Film Slider documentation
TemplateMonster FilmSlider module is an implementation of elegant and professional jQuery plugin ‘Slider Pro’. Allows you to add slider with multiple layers to your store home page. Rich collection of slider configuration options and user interface will help you to configure your slider fast and easily.
Attention!!!Due to the peculiarities of the engine you will have to use any console environment with the command line. Module configuration will be mainly performed via the command line. If you perform changes on the hosting server, you can contact your hosting provider for help and use the hosting command line.
First, copy the content of the archive (app folder) to the root folder of your online shop. After copying run the console and navigate to the root shop folder.
Then run the following commands in the command line, one by one:
