jQuery slider / carousel for WooCommerce Products (3 posts)

    So, I'm working on a site for my employer that can be found here.
    It's an elegant theme's based theme ( that uses WooCommerce ) that I'm customizing with child themes to my specifications. I want the product info to still be updated through the GUI of WooCommerce, yet be placed in the required tags of this carousel to lay it out on a horizontal scroll.

    The desired carousel can be found here

    If anybody has any info on how I can accomplish this given the above mentioned circumstances, I would be greatly appreciative.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Yes, I've implemented several types of sliders for use with woocommerce products.

    It actually looks like the html of the existing slider lines up with the html needed for the slider you want. Now, the only thing you have to do (aside from replacing the jquery plugin that's loaded)
    is alter the query that drives the slider.

    Elegant themes themes tend to have lots of files buried in dozens of folders - it can be difficult to find the file you need to modify (and generally, it's inadvisable to modify a theme like this, as it kinda of puts you in a bind if they ever release an update) - Not saying you shouldn't do it, but you want to have detailed notes on the changes so you can retrace your steps when an update is released.

    Could you possibly give me a relatively simple walk-through of this ? I'm fairly knowledgable in HTMl / CSS, but kind of lacking in the PHP and jQuery dept. I'm not entirely worried about customizing the theme's functionality either, as I don't plan on updating the theme any time soon.

    Thanks :)
