Popular Products , loopedslider

Hi there,

 

I'm a newbie in osCommerce. Installed a pre-designed template that has a popular products category or a loopslider. When I went to backend, deleted all the old products, and added new ones, they don't appear in the popular products any more. Are they added automatically, when you click on the actual products ? If so, is there any way to add it yourself? thanks

this really depends on the template you used. It may be hardcoded for certain product IDS, using a certain categories_id that you do not have any more (adding new categories adds NEW categories_ids), it may be using an internal top 10 from the ordered products, if the database was already filled with test orders or it may be an extra module where you need to select these (not very probable).

 

In any case, your code would need to be evaluated. The templates are great ... if you understand them and can fix them to make them work for you. In many cases though, they create costs for a new shopowner as he cannot change them himself. Which is why most template companies offer template tuning also ;-) ...

I have the same problem. Its like the developers have hard coded the items to the slider.

 

When I delete an item it messes the slider up and I cant get it to work again.
