[TomatoCart] Slide New and Featured Products Content Module is Available to You

In this article, I will teach you how to make the products slide in new and feature products content module within your store. Moreover, you could also set a lot of settings for slider effect in your admin panel.

Now, let me illustrate the detailed steps to add such kind of functionality into your store.

Step 1. Download slide_new_feature_products.zip.

Step 2. Unzip the package and copy the following folds within it into your tomatocart root directory:

  1. ext
  2. includes
  3. templates

Please just override the original folds. Don’t worry about it. I will not impact your system.

Step 3.  Open index.php under templates > glass_gray fold.

Add following code snippet before the </head> tag:

<script src="ext/jquery-1.9.1.min.js"></script>

<script>jQuery.noConflict();</script>

Step 4. Install and then set the settings for new products and feature products module under admin panel > Templates > Templates Modules > Content.

  • Slide Items: This variable allows you to set the maximum amount of items displayed at a time with the widest browser width
  • Slide Speed: Slide speed in milliseconds
  • Slide Pagination Speed: Pagination speed in milliseconds
  • Auto Play: Change to any integrer for example autoPlay : 5000 to play every 5 seconds. If you set autoPlay: true default speed will be 5 seconds.
  • Stop On Hover: Stop autoplay on mouse hover
  • Scroll Per Page: 
  • Show Pagination: Show pagination in the slider
  • Show Pagination Numbers: Show numbers inside pagination buttons

That’s it. Enjoy it.

Note: it is just for glass gray template rather than bootstrap template. When I have time, I will implement same functionality for bootstrap template.

    Jack, can you please explain why theses “updates”, features and bug fixes never been integrated into Tomatocart installation package? Why the hell thousands of TC customers fix the same bugs, add the same features, do the same functional updates and invent bicycles? Is there any chance that you will find the time to add NEEDED features to installation?
    Why you do not update Tomatocart with these features and THEN write to the blog?

    Now TC looks like LEGO with half of broken details and many details which are not fully compatible with other features? Have you tried to check HOW it works in other online concurrent ecommerce solutions like OpenCart etc?

      Hi Dartco,

      I implemented these features as a plugin for the users who may need them. I haven’t enough time to merge them into TomatoCart installation package yet.

      I will arrange time to do it within next week. It should be possible to release a new TomatoCart version in next month.

      We will improve the framework to make the system more flexible so that other developers could integrate plugin into system easily. In OpenCart, they use a xml file to let developers override core system. This solution is not good enough because it will also result in conflicts too. Anyway, we will use a better solution for it.

    Jack, I’m not talking about copying of Opencart. I’m talking about features that SHALL be in ANY MODERN online store. For example – advanced filtering by attributes shall be a part of main package, because it’s very important for online sales. You just need to answer to simple questions for yourself: what the features shall contain modern online shop to be useful for customers? If customer can’t find products or filter them by his restriction he will go to another. There’s so many simple but effective features that are not functioning or functioning wrong and shall be fixed or added. You and we need to formulate the TC paradigma and work on implementation of it.

    There shall be also advanced automation functions which can help shop owners to grow up.
    For example: Why shop owners shall implement the same advanced search functions? It’s not be easier if main package will contain REALLY advanced search which allow to select where to search (product name, SKU, model, or full description).

    Existing modules shall be tweaked to be not just the part of packages but useful modern tools for sales.
    I propose to create some votes about features that shall be a part of main package between TC shop owners. That’s the way how TC can progress.

    PS: And please, move TC forum to phppbb engine and do something to clean up spammers from the forum. There shall be not only nominal, but real moderators

      I forgot about social networks features (likes, login with social network account) and some automation features like automatic news generation on the Facebook wall etc.
      You just need to communicate and we can do TC better than other products but you need to finish every step (implementation, testing and fixes)

    Hi Jack
    Thank you
    Only if it instead of using the page number of the model would be better used zebra-pagination
    While in the store, the number of products they have placed a great deal with the current situation many page numbers will not be very Interestingly
