Have you ever wanted to feature something using Slideshow module in a specific categories or subcategories only? for example you special slideshow with notebooks to be featured just in notebook category?
By default in opencart if you create a Slideshow with baners and assign it to categories layout the very same Slideshow then are displayed in each category of your shop, no matter this category is related with the slideshow or no:)
Lets admit that it is not very admin friendly especially if you want advertise different things with slideshows in different categories.
But that is in the past:) with this extension you will be able to show different Slideshows in different categories, from now, you will be able to specify which slideshow must be visible on what categories.
This module from now will allow you to create and manage Slideshows for the categories of your shop. So you can setup only SELECTED slideshows to be visible in the specified category ONLY.
This extension can highly BOOST your sales by helping promote MORE things using diferrent Slideshows in diferrent categories instead of showing one and the same slideshow in ALL CATEGORIES.
PS: if you do not select any category , then the slideshow module will be displayed on all categories (as a default opencart slideshow module)
