HikaShop generator

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

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

Tutorial

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

  2. Choose to give dynamic slides to your slider.

  3. Choose HikaShop - Products or Products by id, if you only want to show specific 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.
  • Brands - You can select brands to filter your products from the selected categories.
  • Tags - You can select tags to filter your products further.
  • Warehouses - You can select warehouses to filter your products further.
  • Item ID - HikaShop products can show up on any pages, because that is how Joomla works, so your product's link can be as many links, as many menu items you have in your website. To make Joomla choose one of your menu items, you can give an Item ID, which will connect your product link to that page. This can be useful, when you want one of your menu items to be active, when you go to the link the url variable will lead. Also your different pages have different modules on them, so with the Item ID you will specify which modules will show up on this product page too. You see your pages' Item ID-s, if you turn off the SEO links in the System → Global Configuration → Search Engine Friendly URLs, then you will see it in the links of your pages in the frontend. If you leave the Item ID on 0, that will be the base Item ID, which is usually your Homepage. You can read more about this in here.
