.

  2. Choose to give dynamic slides to your slider.

  3. Choose VirtueMart - Products.

  4. Set up your generator, choose the settings you think you want, change the number of slides to how many do you want to be in your slider, change the cache expiration to the time you want your slider to look for new data, and if you want to, you can check, what will be on your slides in the record viewer.
  5. Now you can start working on how your slides will look with the datas of the first slide. You can put down layers, and use the VARIABLE signs to put that data inside them, what you want there to be.

  6. If something is not clear, check out how the dynamic slide generators work.

Filter

  • Categories - You can select the categories from where you want the products.
  • Manufacturers - You can select manufacturers to filter your products from the selected categories.
  • Featured - You can choose to only show the featured, not featured or all products.
  • In stock - You can choose to only show those products, which are in stock, which aren't in stock, or all.
  • Language filter - You can filter out the products based on the language. You can find a language filter list in here. If you can't find, which one do you need, check your database, and look for the [prefix]_virtuemart_products_[language_code] table, where the [language_code] is what you need, for example my table is this: yirt3_virtuemart_products_en_gb and the language filter will be en_gb.
