This banner is a simple-to-add solution for commercial websites that have any kind of sales, special offers, discounts etc. It reads products on a special offer info from an XML file. It can run in random mode (displaying products in a random sequence), or in a normal mode (displays the products the in the order they are sorted in the XML). If it runs in random, it creates the random sequence once and sticks to it rather than just picking a random product product each time around. This way, every product gets displayed the same number of times during the visit to the page (same as on my previous random banner http://activeden.net/item/xml-random-image-banner-rotator/7247 )
Here are the things that are set via XML for each product:
â€¢ Image â€¢ Title and description for the product â€¢ Discount (main text in the star) â€¢ Sub text in the star (small text beneath the â€œ25%â€, â€œ75$â€ etc) â€¢ Star color – three available (red, pink, orange) but by editing a single movie clip, you can easily add more (explained in the instructions.pdf) â€¢ Link (where it leads to when clicked)
Here are the things that are set in XML for the whole banner (all products):
â€¢Is it random â€¢How many products you want to include in the rotation â€¢How long is each product displayed (in seconds)
The code is well commented so feel free to edit it to your liking. Also the file includes a instructions.pdf with an explanation on how to set up the XML file, add more colors to the star etc.. I hope you find this useful
