WooCommerce WooSlider Products Slideshow
The WooSlider WooCommerce Product Slideshow plugin is an extension of our widely used WooSlider plugin. It hooks into WooCommerce in order to display the user’s products within a slideshow that is thoughtfully created and organised.
To control which products appear in a slideshow, use product categories and tags. Show only highlighted or “in stock” products, for instance.
The best part is that you have a lot of control over how the items appear in the slideshow. Options consist of:
- Quantity of goods
- Show the “Add to Cart” button next to the product.
- Navigation thumbnails
- Layout choices
- Options for text overlay
- Only show the “featured products”
Fast Slide Loading
Many websites that attempt to incorporate slideshows have encountered performance problems. You can now enjoy both cake and ice cream: Even for high resolution photographs, quick loading is possible thanks to optimised loading routines.
WooSlider – WooCommerce Product Slideshow installation instructions:
- Zip file can be downloaded from your WooCommerce.com account.
- If you want to upload the file you downloaded using Choose File, go to WordPress Admin > Plugins > Add New.
