JoomlaXTC Virtuemart Banner Suite
The Virtuemart Banner suite gives you a whole new way to showcase and advertise your products automatically with virtually no set up and the power of the Virtuemart Media Manager. The package consists of a showcase module and content plug for displaying your product banners in a module position or inside content pages.
Installing the package:
First unzip the jxtc_vmbannersuite.zip file. You will then have 2 zip files extracted - 1 - Module and - 1 - Plug In
The Virtuemart Banner Suite Module and Plug In install like all Joomla Modules via the Extensions Install area of your Joomla Administrator.
Adding Banners To Virtuemart Products:
Use the Virtuemart Media Manager (this is the media panel included in VM1.1 where you upload your extra photos and downloadable files) to upload your banners for your products.
Select the additional images setting and name each image with a '_banner' suffix (i.e. 'apple_banner.jpg') and save. Unpublish all images with _banner, this allows the banners only to be shown in the banner and not on the Virtuemart image gallery.
