When enabled, the Featured Ads Slider displays Featured Ads in an animated block, allowing users to scroll ads inside.

Featured Ads Slider Settings

The Featured Ads Slider contains 2 functions:

  • show_slider - will display the normal slider with the parameters
  • show_responsive_horizontal_slider - will display responsive slider with its parameters

Website administrator can use the following settings to change the look of a Slider:

  • featured_listings_template - the template that will display the slider (by default it is featured_listings_big.tpl )
  • scrolling_direction — the direction for listing scrolling:
    • right_to_left
    • left_to_right
    • top_down
    • bottom_up
  • number_of_rows - the number of rows that you want to display (works only in non-responsive themes)

The look of the slider can be easily changed in /modules/listing_feature_featured_slider/apps/FrontEnd/templates/_files and /modules/listing_feature_featured_slider/apps/FrontEnd/templates/_files, including the arrows and the design.css file.

You can find the module at Admin Panel -> System Configuration -> Module Manager among other modules. There you can disable the Featured Ads Slider module if you do not want to use it.
