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,

I have the same issue.  Prestashop 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.
