Under my slide Image, I have only one slide configuration setting, not the second part slide configuration, whereby I can add new slides, any idea?

Hello Janice,

Both configuration settings should be there by default. I would try Uninstalling the module and then reinstalling it to see if there was a glitch. Also, what specific version of PrestaShop are you using? Did you make any other changes (modules added, etc)?

Kindest Regards,
Scott M

I have the same issue.  Prestashop 1.6.0.5 has only the width, no configuration setting for the height.

Hello Allan,

As this article is for PrestaShop 1.5, it will not necessarily have the correct instructions for 1.6. We are currently working on creating articles for 1.6 and I will definitely check into the behavior of the slider for the new version.

The image slider has french text ontop of it (actually on the slider itself - not in the homepage) that cannot be edited or removed with the home editor. I have spent 6 hours trying to figure this one out. It is definitely NOT embedded into the photo as its highlightable with the text-drag feature of the mouse

"EXCEPTEUROCCAECAT Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Proin tristique in tortor et dignissim. Quisque non tempor leo. Maecenas egestas sem eli"

 

is on the fashion default theme but I cant remove it from the header block because it is actually printed over the slider. NO THE HOME EDITOR DOESNT DO ANYTHING... Please help

Hello Lance,

Is your PrestaShop language set to French? That text is temporary template text, and it seems like some PrestaShop users have reported this text goes away when switching to another language like Vietnamese, so I wonder if it's tied in with a language template.

If you'd like for us to take a look we would need the domain you're having these issues on. If you'd like to just reply to this comment with that info, we can delete any private data before making the comment go public.

Hello Didier,

Sorry to hear about the problems with your images. Unfortunately, you have given us very little to work with in order to troubleshoot your problem. If you can provide information on your settings, your images, or at least provide a URL, then we can look into the issue for you. There are many possibilities that my cause the slider not to work, but we need more information in order to determine the source of the problem.

Please provide more information and we would be happy to help.

Regards,
Arnel C.

Hello Patrick,

Unfortunately it will be a bit tough to troubleshoot what might be wrong if your installation of PrestaShop is local. My guess would be that you either don't have the required jQuery JavaScript, or CSS files stored locally, or that the files in /modules/homeslider are having issues.

I went ahead and downloaded the Simple Black theme and was able to load it in PrestaShop and still have the image slider work. Did it work at all before you added any custom images to it?

Hello again Patrick,

If the default theme works, then I would have to assume something is missing from your Simple Black theme. Do you actually see the theme change the look of your store when you have it active, does everything look proper other than the image slider?

I noticed when I downloaded the .zip file for the theme, there were 2 other .zip files contained within it. The theme files themselves are located in the PrestaSkins_Theme_Simple_Black.zip file and need to be placed in your /themes/PS_Simple_Black directory.

Here you can see below I've got the theme loaded on one of our servers and it's working without any issues:



Without being able to see your full local site it would be hard for us to troubleshoot this problem for you. Do you happen to have the ability to load your site on a public accessible server where we could take a look?

Hello Patrick,

No problem at all, hopefully it was just a missed step in unzipping the theme files and you can get it to work locally as well. Either way, let us know if you figure it out!

Hello again Patrick,

We have a guide that covers how to install a theme in PrestaShop 1.5 as well as how to install a theme in PrestaShop 1.6 depending on the version you're using. Basically you'd want to extract the PrestaSkins_Theme_Simple_Black.zip file that you downloaded locally first.

Then inside that extracted folder, navigate to the /themes directory. You'd want to move the PS_Simple_Black folder to your PrestaShop's /themes directory. That directory should then look similar to this when viewing it:

debug.tpl
default/
index.php
live_edit.tpl
PS_Simple_Black/


Then you would Login to PrestaShop, hover over Preferences and click on Themes. You should then see the PS_Simple_Black theme towards the middle of the page. You'd want to select the radio button under it, then click on Save to activate the theme.

I'm not sure what you mean by your second question. When you first setup the Image slider for your homepage module in PrestaShop it comes with some default images already so that's what you should be seeing by default.

Hello again Patrick,

When I go to that URL you've provided, I am able to see the image slider working as expected. Are you still having any issues with that public site from your end?

If you are still having problems seeing the image slider correctly, what web-browser are you using? Could you possibly try another web-browser on your computer to see if it's also having the same issue?

Hello Patrick,

I see now that it's broken. However when you first posted the link it was working. It looks like you're using PrestaShop 1.6. I apologize as you were commenting on this article of ours specifically related to PrestaShop 1.5 I had assumed that's what you were using.

The Simple Black theme is not compatible with PrestaShop 1.6. You can see this by going to the Simple Black PrestaShop Theme page, and then click on the Data sheet tab, notice how it says Built for PrestaShop version: 1.5.6.1-2 this is a good indication that it probably won't work with the 1.6 version.

In cases like this when the default theme is working, and one you download is not, chances are the one you've downloaded has problems.

Hello Patrick,

The theme that you've selected, yes, it does require the older version of PrestaShop 1.5. PrestaShop 1.6 is the latest stable release, and is what I would recommend if you are just starting out building a store.

I would recommend looking for a theme that actually works with that version rather than trying to get something that wasn't built for it to work.
