Slideshow Manager

The Slideshow Manager is a separate system for managing the slides in your homepage slideshow. It requires a separate username and password from your storefront admin. You would have received this information in an email. You can either access the slideshow manager directly using the link in the email or by clicking the link in the storefront navigation.

TIP: When clicking the admin link to the Slideshow Manager left column navigation, right click and select to open it in a new tab/window to keep your current admin session available. The link in the Dashboard navigation will open a new tab/window automatically.

After logging in to the Slideshow Manager you will see a list of the slides that have been uploaded to the manager, whether visible in the slideshow or not.

1. To Add a new slide to your slideshow, click the Add new button near the top left and complete the fields.

2. To Modify an existing slide (i.e. upload a different image, add/change/delete a link or caption, etc), click the Edit icon for that slide record.

3. Each field in the Slideshow Manager provides a tooltip when you hover over it explaining what to enter in that field. Here is an overview of each field available on the Add/Edit screen:

  • ID: Database Record ID
  • Slide: Browse your computer and upload an image at the size noted in the tooltip (This would be the same size we sent to you via email)
  • Alt. Text: Enter alternate text to display for this image in text-only browsers
  • Caption: (optional) Enter a caption to display for this image
  • Link: (optional) Full URL to access when this image is clicked. Include the http://
  • Target: If the link is entered, select the link type from the drop-down list. You may choose either Internal Link to a Page in This Site or External Link to a Page on a Different Site
  • Visible: Check this box to display/activate this item on the website. Uncheck to hide/deactivate this item.
  • Sort Rank: Enter a number for the sort display order of active items. Items display in numeric order from 1 up.

Two additional fields are visible on the List and View screens:

  • Filename: Displays the name of the file that was uploaded.
  • Date Modified: Displays the date this record was last modified

4. To keep any changes made to a new or existing image record, you must click the SAVE button when you are finished.

5. When adding slides to the slideshow, you will want to upload images at the exact size in dimensions that we provided to you when the system was installed or at a larger proportional size. Larger images will be resized down to the largest dimension (width or height) with a proportional corresponding dimension. If your images are not proportional, the slideshow may expand or contract for each image, which could look odd. Thumbnails in the slideshow manager are created automatically.

To create new slides you may wish to get an image editor to resize your slide images. We suggest searching http://download.cnet.com/ to find one or GOOGLE "Free image programs" (there are tons). We personally use Photoshop, but it is not required. If you would like a FREE robust image editor, you might try the one called GIMP. It is like a free version of Photoshop.

6. If your Slideshow is installed within a Storefront (version ACE 3.0 or ACE 4.0), you may need to clear the site cache to actually see any changes you make within the Slideshow Manager.

  • a. Within the admin click on Maintenance within the admin navigation and select the Rebuild tab.
  • b. Check all 4 boxes in the Cache section - or at minimum check the "Clear image cache".
  • c. Click Submit.

Merge to file

Changes made to the store text in the Edit Phrases section are stored in the database. Changes can be exported to a file located in the 'languages' directory allowing the new language file to then be used in other stores. It is important to note that any language packs exported will not contain newly added phrases until the merge tool has been used to update the language XML files. The storefront system does not do this by default as the store owner may not wish to save over the default values.

The Language files only store text which has been changed from the parent language. All language files fall back to the master definitions.xml file if no value is present.

Options

Replace original language file: If you check this option all changes made to the selected language will be exported from the database to the main language file. For example, if exporting the English (US) language, with this not checked it will export to 'en-US-custom.xml'. However if this options is ticked it will export to 'en-US.xml' overwriting the main English (US) language.

Compress file: Select this to enable file compression.

Select your preferred options and click the Export button.

Using the Language File

When you come to using the newly exported language file in another store, you will first need to create the new language within Admin giving it the same language code. Then you will need to FTP the language XML file to the 'languages' directory of the store, possibly overwriting the language file that was generated upon language creation.

Create Language

Advanced Feature: Recommended for use by Experienced Users Only

Enter the following details and click the Save button:

Language Name: Enter the name of the new language.

When creating a new language, the language file is created in the 'languages' directory. You will also need to create a flag image in the 'flags' subdirectory with the name '<language_code>.png'.

Changes made to the text of a language overrides text from the parent language. If you are creating a new language with the aim of translating the text, during the translation changes are only written to the database. The translated text is only stored in the language file when it is exported, allowing the new language file to then be used in other stores.
