Add a slide in a slider

Add a slide in a slider

Magento 1.9 with Ultimo Theme 1.10.4.

 

Trying to add a slide in the home page slider.

 

Sliders seems to be taken with sytem --> configuration --> (infortis extensions) slideshow

 

It uses static blocks. I have created a new one called block_slide3 (1,2, 4 were already published)

 

I have put it in configurations here there's a screenshot

 

I have flushed all magento caches. Nothing has happened.

 

I've found some user guide and followed them.

 

Question is if this slideshow is the right one (but I really don't see anything else) or I have passed some fundamental steps.

 

Thanks and Regards

Re: Add a slide in a slider

The configuration seems to be correct as shown by you.. Is there any extra setting provided which will enable the slideshow on home page.. may be included something in the home page layout file.

Re: Add a slide in a slider

Thank you.

 

Have you an idea where should it be the home page layout file?

Re: Add a slide in a slider

Hi,

I think you missed to add code on home page: 

 

Go to Admin-> CMS -> Pages 

 

Click on Home page on the list of content

 

Then click on Content and add below code on the top of the editor(if not added):

 

{{block type='bannerslider/bannerslider' template='bannerslider/bannerslider.phtml'}}  

 

Please change above code according your slider extension name.

 

Please let know if you still have an issue.

 

Thanks,

Re: Add a slide in a slider

Hi Dibyajyoti and thanks for your reply,

In my home page content there's not a slider to be edited from with the
editor. Probably the code of the slider is in the home page template file.
But I haven't been able to find that file until now.

Re: Add a slide in a slider

Hi,

You can just add this code: {{block type='bannerslider/bannerslider' template='bannerslider/bannerslider.phtml'}}

and replace bannerslider in your template name.

Re: Add a slide in a slider

Nice idea.

 

I only need to find the file of the home template. Have you an idea where it would be?

 

Under /app/design/frontend/ultimo/? And then? There are too many folders and files but anyone seems to be the right one.

 

 

Re: Add a slide in a slider

Hi,

 

There is no such page particular for home page. If you need to change some code then you can go to below location:

 

/app/design/frontend/default/Your theme folder/template/page/

 

If you change some code in header section then go to :

 

/app/design/frontend/default/Your theme folder/template/page/html/

 

Thanks,

Re: Add a slide in a slider

Hi,

 

To know which page is use on your home page please go to below steps:

 

  1. Log into the Magento back-end admin
  2. Go to System -> Configuration in the main menu
  3. Go to Developer on the bottom left under ADVANCED
  4. Switch to the store view on the top left to your current website or store view or main website.
  5. Under the Debug tab of the same Developer config page you will see a new option appear that will allow you to turn on/off template path hints.

If still you have problem then please let me know.

 

If this solution is fulfill your solution please mark as accept.
